What's YOUR favorite breed?

What your favorite breed of horse?

Really, mine are all breeds, but I have a sweet spot for Arabians, Welsh Ponies, Connemara, Quarter Horse, and that's all I can think of at the moment. :P

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within. Douglas MacArthur

Arabians, by far.
Truly the most sensitive and intelligent animals I have ever come across. :)

I really have two favorite breeds; the Tennessee Walking Horse and the Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse. The Tennessee Walker or Tennessee Walking Horse is a gentle and comfortable riding horse. The Tennessee Walking Horse has a reputation for having a very good disposition. The Tennessee Walker originated from the Narragansett Pacer and the Canadian Pacer. The Tennessee Walking Horse is the official state horse of the U.S. State of Tennessee. The Tennessee Walker is used for horse show events, particularly under saddle seat style English riding equiptment, but is also a very popular trail riding horse, both in western riding equiptment as well as english. Tennessee Walking Horses are known for their ambling gaits: the running walk, the flat walk, and for their gentle, "rocking horse" canter. During the late 1940s and early 1950s, when Walking Horses enjoyed a surge of widespread popularity with the general public, exaggerated front leg action, especially at the running walk, drew spectators to horse shows and helped further increase the popularity of the breed. There are two common action devices that are permitted on the show grounds, and are used for training and show to enhance the horse's gait. Soring is an abusive practice that is associated in part with the production of a "big lick" Walker. My other favorite breed is the Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse. The Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse is a gaited breed of horse developed in eastern Kentucky. The Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse should be of medium bone and substance, as well as being athletic and refined. The breed standard for the Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse is: After observation by two examiners a horse registering to be part of the KMSHA or SMHA must present a calm temperament along with a willing disposition. These saddle horses were originally bred by the mountain people of the hills and valleys of eastern Kentucky for the demanding needs of farm life. The Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse has been developed as an all-around utility horse, used mainly for riding.
