I have nothing against any breed...I like them all. I am partial to Paints because they have worked well (or perhaps we've had good luck and/or breeding) for us. All our Paint mares have good dispositions, low maintenance/easy keepers, sure footed, and great on anything from the trail to the road in traffic (and they're pretty, too). For the type of pleasure riding we do, having a horse that you can reliably just saddle up and go on a minute's notice works perfectly for us. I imagine other breeds could work just as well.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
