Ive heard of the TB's being hot blooded, same with the Arabs....never heard the Paint one though, I think I've heard of quite a few people telling me that Paint's are mean and nasty though, have heard of the Appy ones countless of times....same with the Drafts though!

Thanks for all of these!

Everyone knows that Thoroughbreds are psychotic hard keepers that have terrible feet and go lame all the time.

Arabs - Stupid, spooky, hotblooded, fast... all the commons :p
Apps - Rat tails, stubborn, slow.
Warmbloods - the only horse that can jump
QHs - dead broke from birth.
TBs - thinskinned, hard kept (I actually think those have some truth,) spindly, hot
Drafts - er... loafy. :p

For me as a Standardbred owner, I have heard a great deal of stereotypes!

- All have big ugly heads and long dis-proportioned bodies.
- All pace under saddle and can't trot properly - even "trotters"
- Impossible to canter
- Not good for riding at all
- Can't jump
- Only good for racing
- Poor man's Thoroughbred (ironic given the need to differentiate each breed by horse people, but they do go cheaply here in NZ.)

Obviously fellow SB owners will disagree with a lot above. All breeds have their limitations just in different ways! Though I have to admit they are commonly becoming associated with the words "versatile" "good tempered" and "easy to train" of late... which is nice in amongst the other stereotypes.

I've owned several Standardbreds from 14.2hh to 16.1hh, all had different shapes and sizes and I have been asked without seeing their brands if they're different breeds, but I'm quick to proudly say no and say they're a Standardbred :)

This thread is really interesting, will be checking it a few times I think!

Arabs/TB's are spooky, hotheaded, and only for VERY experienced riders.

Latvian Warmbloods, draft type - ok, this is a local thing, but this breed is the most popular around here, however, there is a type of riders who whine all the time how other breeds, especially, other European Warmblood breeds, are waaaay cooler and more suitable for sport, thus LWdt and Latvian Harness horses are said to be dull, slow, without any energy, stubborn, suitable just for plowing and hobby riding, blocky and big headed.

What a load of BC!
