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!
