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.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

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.

When I was little My dream horse/pony was a Haflinger. I remember dreaming at night about me haveing one, and not to long after I got my childhood dream horse/pony a haflinger named Dolly<3
Now my dream horse is a Friesian, Maybe one day Ill get one :)

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

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.

The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears. ~Arabian Proverb

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!

Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"
