Mine now is a pretty easy going fella, great ammy horse and was excellent as a training project up to the I1 but he needs to go teach someone else! I'm on the trail of some great horses, need something with a GP potential so anything that's prone to random outbursts is top of the list :P
They're the most fun just broke ahahaha. I have one 2 year old on the radar who would be a fun project :P
But yeah, different strokes for different folks. I'm a warmbloods person. If the horse bolts, you hold on and don't let go. Some craziness is par for the course!

Anebel, if the number one qualifier is "prone to random outbursts" you're welcome to borrow Brock
Although I'm not saying anything about GP talents...or the warmblood pedigree lol. But I can guarantee you he's 100% nuts!
I remember once having a disagreement with my OH (who has worked extensively in TB racing as well as spent a few years preparing warmblood performance horses) over whether racing TBs or performing WBs are more unpredictable. He swore that racing TBs were, but I said that they weren't because you could generally expect them to be nuts, and for the most part their nuttiness involved going as forward and fast as possible. So that is not unpredictable in my books. WBs on the other hand, I argued, you never knew what they were going to throw at you next. You're walking along on or leading a WB, dum-di-da-di-dum-di-da-di-MASSIVE-BUCK-REAR-LEAP-THREE-FEET-IN-THE-AIR-di-dum-di-da-di-dum... Now that's what I consider unpredictable
Both have their place and their merits. I find WBs visually very beautiful and I like their extra bone (although my overall personal preference is Baroque horses). I guess I just prefer TBs because I like to be prepared and have my toothbrush and clean underwear packed for a trip to ER
