    All Paints here, and we enjoy off trail riding where no two rides are ever the same.

    Saddlebred and Saddleseat are my favorites.

    That said, Saddlebred doing dressage, western, huntseat, trail, driving or anything else are my faves too. :)

    My favorite would be Arabians. And discipline would be dressage, jumping, endurance.

    Old-type Morgans are my favorite breed.

    They can do just about anything, having a "oh what are you doing I want in on the action" type of personality (giant dogs in a way, plus they are sturdy. Not to mention they are up there with some of the gaited breeds in how forgiving they can be.

    I don't really care for showing but I love watching show jumpers in action.

    Clydesdales and Draft horses because of their build and the way they move and their nature.

    Second favourite is a Thoroughbred x Clydesdale.
    I don't know why I've never even seen a one personally.


    I would one day LOVE to do dressage or cross country but I'm a PROUD hacker

    I'm a Hanoverian girl. I'm lucky enough to have my own and she's perfect for me. They have such beautiful movement and they're perfect for my favourite discipline, which is dressage. I love dressage because when you get that perfect test, it just feels so good. I love the harmony, flow and rhythm of it.

    Id say my favorite would be Rocky Mountain Horses, with the TWH being a close second, Id say I do about 60A%A of my time in the saddle chasing dogs and there is something to be said for a smooth ride and a level head.

    I grew up with QH and Appy's, and really enjoy going to Barrel races to watch my wife and daughter but, for my own personal style I like the gaited stuff

    I think my Avatar says it all.

    Love those Clydes. I've got a soft spot for Belgians and Perch's as well. ;)

    My heart will always belong to thoroughbreds. More specifically, off-track thoroughbreds. I have one so I might be a little biased, but there are a lot of reasons why they are my fave. I have learned a lot about them over the years, but I've learned even more in the last year since I started boarding at a barn that works with CANTER. I get to see them transform, from the moment they step off the trailer that picked them up from the track, to the moment they step on the trailer to go to their new home. It is an amazing experience, and they are amazing horses.

    I love their spirit, their determination, and how they seem to pick up on everything around them. In the wrong hands, they can be flighty and hard to handle, but with a patient and understanding rider, they can turn into very willing and hard working partners. When they are given the chance to express themselves and actually contribute to the goal, all they want to do is succeed. Just like racing, all you have to do is "Turn 'em loose!" Figuratively speaking, of course.

    Favorite discipline? Hmm... Well, I don't show, but I love schooling in dressage. It's rhythmic and harmonious. Like yoga, but for the rider AND their horse. I also love to watch show jumping or cross country jumping, I just don't have any interest in participating. My horse was an eventer when he was younger, but his back and hocks just can't take it anymore. That's fine with me, though. I'm happy just being a cheerleader for my friends!
