I'm not too picky, though I do have my favs. I love Thoroughbreds for their looks, history & speed! Friesians of course are the prettiest (in my opinion anyway) horses out there, but my personal pics would be the Arab & the QH.
The Arab because they are bold, athletic & highly intelligent (not saying others aren't, though ;) Most people think they are highstrung & flighty, but i'v found them to be quite managable under the right hands (they arent as forgiving as other breeds, however) & really arent that flghty. If something spooks em, they don't generally bolt, but turn & face the problem before reacting.
When I was a kid, I downright refused to own a QH (only because everyone around my place owned them! Silly, I know...) but now I really like them. They're generally all-around good horses.
