As a kid I read every black stallion book there was. So of course my 1st dream horse was a black arab. I also loved reading about Man O' War & Secretariat. I think that is why I love red horses. Our family's 1st horse was a quarter horse, and I fell in love with the breed. My dream horse now would be a big sorrel quarterhorse gelding. Neither horse I own fits that description, but a girl can dream.

Arabians(Thanks to The Black Stallion Series.) & Mustangs(they aren't really a breed, more like a mix of breeds.lol) and Kigers(Thanks to Spirit:Stallion of the Cimmaron.)

These breeds are still my fave.

My childhood dream was any palomino horse. I LOVED them and still do. My dream breed was an Andalusian though for obvious reasons lol. I always wanted to ride Haute Ecole

Of my earliest memories I was totally in love with any and all breeds and even Grades. To this day I still love them all. I also read every one of Walter Farley's "Black Stallion" books. Oh and there was also "Flicka" by Maureen O'Hara.

Growing up it wasn't so much a breed preference, but I always wanted the dapple grey that Clint Eastwood rode in Pale Rider, so I guess it would have been Appy's

Everyone should own a haflinger those little horses (they are NOT ponies) are the neatest and nicest little horses i've seen

Arabians and TBs. I loved watching the races as a kid. The first horse I ever fell in love with was a grey arabian gelding. I was 12 and that became my dream horse. Specifically, I love the dark and rose greys. Then, last year I met a man who breeds Egyptians (he's friends with a woman at my barn) and he offered this colt to another woman at the barn (this was at a horse show). This woman told me about it jokingly because she had no interest in this horse. I asked what color and she said grey. I think I was instantly in love with a horse I'd never seen. He was not even 2, a stud colt, relatively unhandled, and had spent almost his entire life in a pasture. He didn't even have a permanent stall. He shared with another stud colt when they came in at night. I told the breeder's friend that I would be very interested in looking at him. She arranged it, I looked at him 2 weeks later, and he was at my barn on my daughter's birthday 3 days later. Definitely a dream come true for me. He's been an amazing horse and has made a complete 180 from when he first arrived as a wild, unkempt tangled mess. He even had matts on his belly from shedding out, but not getting it brushed off. He's my baby now.

I've always loved Morgans. I also have always wanted a mini, a Gypsy, and an Eriskay Pony.

My favorite is and always will be the American Quarter Horse. BUT... I have this drawing that I did back when I was in middle school and on the back I wrote "My favorite horse will be a pure black thouroughbred arabian stallion named Fury" Now, I'm assuming that I thought thoroughbred meant pure bred....

You know what the funny thing is? Riley's father is a black QH named Fury!
