    Troll....troll....troll........

    I event/dressage/jump. I have had quite a few QH's do very well in all of these disciplines. You, obviously, do not ride much or with an open mind.

    Approaching 60 mph most quarter mile QH can do around 55 who knows how fast I have been going down hill.

    Ride every horse I can, especially the ones that are said to be unrideable. Have rode at the least a hundred QHs have a mare that is half poco bueno half saddle bred the QH stallion she is out of is a aa champion gut beater from hell have rode him at least 300 miles.

    Oh I have no idea why on earth I'd want my QH...... lets see, she's doing extremely well in Dressage, is as un-spooky as it gets, thinks small, wiggly kiddos are great fun to pack around and is one heck of an easy-keeper.

    Yup, one terrible horse there!

    Oh and as far as being a "gut beater", my trainer hopped on my QH and after riding for a few minutes came over and said well no wonder you can't sit the trot on my Warmblood, if I didn't know better I'd swear this horse was gaited.

    Ignorant troll is ignorant!

    My paint is an amazing dressage and hunter aaaand jumper horse, we've shown up very many fancy smanchy thoroughbreds and FYI his confirmation is amazing... very smooth... no way you can get a bumpy ride on him .. he's more comfy bareback then anything!

    Just.. my few cents...

    never said they were terrible, just think their are better breeds for some people, just seems like everyone thinks quarter horses are the only breed on the planet.

    So tell me what breed I need. I like to trail ride. I prefer the stride of a taller horse and I want a horse that is willing to blaze a trail and than take me to a play day to run a barrel pattern and zip me though the four in line. I don't care to ride the gaited breeds and I personally prefer not to ride an Arab. So what breed is suited to me?

    Seems that most of those riding are riding their breed of choice. Why would they not be? I can go anywhere and spend my money on a horse so why would I buy one that didn't suit me. As for my paint, his sire was a registered Quarter horse by the name of Dee Bar Windson. So I am riding a quarter horse with spots....
