What breed(s) of horse(s) do you like the most? Whether for looks, temperment, or just because, what kind(s) do you like best?
post pics of them! if you've had experience with them, say so. if you haven't, say so,too.
I like Morgans. I have had experience with them. They have good temperament, nice looks, and calm with the right ammount of spirit right where you want it. Of course, there are some that defy those and come out nasty, but that rare. They hold their tail up and to the side, and can be gaited or un-gaited, and can be trail horses to dressage horses.

arabians...no contest. I love their spirit and personality. My gelding has so much personality, its never a dull moment with him. I've tried a few other breeds and while I enjoyed them, I was always pulled back to arabians. Rocky is polish arab, which is my favorite type. They're a little stockier than other arab types. I love arabians because they're so versatile. With Rocky, I can do dressage one day, take him out on the trail another day, and then go back to the arena and jump.

I am going to say
1)Paints Even though every single paint I have worked with/ridden has been a little nuts
2)QH the only reason they get 2 is because they don't have the color of the paint or they would be 1 also!
3)Gypsy vanners, they are so majestic!

I love Mustangs. I own 2 and they are very versatile little horses. Their appearance takes some getting used to and you can't judge them as "pretty" like you could a different breed but they are solid using horses. Once you earn their trust, they will do anything for you but they aren't pushovers like a lot of QH are. They are really durable and are up for hard work day after day.

Appaloosa's are by far my favorite, I am partial to them because i had a mare for many years who lived to be in her mid 30's. She was everything to me and would do anything you wanted her to do. Amazing horse.

I love "western" horses. (notice the quotes lol) Appy's and Paints and anything colorful (Paints, Duns, Buckskins). I love color!

I also love QH's and Morgans. My first horse was a Morgan/QH. She was splendid :)

I would have to say
1. Haffies because i have 3 and they have such loving personalities. I can drive and ride and show draft but they aren't as tall, which is nice for short little me! : D Plus my guys have given me a great expereince! Yes stubborn at times but very quick learners and Daisey, my mare, is so forgiving with me, espeically with riding because i know at times i have to be doing things wrong but she sticks through it and knows i'm learning : D <33

Heres my girl! ^
2. Percherons. They are big black (or dapple grey my fav.) beauties and love love love them. I get to show them this year! I'm confident to move up to big drafties : ] they are pretty sweet and they've always appealed to me lol

I have to say connemara's because I love their build and their temperament.
And then I love the grace and presence of a classicly trained warmblood.

Well, I work around Arabians all day so I'm naturally drawn to them. Their fire, their tail carriage, their endurance, their warm hearts... - everything - makes them a great horse.

A few pics of some of our horses.

for me its gotta be Connemara at #1, because whiskey is one and I've learned so much with her, out of all the horses I've rode, whiskey has proven to be the most willing and brave.

I would imagine there are alot of breeds I would love! Arabian for example.

But the one I love the most is the Paint! Overo preferably! You get all the great qualities of the QH, but w/ color! There's so much variety in the breed it's easy to find one that suits you. I like a horse that's generally up for anything, great temperment on the trail, and alot of GO!

There are other breeds I think are really pretty, but I can't imagine them being anymore suited for me then what I have!
(ok, minimally marked, but she's the best)

My two absolute favorites are

Thoroughbreds and Irish Sport Horses. I also love 3/4 TB and 1/4 Drafts.

I adore any horse that has heart, soul, boldness, legs up to here, big, thick and can run a CC course easy peasy.

This is a hard one for me! I learned how to ride on Arabians. They are beautiful and sensitive and some of the greatest horses I have been exposed to have been Arabians or Arabian crosses.

My first horse (who I still have) is a Quarter Horse. He is amazing. Jack is by far the most reliable horse ever. So there is a vote for Quarter Horses.

I LOVE Thoroughbreds, especially the good old fashioned American bred Thoroughbreds. In my opinion they are GREAT competition horses.

I also love Saddlebreds, and Morgans, and National Show Horses. I had a Percheron/Thoroughbred filly who was TO DIE FOR.

Ok... maybe I just should not vote. Cause clearly I cannot make a decision. Horses are great in general, each one has their own personality and their own set of talents.

It's a tough choice between Quarter Horses and Morgans. I love both breeds so much! Probably leaning more towards the Morgan though. The old style ones, though, not the new scrawny looking ones LOL (they're pretty and all, but not what a Morgan should look like IMO). We have an old style looking Morgan mare, and I love the way she looks (minus the fact shes overweight and undermuscled! LOL) I like the nice, 'sturdy' look.




I think QHs and Morgans are such versatile breeds (as I know others are but have seen it the most with these breeds) and there is nothing I love more than a horse that has potential to do anything and everything!

I LOVE the look of Arabians but have never gotten the pleasure of working with or riding one. Hopefully someday I will :)
