    Best for what? The answer is going to differ according to what you consider "best".

    I like Scandinavian bred Warmbloods (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Finnish). I loooove Hanoverians though. My favorite horses are usually mixes of these breeds.

    I am at a tie between warmbloods and coldbloods. I love several of the traits exhibited in both types. :)

    In general, I would have to say coldbloods. The Bashkir Curlies are my favorite breed and majority wise they are a cold blooded breed. My gelding is the exact spitting image of that (although, lol he does have his spastic BLAHHHH moments :) ) But, I don't mind having a hotblooded horse. My other horse is a Arab X Bashkir Curly and she can go go go all day. On a scale of one to ten, one being the coldest horse out there she is about a seven or a eight. But, yeah, in general I would have to say coldbloods would win my vote.

    That's kind of a tricky classification because of the Warmblood category. By process of elimination, all ponies and stock horses for example would be considered "warmbloods". And yet we all have a pretty definate term of what Warmbloods actually are. I think in these times, terms like Ponies and Stock Horses definitely have to be added to the range of definition or they're left out.

    Either way, I'm definitely more of a hot blooded person. I prefer the horses with quite a bit of pep and vinegar, ones with good speed and stamina. More directly, I'm hopelessly obsessed with Arabs.

    However, I like them because of what they're good at. If I ever got into jumping, I'd definitely be turning my eye more to the Warmblood category, or possible still a Thoroughbred.

    I'm really interested in some gaming, so I actually bought a 2 year old Paint filly. Haha, she may not be much better at it then my Arab, but I think she's a lot more likely to be (my Arab doesn't have the power on her haunches) so I was happy looking into other breeds.

    It all depends on what my interest is, and it tends to change a lot! I like doing EVERYTHING, I swear!

    I'm a fan of hotbloods, Arabs in particular (I'm not much of a fan of TB's but that's just me). I like them the best when they're like my girl, she's steady when I need her to be but she has no qualms about having a little fun now and then. I also feel that she has the guts to get us out of almost any situation we get into, and get us out safely because she's smart as well as gutsy. I also love how I don't have to mess around with to try to get her to go faster yet she's very responsive to me when I ask her to slow down.

    I do like a good coldblood every now and then however, and I'm sure that most any horse that fully enjoys their work and is well trained can behave in the ways I just described Lacey behaving. =)
