i voted quarter horse because there are probably more of them out there...but i've seen some pretty scrappy appys (in a good way...they dug in and down right flew!)

I voted paint because, Quarter Horses, Appaloosas and Paints are all stock breeds, all with similar conformation so they'll all fair the same really. I'm just a sucker for paints.

What else? Paints of course, but our kissing cousin QHs are OK, too ....smart, quick and rock solid.

On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

I say go for whatever individual horse you find that can compete well in what you want to ride in. It could be any of the horses you listed!

I say you can't go wrong with a nice QH!

Ride more, worry less.

For what you want to do I don't think that those breeds posted are any different from one or another. Because of the sizes you want a QH will probably be better. They tend to be more patient and tolerable of most things.

Cheers

I think paints would be a great choice, especially for western pleasure.
