I agree! My farrier is a rough cowboy type who owns Paints and he always gives me a hard time about my "big **** overgrown pony". He shoes racehorses so I can kind of understand why he thinks they're all batty, but still. He doesn't think they can do anything but run fast and turn left.

I don't even tell people what breed Vic is anymore because horse people around here are immediately turned off by the word "Thoroughbred". Now I tell people he's just a brown riding horse.

Ive NEVER cared for TBs but I moved my horse to a stable that has a OTTB and I LOVE them now. He is so sweet and willing (one vice he has is he cant have clippers near him, he will strike out) but I have to say if they were gaited I would own one in a heartbeat. Just commenting they are a lot nicer and better than i always thought. I can definantly see what the hype is on them

We actually have three TB's-see Sarah, Tess, and Matthew on my "horses" page. Sarah is 3/4 thoroughbred, 1/4 holsteiner, but totally looks and acts like a throughbred. Tess is a retired racehorse. Matt is missing an eye. All three are so sweet and just like giant puppies on the ground, although they used to/are difficult when being ridden! (Matt and Tess are retired)

I absolutely love them! Most of the horses I have ridden are TB's. The place where I am boarding at consists mainly of TB's, besides for a handful that aren't.

Night Heat (my amazing and crazy mare) is a TB, and as meantioned before, they are so honest and will try anything for you, even if they are slightly fazed about something.

I love my TBs. I have 3 of them, all with their own personalities. Rowdy is my big boy, tall dark and handsome. We have a love/ hate relationship. I love him he hates me, but only if I pay more attention to someone else! LOL. Jaffa is like a big puppy dog but he has a sore back atm and gives me grump ears whenever I pretend to touch his back. Jazzy is a sweet three year old that I call my love junky, I though that I might have lost her not too long ago when she was showing late stage signs of bracken poisoning but I am hoping that it wasn't that, as she seems to be improving now.
