My favorite breeds...well, my favorite horse is an Arabian. I also love to work with ponies.
If I were to look to buy a horse for myself I would probably not consider QH's (as they are so common and I kind of like to be different) or Saddlebreds (I don't like their head and neck carriage, same goes for Friesians, and all those other breeds where the neck goes vertical out of the shoulders). I love the intelligence and fire of a good Arabian, and Im more a fan of Polish, Russian, Spanish lines than the Straight Egyptian. I love me a cute little pony, not as far to fall! I also love the look of most drafty breeds.

Imo QH are some of the most intelligent and willing horses...theyre work horses, bred to be ridden can see to can't see on a ranch and their working machines.

Alot of QH's are used as barrel horses because their built for it too so people see the hot headed crazies and are prejudiced against them...
But I would take a qh over the most expensive prize winning horse of any other breed on my ranch any day.

Hmmm...I guess I would have to say QH, or QH crosses...I love the mind of a good QH, and they seem to carry over into most crossbreds...most of the horses I have personally owned, have either been QH or cross.

I also love a good minded, built Arab...

My last horse (QH/Arab) Pride, rip...



Current horse, (QH/Walker), Flicka

Haha...I have YET to spend over 600$ for a horse... My current mare was advertised for 200$ due to her buck and bolt issues, and I traded my the Appy gelding that I had retrained for trail riding and was selling for much more than that...they were willing to pay for him, but I didn't take it.

My favorite would be the mustang, they are so intelligent, testing and trustworthy. I have owned two, and worked with five and I have learned more from them, then from all the horses I've rode and worked with in the last thirteen years.
And there so much fun they will definitely make you smile

Don't breed, buy. Don't buy, adopt.

I love drum horses.. :) I was a fan of the gypsy vanners until I found the drums. Very much like a vanners- except these guys average a height of 16-18hh. They are just beautiful animals. I would love to own one.

British shetlands all the way. Sorry don't like American shetlands.
British shetalnds are exeadingly strong, clever, kind, forgiving, hard working and very loyal. They are versitile and probably have more stamina then quater horses as they were bred to work in coal mines all day pulling exeadingly heavy weights
This is my stallion he einvisions everything I like best about the shetland.

As for being stubon most of them are not stuborn it is all to do with how the are trained and what they can get away with.

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.
