~ Hotbloods, Coldbloods or Warmbloods?
I am interested in hearing your opinion on which type of horse you think is best out of these categories:
- The hotbloods, like Thoroughbreds and Arabians?
- The coldbloods, like Shires and Haflingers?
- The warmbloods, like Hanoverians and Trakehners?
And then choose any breed within those that you prefer or like.
It will be nice to see all of your opinions. Thanks. :-)
- Schwarzwälder Kaltblut
Schwarzwälder Kaltblut are my number one favourite.
Comtois are my second favouties to Kaltblut's.
My favourite mix is Volcan's breed, 50% Gypsy Vanner, 25% Thoroughbred and 25% New Forest. He's counted as a Warmblood since Vanners are Coldbloods and TB's are Hotlboods.
I think everyone has a breed that has eye appeal for them. However, I think the biggest factor in breed choice is what you want to do with the horse. Then you look at breeds that are best suited to those activities. Earlier in my life when riding for hours and cantering miles on end were the "it" for me, my TWH/QH mare filled the bill. In my life right now I want a brief W/T now and then but also want some help moving limbs and firewood. While I do enjoy looking at the Arabians, Andalusians and such, I want a slow and steady worker and that's my Percheron/Belgian gelding.
Mine is the warmbloods.
My personal favorite breed is the Holsteiner, because my interest is in show jumping, and they can be some of the best show jumpers.
I don't know because my horse is an Irish Sport Horse which is really 3/4 TB and 1/4 Draft so like I don't really know lol
C'mon The THoroughbreds:D
I'm A Bit Biased Lol!
But yes like Lauren I do love hotbloods like thoroughbreds cos I grew up with them my whole life
