If you like western riding, and you want a quiet horse, why not go for a QH? Versitile breed and gentle. I love them. Great western horses if you wanted to get into it more as well.

This mite seem like a dumb question but, whats a qh? I know its a breed but I haven't heard of that one yet. O and size is a problem for my, I need at least 15.3 up to 17.3hh. And I would just love to have a trail horse, maybe some horsemanship, not spooky, or loud, and a sound horse.
