American quarter horse!

1. I love their talent, good nature, versatility, mindset, stamina, looks, and of course their personalities!
2. I've grown up around them. I show my appendix quarter horse all over the US and love it!
3. Sadly, I'm on my phone and can't put up a picture:/

Best for what? I wouldn't ask a draft horse to race in the Kentucky Derby and I wouldn't ask an Arab to pull the Budwieser wagon.
I've worked with Arabs, TB, QH, Appaloosas, Mules, Paints, Peruvians, Mustangs, and several other breeds. Each has it's own good qualities and negative qualities. Personally I wouldn't pick one over the other until I knew the specific "job" the horse was to do.

At the moment I own Colorado Ranger breds and mules.

What I meant was what breed do you like the most.
I was thinking the same thing when I made this thread.

Arabs!
I think their pretty, bond really well to their owners, can do anything you ask of them. Don't know many other breeds that can run the track, then do dressage and then also run long distance races. They are all around horses!

TBs can do all of those things, too.

I adore Arabians and they'll always be my first love, but they're by no means good at everything.

depends on the horse! But I love tbs too, thoroughbreds may be faster than arabs in the 1 mile but I do not see one running a 100 mile race at the same pace as an arab! I am very biased when it comes to arabs though, so please don't take any of my comments in a mean way, I just love them so much :)

There are plenty of TBs who do endurance, CTR, and LTR. It's true that Arabians dominate the endurance circuit, but they're not the only horse breed who can do it well.

Not dissing your love of Arabians because I think they're pretty nifty too, but plenty of other breeds are just as versatile.

Hmm Connemaras

Why? Because they are unreal jumpers and are only ponies. I love them so much! One connemara jumped over 7ft in a puissance once. A little thing about 14.2hh.

I have never had any experience with them myself but I have seen them in action..

Quarter Horses.

I'm biased because they're the dominant breed up around these parts. Abby's registered as a Paint, but she's mostly QH. I ride Western, so I don't really need a 17hh Warmblood for Dressage or something. I like my stock breeds, wide chests and thick builds...mmmm love. The majority of them are level-headed and willing to work and learn. And who couldn't love their BIG BUTTS?!
