I LOVE LOVE LOVE my TB mare Jubilee! She is the most amazing horse on earth!!! Haha (OK... I am biased). She is 17 years old but acts like an 8-year old. Lol. She has tons of energy and is in great shape. She loves being ridden. She does dressage and jumping. I've had her since October and she is seriously my dream horse!! I'll post a pic in a little bit.
I don't own a tb at the minute, but I ride 3 (though 1 more often than the other 2). I like their athleticism, and I like their quirky personalities. Yes, I like the divas! Makes them very interesting to work with.
My second horse was also a tb. He was an 11, big chesnut with 2 hind socks. He was a thick 16'2hh.He was registered and had been owned a police officer. This horse was broke for pretty much anything. Anyone could get on him and we could do anything with him from trails, to showing to even vaulting or other stupid things kids do.
He was a very laid back horse tho when he wanted to he would use his size to be a jerk. If you didnt know him he would have scared you.
Although I haven't got a horse. I've ridden a few TBs before. I find the ones that are really well mannered very obedient and observent. They're so cute! In fact, I think two of the best horses I've ridden where TBs. Another thing I find really good about them is that they are suppe athletic so you can do anything with them, especially race!
