    I don't actually own my horses, as they are on free lease, but I have a stock horse and a standardbred. Didn't have much choice in the matter, it was either those horses or nothing.

    The stock horse, she can go far, but I need a trainer - which I cannot afford, so, I have been training her by myself. She possesses a lot of talent for showjumping, and also speed events - like barrel racing.

    The standie is just basically our trail horse. He is getting on, and has no need, or want of jumping over fences. He is just happy to plod along.

    I have a welsh B- but I didn't choose him for his breed however I now adore welshies! And you can't go wrong with a welshie. My boy is an allrounder- but I have competed him in showing, dressage, jumping and a little eventing, and pony club sporting- especialy bending & bounce pony!

    He sounds like a very cute welsh! Hehe I used to ride a welse mountain when I first started to ride as a 4yr old and he looked after me very well!

    Apart from he was sooo greedy....if her out his head down to eat grass there was no way I could get it back up! Hehe

    I own a Appaloosa and 3 other ones, but the Appaloosa is mine. But anyway I use him for about every disicpline...so he is an all arounder.! =]

    I own a Friesian X TB , a Arab QH , A mini, and also a Percheron/Paint. My TB X is in training right now and I semi-retired my Arab X ... But my percheron is definitely My Baby... I think once you ride a perch or a perch cross you will never go back to any other breed of horse . If there is the right cross out there they are awesome! They are really soft and comfy -->Good for jumping but also can turn on the speed if you need (atleast my boy can hehe).

    I prefer Appaloosas- which were bred by the Nez Perce indians of the Oregon region for Intelligence, Strength, good feet, to be easy keepers, and to be brave. We have alost some of these traits as man has bred with QH , TB and other bloodlines, so I would prefer that most breeders would breed for those qualities that make an Appy stand out. I love my app. He does anything I ask and yet is not crazy, does not try to buck or rear or bolt. He's perfect.
