Appaloosa's your opinion
 
ok simple question do you think appys are good horse or bad and with either answer list a reason why you do or dont like them

Zeke 08-03-2010 10:24 PM

I would have to say appys are like any other breed. I've seen some really nice ones who are bred well and some horrible poorly bred ones too.

They aren't my personal preferance because I've known some VERY snotty ones with crappy temperments. I'm also not a fan of half the patterns they come in which is totally vain but true haha

I grew up around some that were a bit pig headed, but a a whole I like them as a western mount. Very sturdy breed.

I have owned two appaloosa's who were awesome...I have been riding for aprox 40 years.... they are a tough breed and very brave, but as with most everything, you will find good and bad in every breed...

I DONT LIKE THEM! lol I have only ever had bad experiences on them, I have found them to be really spooky, pushy and dumb! But that just my experience, I am sure with more time spent or finding a good one they are amazing horses.

i dont think being appy makes them into a bad horse i just dont really like the color patterns other then the blanket on there rump and the rest of them is solid or a lepard appy.

This being said... I know its just a color, and I have just had bad luck on the ones I have been on thus. How ever its all up to personal preference, I prefer on the be on appys LOL

My appy is an absolute angel! He was successful in competing in a state-wide level, a good therapeutic horse, unflappable trail mount, rides in parades, and helps out riders like me trying to relearn and gain confidence. He has good hooves and a mane and tail--things that can be hard to come by with the appaloosa breed. His amazing coat patterns are just the frosting on the cake.

With my experience with Kubie, I don't know if I will ever have another breed of horse--he is one of the best horse I have ever met!

I love Appaloosas. I have had experience with Appaloosas for over 30 years. I have bred, owned and shown them for 16 years, and I really enjoy them. I currently own 10 Appaloosas. I like the variety of types in the breed. I like almost all of the color patterns. I like the general intelligence, durability, trainability and easy keeping attributes which I have found most Appaloosas to have.

I am not fond of their look, I've never been around them much, so I can't say much about personality ;)

I like the color patterns, but I think alot of them have ugly heads & really sparse manes & tails. But, I'm an arab person so I'm totally biased :p
