They share part of the same heritage, I believe he has Crow and Ute Indian bloodlines among others.

My favorite breed is definitely the arabian, I fell in love with them as a little girl looking through my mom's old, old, olddd arabian horse times magazines. I love that they are SO versatile, you can find arabians winning in western pleasure, dressage, saddleseat, hunter/jumper, and more.. and of course they are one of the best endurance horses IMO :) I also love the look of the arabian, with their pretty dished faces. I have a great bond with my arabian and really appreciate that he is like a little energizer bunny.. he can keep going, and going, and going!
I also LOVE friesians and any warmbloods, but especially the hanoverian.. they're both so elegant and have such gorgeous movement. And thoroughbreds are another favorite, I would love to have one someday for showjumping.

I love arabs and their brains & personality! My arab is/was the easiest thing ever to train. We have a bond like no other! Even Patrick Swayze loved & showed arabs ;)

I am learning to love sport horses... Not only for the beauty and athletic ability... But now that I am able to work with a few TB/TB crosses/WBs I am realizing their ability to learn and give you their hearts!:

I LOVE Friesians! I also love Holsteiners.

Reasons for Holsteiners- The do very well in dressage for one! Another would be that they are a little bigger boned. I don't care for the comformation of TBs.

Friesians- I love their comformation (i.e. Bigger boned- as mentioned above, I don't care for dainty comformations. No offence TB and Arabian lovers!) I love their mane/tail/forelocks! Their personalities are sweet, too! But the reason I really fell in love with the Friesian is because of their expresive, powerfully elegant gaits. I plan to breed and train Friesians for dressage when I'm older.

Friesians are my number one, Holsteiners are my second I suppose. I also love paints for their colors/markings.

My favorite breed is the American Paint horse. I own 3 and show one. The one I show I trained so he is special to me. I love how you can have a solid color horse and also you can have painted one. Also with the painted ones I love how no two paints are alike.

My second favorite breed is the POA. I have a POA (my first horse) and we do everything! We have competed in gaming, WP, HUS, Jumping, dressage and showmanship. Her calling is Gaming. Anyways, I love how POA are different. I like color!!

My favorite breed is the arabian. Although I pretty much love any nice tempered horse, I just always come back to that something "special" about arabs that just seems to draw me to them. They can be tricky for a person that doesn't understand them, but if you are sensitive to their needs, they are bonded to you for life. For me, having that special bond is the best thing in the world. They also excel at endurance, which is my dream to compete in. Plus, it doesn't hurt that they are absolutely gorgeous, and they are the perfect size for me, as I am under 5'4" tall. I love the look of many different breeds for many reasons, but for me, the arab just always comes in #1 for beauty and temperment.

TBs have won me over! =). The bond, with time, becomes so strong and they will try for anything when you ask.

I think I'd like to add one I just discovered tonight, while I was bored at work:

- Cleveland Bay

These are a very nifty breed. I've been trying to find breeds similar to the Irish Draught (size, heft, disposition) and this one comes close. And even though they're a rare breed, they seem to be priced within reach.
