My favorite breed is probably a paint. I love paints because of their fun personalities, easy-going nature, and teachability! (don't know if that's a word) Well, this girl's name is Tinkerbelle (she is my sister with disabilities' horse) and she is so cute! She is an 8 year old, going around 2' courses. She is finishing up her lead change training. She is TOO CUTE!!
Also I have an 8 y/o gelding named Sam...he is not really my favorite breed though because he is mixed between three! (1/2 dartmoor pony, 1/4 holsteiner, 1/4 thoroughbred). He is really sweet. This is me and him showing 2' a couple months ago.
Rockies are intelligent, hard-working, brave, curious, friendly, playful, and versatile.
They are gaited (though mine was not, oddly) and excell at trail riding and endurance. They have excellent stamina and are built to be very hardy and work their hardest.
They are popular for chocolate palomino/silver dapple colour, which is a brown, dappled coat with flaxen mane and tail. It ranges from lighter brown horses with almost matching manes to black coats and white manes. Different variations of chocolate palomino are very common within the breed, but they also come in most other colours.
Their gait is a very smooth, four-beat rack. Here is a video of a Rocky Mountain Horse gaiting:
