I feel really stupid, I don't know what my horse is. She is what I prefer I think the warm bloods are the TB types the coldbloods are the QH types hot bloods the arab types is that right? Mine is a Rocky Mountain horse and they have a lot of Spanish influence so is she a warmblood? hotblood? Somebody save me, I'm confussing myself
I like a horse with some get up and go. I also like a horse that is happy plodding along enjoying the scenery. I guess I like a lukewarmblood too.

Don't feel bad..no one I know w/QH/Paints ever refers to cold/warm/hot, but QH/Paints are warm bloods. Here's a list... http://www.horses-and-horse-informat...rmbloods.shtml

Thanks for clearing that up. I kinda thought the coldbloods were the draft breeds. So I guess I have a warmblood. One of those things I rarely hear, horses refered to as warmbloods coldbloods etc. I should have remembered that from 4-H but thats been way to many years ago.

according to the list i have a warmblood. :) I got to say i like them.
They can have some get up and go, but they can also be great for a nice relaxing ride.

..and I always thought that warmbloods were the well, warmbloods. Never knew apps were considered a warmblood too.

Yes, they can have a lot of get up and go. I know people that don't like trail riding with Paints/QHs/etc because they 'walk too slow'. Our Paint mares can indeed do a very relaxing (what I call) 'pokey walk', but take them out in a field and people are amazed how fast they can 'change gears' (I don't have the nerve, yet, to ride that way down a wooded trail unless it was wide...low branches...ouch!)

We have 2 horses same breed one is a slow poke on the the trail. The other is a get up and go. Vida hates having Fras in front on a narrow trail. I try to keep her from running into Fras' butt. I know, its very poor trial riding etiquette . But even at a walk one is much faster than the other.

TB's are hot bloods chick, not warmbloods, other hot bllods include arab, anglo arab, akele teke, that kind of horse, the speedy athletic breeds tend to be hot blooded.

A horse belongs in a stable not on a table!

Gem and Vega are the same way! Vega has much faster gaits than Gem, and she doesn't like being stuck behind him either.
