What Breed of Horse do You Love?

What breed(s) of horse(s) do you like the most? Whether for looks, temperment, or just because, what kind(s) do you like best?
post pics of them! if you've had experience with them, say so. if you haven't, say so,too.
I like Morgans. I have had experience with them. They have good temperament, nice looks, and calm with the right ammount of spirit right where you want it. Of course, there are some that defy those and come out nasty, but that rare. They hold their tail up and to the side, and can be gaited or un-gaited, and can be trail horses to dressage horses.

arabians...no contest. I love their spirit and personality. My gelding has so much personality, its never a dull moment with him. I've tried a few other breeds and while I enjoyed them, I was always pulled back to arabians. Rocky is polish arab, which is my favorite type. They're a little stockier than other arab types. I love arabians because they're so versatile. With Rocky, I can do dressage one day, take him out on the trail another day, and then go back to the arena and jump.

Appaloosas, i have had an experience with them as i own one (see delta for pics). as they have even temprement (most of the time) and are just a good ride!

I am going to say
1)Paints Even though every single paint I have worked with/ridden has been a little nuts
2)QH the only reason they get 2 is because they don't have the color of the paint or they would be 1 also!
3)Gypsy vanners, they are so majestic!

I love Mustangs. I own 2 and they are very versatile little horses. Their appearance takes some getting used to and you can't judge them as "pretty" like you could a different breed but they are solid using horses. Once you earn their trust, they will do anything for you but they aren't pushovers like a lot of QH are. They are really durable and are up for hard work day after day.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Appaloosa's are by far my favorite, I am partial to them because i had a mare for many years who lived to be in her mid 30's. She was everything to me and would do anything you wanted her to do. Amazing horse.

I love "western" horses. (notice the quotes lol) Appy's and Paints and anything colorful (Paints, Duns, Buckskins). I love color!

I also love QH's and Morgans. My first horse was a Morgan/QH. She was splendid :)
