Favorite Breeds!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and its rider.

Definitely quarter horses, paints, appy's, and I had an American Saddlebred/ Tennessee walker/ QH cross I wouldn't mind having one of those again. He was the smoothest and sweetest trail horse I ever owned very beautiful gaits as well.

Quarter Horses

Cross breeds - Morabs, Quarab.

Lots of it depends on the individual horse, too. :)

Andalusians & Lusitanos have been my favorite since I was a little kid. I'm not as big a fan of the stock type breeds, but ironically I ended up buying an Andalusian/QH cross that could easily pass for a purebred QH with an unusually long mane and tail, and I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world

I consulted our local experts (below) that discussed it over lunch, and their answer was Paints, hands (or hooves) down.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

I love all the Baroque breeds. Andalusians are my favorite, by far! I might be slightly biased considering I own a couple :). I do like some Warmbloods such as Oldenburgs and Dutch warmbloods... It really depends on the horse.
