I have -never- heard of anyone using a shock collar. Are you sure it wasn't a cribbing collar?
Some people joke that warmbloods are "dumb-bloods" because they generally have a lazier nature.
I find warmbloods can kind of be separated into two categories: amateur friendly, and pro quality. The ammy friendly mounts are bred to be "yes ma'am" horses, whereas pro horses have that "fire" that gives them the drive to compete at a higher level; generally these horses are hitter to handle and ride.
Again, this is a generalization.
I've worked with and have owned (and currently own) warmbloods since I started riding.
You will find every type of personality, just as with any other breed. Some are lazy, some are hot, some love to work, others tell you to piss off. I love warmbloods as they're bred for my chosen disciplines.
The first WB I ever owned was ruined by his former owner/trainer and his mind was blown. He did teach me how to sit a buck. My current filly is brave, willing, trusting, and oh so sweet. She has a very trainable mind.
I've ridden and worked with the whole gamut, from sporty and light to those who preferred to sleep.
My heart horse was a WB. He was amazing - jumped the moon, had a lovely extended trot, was light and responsive.. I preferred to ride him with just a halter. He was truly an amazing horse.
