Morgans are also really versatile horses. I knew nothing about them when I found my mare, but at the advice of a wise friend, decided to give the breed a try. Wow, I'm glad I did! Morgans will do just about anything: western pleasure, work cattle, reining, dressage, saddleseat, trail....etc. I ride mine huntseat. My mare is an easy keeper (ie; gets fat on AIR), intelligent, sensible, has great feet, teeth and a good coat. Morgans have a reputation for longevity. (As old as I was when I started riding, my Morgan may outlive ME!). I also realized the other day, that their reputation for having a tendancy to be "strong-willed" has some merit!
I'm also a HUGE fan of Saddlebreds for many of these same reasons.
When I think about it....I guess I love all breeds!! Let's hear from some more of you about your chosen breed!
