I would love to have a good looking, flashy, sparkly trail horse, but that usually doesn't happen around here. When it comes down to it, I would rather have an ugly grade horse with a bull head that is an amazingly tempered horse than a "pretty" one who has the IQ and respect of a fly.
BUUUTTT, my horses don't look totally unfortunate on trails. I do color coordinate my babies, and I give them a nice brush down before we head out, but honestly? It is a trail, not a halter show. lol.
