I generally look more at the individual animal than the discipline... BUT if I had to pickI think pleasure horses (english, hunter, and western pleasure horses) and reiners are the more completely obedient types. They are generally more cool headed and calm and have to give to a riders slightest cue without hesitation. The only reason I do not put dressage horses up there is they are generally hotter horses, though are trained to be just as obedient. These horses are judged based on that willingness and obedience.
Any event where there is speed involved(racing, barrel racing, cross country ect) the horse is more hot natured and more prone to being free willed and such, generally when you add speed horses tend to lose a little of their discipline and absolute obedience.
