You cannot accurately state that one discipline has more obedient or more well-trained horses than the other.
Well, I know that. But there are still some disciplines that have more overall more obedient horses that others. For example, nobody's going to reply and say barrel racing or TB racing. Those disciplines still have horses that are amazing at what they do, but they aren't generally as obedient as, say, a reiner or a WP horse. I'm not looking for scientific facts and statistics... just opinions based on experiences.
I didn't mean which disciplines have horses that are better at their job. I mean which ones have horses that will do ANYTHING you say at any given time? Ever ridden a polo pony? That's what I mean.
Sorry for not being clear enough.
