    My least favorite would have to be Arabian. I like all breeds of horses and if I had to choose for me it would not be an arabian. It could be because in this area there are very few arabian. I am just not a big fan on their build.

    I may get a hiding from some of you guys, but thoroughbred's by far are my least favourite breed. *hides head*

    I don't like Arabians. Mainly because of their conformation. I don't like the concave profile in some either, and it also doesn't help that most Arabians I've met were ditzy and nuts.

    I don't mind Arab crosses, also long as they don't have that strange, dished face. Just looks weird on a horse. Oo

    I HATE standardbreds and any other gaited breed out there! ( I DO own one.. but he's a companion now....too old, has heaves,, CANNOT stand his movement.)

    Standardbred... all they do is waddle its the UGLIEST thing ever!..


    Also I do not like paints and appys

    What's your LEAST favorite breed and why?

    I would have to say the TWH, and forgive me please, TWH fans, but at a walk, it feels like you'r riding a camel! Plus, and this is my experience only, you can't ride with horses outside of gated horses, because the speed is too different at every gait.

    Least favorite breed and why

    Many people don't like Arabs and I'll admit they are not for everyone, but my Arab was the toughest horse I've ever had. Never took a lame step after many, many miles of long, hard riding (endurance and competive trail). He was like riding a freight train! Never ran out of steam, but again, Arabs are not for the faint of heart! I now have a Quarter Horse, however! Not up to the spooks anymore--too old!

    I have a 2 ( will be 3 in july) TWH. I got him for my husband , This horse was a wild horse meaning never been touched more then a handful of times. He ran with other horses. The first time he had a rope around his neck was this past sept. He was scared he backed up and tried to get away for about 5mins. After that he walked up to me and my husband and was fine. He is one of the most laid back horse I've ever been around . Like I said we got him in sept and are having him wintered and had him green broke (very little training ) my husband has only rode a horse three times in his life and was on that horses back in nov . With no problems. ( I would have never let him on that horse if I wasn't sure he was going to be just fine)I guess it all in what people think but I love this horse I've never heard of them putting weight on those poor horses feet I think that is awful just awful . I also have a 8 month old paint colt. Love him too:)

    I disagree with whoever said that they don't like standardbreds, I used to take care of a friends standardbred (off the track), he was lovely. They make great riding companions, and are beautiful. He was best friends with my Haflinger mare. Anyway that is just my opinion. I also like TWH, my friend owns 2. They are great horses. I just dislike what humans do to them. My friend just uses hers for trail riding and does nothing inhumane to them. I'd have to say that my least favorite breed is the Saddlebred. I think they look anorexic and are not good looking. I have never met a sane one in my entire life.

    I love all breeds if everybody liked the same thing it would be a boring world and I would never want to offend someone.And those walking horses can't help what humans put on their feet.my mom has a walking horse and he is really a nice easy going horse really fits my moms personatily which I think is very inportant when chosing a horse
