Of course, Arabian since it has all the qualities which a horse should have. It is unique and cherished in its purity. Abtenauer is the other breed which I can add to my list.

My favorite breeds of horses would have to be Thoroughbreds, Friesians, and any of the heavy draft breeds. For my first horse, I'm hoping to get an Off-Track Thoroughbred; I just love the breed's courage and boldness and heart that strives to please.

And as far as the reasoning behind Friesians and drafts, I have an obsession with anything England related, and I love studying the medieval periods. Just the thought that those amazing horses once rode into battle with a knight literally covered in armor is just awesome. I also love how elegant and regal they appear to be.

Morgans, only the old types not the new types. They are the first American breed and are ver versatile in my mind. Carriage, English or western nothing short of a really heavy load seems to stop them. The ones I've owned have been curious about what a person is doing and loves to please.

I second this.

Well for me it depends if you are talking about looks or personality for looks I like friesians and any buckskin horse, I don't have to much work with personality but I think probably quarter horse or Arabian

Quarter Horses & Paints are my top 2. If I had unlimited resources I'd have at least one of every breed because there is beauty in them all.

Arabians, hands down. I love their "china horse" appearance, while they are extremely versatile and hardy. I also think that they are the most intelligent breed I have ever worked with. Their affection is absolutely amazing, and they don't hesitate telling you off if you haven't been spending enough time with them!

Ooh, goody, another opportunity for me to gush about paints I adore them!! I love how sweet and calm they generally are (from the ones I've known), and I just think they are gorgeous in any combination of markings. Speaking of paint markings, I think pinto(?) Gypsy Vanners are incredibly beautiful.

With all due respect, Morgans are not the "first American breed". The Nez Perce already had well established Appy breeding herds by 1750. Figure, from whom the Morgan breed eventually sprung, wasn't even born until 1789.

They are, however, one of the early American breeds, and were developed to be versatile as a combination work/pleasure horse...

Quarter horses. I love the true versatility. If I were really rich I'd have a Dutch Warmblood for sure though =)
