My friend E.T. ‘s mother called me Saturday and said she bought a new horse. A gray Arab. Mrs. E.T. had back surgery not too long ago. She said she cant ride her obese Palomino because…..Im not exactly sure why. I don’t think she ever gave me a reason.
She offered to let me ride her gelding (the Palomino) whenever I wanted. I will probably take her up on the offer.
The Palomino is a nice tempered and well broke horse.
Mrs. E.T. now thinks Arabians are the best breed of horses to walk the earth. She used to say this about Quarter Horses too.
I like Arabians. I think they are gorgeous horses. ( I like all horse breeds to be truthful )
For me personally, I prefer QH.
I have shown a Saddle Bred one season (Puke). He was like riding silk. Smooth and fluid. I took english lessons off of Ollie a huge Arab with a winning personality. One year during 4H I showed a grade paint gelding named Buckshot. The spring before I moved from N.MI I exercised regularly a 15.3 Tennessee Walker mare named Suzy for my friend Joanie who was ill. I often rode out the ‘kinks‘ on a Morgan cross named Tasha (she was a witch) one of the boarders horses back home in N.MI.
When I get old and crippled, I am going to buy an Icelandic horse or also called Icelandic Pony to ride around on. Simple and short, good horses. No fuss.
I rode one of these ruggedly loveable ponies in Wichita. I have never forgotten the experience……. great, short, stocky, strong little equines. A powerhouse of a horse in a tidy package.
I have been fortunate to ride many different breed of horses.
I cant say that one breed is better than the other, each breed has it’s own special qualities………
