Rocky Mountains are absolutely amazing horses. They're beautiful, extremely intelligent horses with a ton of heart. And you've got to love the chocolates!

The rmh in my life:

But I've got to admit, TBs are earning a place in my heart =P I'm on and off with them. I have a really awesome TB who I'm still getting to know, and right now we have a pretty interesting relationship. He's really willing and sweet and is just always trying to do the right thing, but not in a blind way like I feel like most QHs I've known have done. He's more of a true partner than a lot of horses I've known, who's willing to give as much as or more than I give to him. It's really fascinating to learn about him and about the breed. I've always been in the western world and surrounded by QHs, which I'm not too big a fan of.

I have to say my favorite breed is a Fjord XD probably because their so laid back and mellow, I just wish they were allowed to be taller than 14.2 hands ;.;

If you would have asked me this question 10 years ago I would have said Arabs all the way... 7 years ago it would have undoubtedly been Saddlebreds and NSH's... 4 years ago it would have been paints... 2 years ago it would have been Appy's....

So the truth? It's all on the horse. I would never buy a horse based on breed. I was never a paint fan or an appy fan. Arabs, Saddlebreds, & NSH's have their reputations for hot headed and flighty. It's all the independent horse and their personality, our bond, etc.

Oldenburgs or Irish Sport Horses. When my career gets going and I have money I plan on getting one of both.

I love all types of warmbloods, quarter horses, and welsh ponies. Warmbloods because of their quietness and athletic ability, quarter horses because they are so easy-going and practical, and welshes because they're just so dang cute and make awesome pony hunters!

I love halflingers and arabians. I have a halflinger cross and she just makes me smile everythime I see her. She was my first horse at 10 yrs old and I am 23 now and just keep loving her more and more. She is bay with a long thick black maine with beautiful eyes and long dark lashes. I also think it depends on the horses personality too because their willingness for the rider is what matters to me.

Andalusians all the way!!!! They are super smart, talented, and perfect for Dressage! Thoroughbreds are pretty good too!

I'm a dyed in the wool QH girl, my family has raised them for 50+ years so it's in my blood. I did this year splurge on myself and bought a Hanoverian mare just for me to have some fun with, I've fallen head over heels in love with her. I also enjoy my student's Haflingers a lot, cute little stubborn buggers!
