Love Just shameless, The Awestriker lines, Can I be biased!!.. Those are my colts lines!

Love a good performance bred horse (halter and ride), me.. At the moment I'm doing nothing (pregnant) but once my colt's broken in he'll be western pleasure trained and do a bit of everything, dressage, jumping, HUS etc :)

Thoroughbreds They're spectacular athletes & smart too. I'd still choose different breeds for different purposes; I'm looking for an Appy X for my kids to ride, but I'll always love TBs the most. I was never a big fan of Quarterhorses, but my Appendix gelding's really grown on me...

In no particular order:

- Cleveland Bay
- Irish Draught
- Shire
- Hanoverian

Top Three: I prefer the 'heavy hunter' type of horse, with good bone and calm temperaments that are suited to do many things/disciplines. Show ring, on the trails, driving, foxhunting ...

Bottom one: Just because so many tend to be pretty movers. (I do ride hunter equitation, afterall )

Walkers and Arabians! The walkers are some of the biggest sweethearts I have ever met, and the Arabians, I love their spunk. My dream horse is an Akhal-Teke. Haha.

One of my favorite breeds is the Standardbred. I worked with Standardbred trotters for years and I fell in love with how honest the breed is. They are kind, gentle, forgiving... they're just wonderful horses.

My other breed of choice is the Quarter Horse. More often than not, the horses I rode were Quarter Horse and I got very used to their gaits and temperament. I'm comfortable with them, I know them, and I recently bought one of my very own.

I like mustangs, because they're bred by nature, not by man.

I like Quarter Horses and the QH based breeds such as Paints, etc because they are so versatile...it seems that many QH's can go WP one day, the next do well hunter/jumper, and then get around the poles and barrels at a play day the next day. There have even been a few Grand Prix dressage horses that were QH's...although that is really rare.

My second favorite are Morgans.... I think they are so beautiful, graceful and yet strong :)

I love my Standies! Haha, they're such versatile horses and they're very underrated imo.. But other than that, I have a soft spot for drafts and stocky horses :) and ponies/small horses that look like miniature drafts.

Quarter Horses, Mustangs, and Draft horses are my favorite.

Oops, accidentally pressed Quick Reply, haha.

Quarter Horses - Because I love stocky horses. Quarter Horses can do just about anything. I do barrels, poles, and just ranch work. I love their calm personality.

Mustangs - I ove their personality and just all that they stand for. I love their freedom and spirit.

Draft horses - That's easy. I love big bulky horses.
