All Breed Parade
I've trained and worked with a lot of different breeds. Some are super easy, some are not. Let's go down a brief list of a few of my experiences, then I'm turning it loose to you guys.
I broke a 3 yr old Arabian mare who was as mean as snot on the ground, but under saddle she was one of the easiest.
Haflingers, EASY and Mellow.
A Quarter pony who was stubborn and lazy.
An appaloosa, smart, but rambunctious.
A Paint Mare, she was a dream!
A POA, Stubborn, but smart as a whip!!!!
Quarter horses, too smart, they take a bit of figuring only because each one is different. Good solid horse though.
Thoroughbreds, melodramatic but willing.
A Belgian which was a huge scardey cat!!
A Mustang Filly, smart, but skittish at first, she caught on quick and was a great riding horse.
OK, so there is just a couple of different breeds I've trained and a short blurb about each of them. Now thasts's not all horses in the same breed category, just a couple of the ones that I've worked with. And that really doesn't even begin to scratch the surface, but you get the idea. So what is your experience with different breeds and which one is your favorite????
