    Most of my experience has been with gaited horses, but I have ridden a few QHs and I have to agree that they really are a great breed!

    I absolutely LOVE Quarter Horses. They're strong willed, great minded, gentle hearted, trustworthy, and down right the best horse anyone could ever own....
    Enough of my biased opinion. I do love quarter horses and I think they are the best when it comes to getting the job done. My first horse and the horse I have now were/are quarters. My gelding is possibly the SWEETEST horse you could ever met and he's smart as all get out. I can be riding him and he'll push me to my limits but I stick my little sister or anyone who doesnt know how ride, he's a saint. Walks like he's on ice with silettos. Lol. Probably the best horse I will ever own, and guess what? Yep, you guessed it! He's a good ol' American Quarter horse(grade of course. Lol)

    In my younger years for the most part I had only grade stock-type horses that fortunately belonged to friends or borrowed from another's friends. Then in my mid-40's I got to shop for and buy my own horse. I found my "heart horse" in my then 8 year old registered QH mare, that was 16 years ago. She is now a 24 year old and healthy, as well as a horse.

    After I got into the horse scene here locally after acquiring my mare I got to experience MFT, Saddlebreds, Paso Finos, TBs and APHA registered horses and early on experience with Applaoosas. My "heart" always stays with the Quarter Horse.

    I rode a QH in college. She was a dun with the dorsal stripe and tiger stripping on her legs. She also had a little bit of white on her face. I loved her. She was your typical mare, but so sweet when she wanted to be. I was really the only one she got along with. She got sold to a girl who was competing for her college. That's the last I heard. She is probably 9 now. If I ever find her I would scoop her up in a SECOND! She listened, was willing, loved water and trails. She was strong and could run like the wind. I felt fearless on her. I would recommend a QH to anyone anyday, of course now I have an OTTB who is nothing liker her at all! Haha

    I like them for everything except their endurance and feet in general, ya ya I know there are exceptions. Atleast that's what I see in them.

    Im not scared to speak up....Im not a big fan. They just arent my style at all. Big heads on a short neck that comes out of the shoulders, low in front and a huge butt. Low heads just look sad to me. They just not for me, but are great for lots of other people.
    That being said, My daughter does have one. I don't like him ( to ride or look at), but he is great for her and he adores her, so.......he is just what I need him to be, and I love him for that.

    Now that she is getting brave, she wants to show MY horse.....um NO!

    I have more experience with QH than any other breed. I really like the fact that they come in many different shapes and sizes. The downside is unless you know the parents and what exactly they were breed for you never really know what your getting. The could come from reining lines, racing lines, they could be less athletic or very athletic. I have known a lot of mellow ones and a lot of hight strung ones. Some are extremly smart, some not so much. So it reall depends on the inividual horse

    I learned to ride on a Quarter Horse and learned to hold on on an Arabian.

    LOL.. Most of the QHs I have ridden were willing and kind. Smart and really easy to ride. And I LOVE the looks of a well bred QH. Plus if I stand next to one it makes my butt look small. Just seeing a Quarter horse butt showing through the back of a trailer makes me smile. Love it!!

    To be serious, I really have felt safe on the QHs I've been on. When I do get another full sized horse I'm seriously thinking of a QH rather than an Arab. (That's saying a lot because I love the Arabian!)

    I have a 15 year old FQH mare and quite honestly, she's the perfect horse for me. I love Quarter Horses.
