    Not all are. My friends have a 20 yo and he's calm and very sweet. (Unless you want him to go and theres barrels/open field! Lol)
    My sisters friend has a 3yo mare that is VERY green and off track. I can't tell you how calm she is. Not hot or anything. Now I know why she left the track so soon. Lol.
    I agree with above, unless he's somehow gaited?
    He's a cutie.

    Two of the sweetest, most sane horses I've known were TBs that were just off the track. They belonged to a couple of friends that I boarded with. Neither of them were older than 7 and Molly, the mare, was so gentle that the owners let their three-year-old son walk her in from turnout on his own (adults where within helping range, but the little boy had.complete control of Molly). She was 16hh and even dropped her head to his level to be haltered. The gelding, Compton, was my favorite horse on the property, aside from mine. If my friend had been willing to sell him, I would have bought him in half a heartbeat.

    I had said earlier I've only had him a little over a week but his previous owner told me he was very lazy, but he was pasture and gate sour, as well as when you ride him if you smack his butt he will "buck " but what she described is more of a pitch. These are the only problems she said he had and that's why she was giving him away. He is very sweet and now that he has room, she had a small lot with 4 horses, he loves to run and occasionally will kick up his feet. Now the other day I was feeding the bits and he tried to get in the bucket and while I was trying to back him he pinned his ears back ..my other two if they get in my space with a little pressure they will move and they have never pinned their ears towards me. I'm thinking that may have something to do with why she let him go for free? I dunno but she had told me he was quarter horse. He really is a sweety though :)

    Sounds like he doesn't have very good ground manners, which would be the fault of his previous owners, not his breed. It also sounds like he needs some work under saddle. Smacking on the butt should be a last resort to make a horse move and if you have to resort to that, you need to go back to basics. How old is he? He looks young.

    As for running and kicking when turned out...my draft cross does that too when he gets to go out in turnout.

    My horses are always out in the pasture. I love having him cause my TWH's don't do that and he is a pleasure to watch. Yeah, the previous owner let him get away with everything ..nothing a little work can't fix!

    I don't smack on the butt or use whips on my boys. She said he's 9 .

    Everything I said about his training (or lack thereof) was directed at saying his previous owner was at fault, not you.
