Love a paint horse, but not any paint horse!
Must have pacific bloodlines and be bred to do what I love!

But before that, I need to check it's temperament out :P

I am a Quarter Horse and Appaloosa fan. For what I want to do, the horses I have fit the bill perfectly and have great dispositions.

Arabians - they just seem to be really fiery and sensitive. I also like their all-around-ness, and the fact that they are petite and cute, as am I.

I like to see people have different breeds that they tend to like over others and I mostly think I am a pretty rounded rider when it comes to what I like but for some reason I have never been an Arabian lover.

I do have to say though I once showed a beautiful mare in some english and did a little jumping with her and I loved her! She was a quarter horse - arabian cross but you would have never quessed it she was built like a quarter horse and no where on her said arabian, only when she got excited did the arabian come out and then her head would thin out and her nostrils would get big and she would hold that tail up :)

My favorite breed has changed in the 30 years I have been riding and owning horses.
According to what I wanted to do, and now, what I am physically able to do.
I loved my old time Morgan horses, for 15 years, because we literally did everything with them. My daughter showed 4H and we rode on a drill team, I used to do team penning, jump, reining, trail class, trail riding, anything. We lived in Ocala Fl. at the time and there was always new stuff to try out.
Now we just trail ride and I have R.A.. so I ride gaited, I have a TWH, A KMSH. Anything smooth. LOL Susan

I'm a big fan of big stocky horses. I gotta love my Quarter Horses!:) I love riding in my drill team with speedy catch-ips, hard stops and turns, and my QH's have always performed for me. Then a week later, take them to a show and enter every class, and place:) However, I'm a fan of almost any breed of horse, since I like to try different things. I have always wanted a Mustang for an endurance horse, and maybe cowboy mounted shooting and reining. Then, I'd like to have a gaited horse for trail riding and such!! I also love Arabians..most QH people don't. They are so delicate looking and beautiful, and I love their fiesty attitude! Then, I also like Appaloosa's, just for the spots and the broomtails XD Okay, so I like everything XD

I love them all, but my fav's are:
Arabian: because they are stunning, full of zip and vinegar, smart as a whip great all round horses and loyal to a fault.
Friesian: stunning, eager to please, (thats about all I know of the breed lol, I never interacted with one.)
