I see a fair number of quarter horses. I know they are very popular. I don't mean to offend anyone but there is a fair portion of the ones I see that are very poorly behaved. Big bodies, tiny feet and snotty attitude seems to sum up a portion of the breed. Which is weird because everyone recommends them as a beginner horse. I also don't live in ranching country. A lot of the horses are pleasure horses in the purest sense of the word.
So, my question is do people in the quarter horse world feel that there has been a trade off with personalty and health with the rise in popularity of the breed? I know in the dog world they say the scourge of any breed is popularity because they are bred without thought and only to turn a buck. I was wondering if people in the quarter horse world feel this way. Or am I just seeing a lot of spoiled horses? So, is it poor breeding or poor beginner horse behavior?
