I have some "ideals" for both the Thoroughbred and the Quarter horse (the breeds I am most familiar with).

These ideals have physical features that make them long lived for the job at hand and the brains and attitude to "git 'er done!" I want a Thoroughbred that can run fast but is physically substantive enough to do the other jobs they do well such as Eventing and Grand Prix jumping.. Dressage is in there too.

Quarter horses need to look like they can run very fast for that quarter mile or herd and work cattle.

Both these horses need good minds and good bodies.

Good luck finding that good horse. They are out there. I got one years ago for $1500 as a two year old... darn near perfect.

There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man. ~Winston Churchill

Here is Nbbles picture on her second birthday. I am just going to use her for trail riding, but she's calm and sweet. She has pretty good confirmation.

My filly will likely do some 25 mile endurance rides, hard mountain riding and hopefully chase some cows. She loves herding the dog lol

I believe she will have the means to do that too with all the motor in the rear XD

I really didn't care about her bloodlines - I was just looking for a horse that would be a good trail horse - Nice calm temperament and good enough conformation to stay sound
