I don't like the saddle-seat bred ones, or gaited ones, but I just love the head on them, and as long as they're crest doesn't get ridiculous and their toes aren't grown too long, I think they're marvelous. I'd love to own one someday, if I come across a nice one, I'll surely snatch it up.
This is Dandy, he was about 15.3hh, ugliest shade of boring brown/chestnut I've ever seen, and when I met him he was just hanging around, I just thought "eww," until I started riding him. If I remember right, he was a great Training Level dressage horse [maybe Level I?], and I'm sure he could have gone a lot farther. I miss him terribly, I left the barn and I think he went back to the original owners. Oh, and this was a therapy barn, by the way, he was donated. =]
