I tend to like horses with more attitude. I have a TB now, but I've also ridden a TWH before and he was very attitudy. Basically any horse that I have to work at, not just push a button and go.

I like my horses to be on the hot side. I don't like having to kick all the time. I would much rather have a horse that gives me to much than a horse that I have to prod into doing things.

I like quiet but curious horses.
Not a push button or a school master though. I love horses that will only go or do it if you ask correctly.

i like thoroughbreds and warmbloods, or i love them combined!!! haha my current horse is both :p
i like a horse that you really have to figure out, a stubborn one that you have to understand and make an agreement with, not one you can tell what to do. haha they stretch my patience each time, but they are soo much fun to ride ;)

For riding I like TB's and WB types. But for me what makes a horse is the personality. Overall I'd rather have a "hot" horse than a lazy one. Hate having to kick kick kick. Bigger horses for me, I like 15.3 and up. Though I'm fine on a shorter horse with a large barrel. I'm not super tall, just don't like most ponies and narrow horses.

I own and ride a WB so they're my favorite type of horse. He is very calm yet willing to go forward and sensitive, so he's the best of both worlds! But if I had to pick from the polar opposites I would pick a lazier horse, I would rather have to do extra work to push the horse forward than feel like I could die at any moment.

I like Tennessee Walkers and Arabians...

I prefer them to be obediant... I like a horse who I can gallop, and when we come down to a walk, the horse will walk easily on a loose rein. I don't mind a bucker, and would rather have a horse that bucks than a rearer or a head-tosser. I like competitiveness and reliability.
