I love horses! My friend has one but she is a real dark brown american saddlebred. I am not allowed to ride her because she is a wild horse.

    How can a saddlebred be a wild horse if some one owns it, or is it just not trained? I happened to have a saddlebred-quarter horse last year and he is amazing but do you know if there would be a difference in the way he walks? hope you reply!

    I am not sure about that question but I have to tell you I totally agree how is a horse wild if some one owns it? - alex ponke

Appaloosas are a wonderful breed. Please be aware that Appys are prone to ERU (equine recurring uveitis) and have a tendency to start losing sight as they get older. I rescued my Appy when he started going blind. He is now 28, completely blind and doing very well. He is field boarded and has adjusted so well that many people would never know he can't see. I still ride him on short trail rides and he does great as long as he is with another horse. I love his rascally personality and calm demeanor. Don't know what I would do without him.

I plan on getting a baby appaloosa but I'm only 13 and have to pay for it myself. I'm so happy except I don't want to pay so much for something I may not enjoy. Would someone please tell me if this is the right choice or if I should go for something else!?

    Appaloosas can have good temperaments. It depends! Other good horses are Quarter Horses and Paint Horses.

    definately how lucky. it is a once in a life time oportunity for a 13 year old, im 13 but im getting an appaloosa next year when i am 14.
  • bob ahaha - 2014-04-11
    I have one they're so cool very, good at pole bending get one it's cool!
  • Alli Erbeck - 2014-07-13
    They are very calm and a good calm ride. I'm 14 and have my own. I have no experience with male Appaloosas. But I have a female and she is low maintenance and always ready to ride. I'm not sure if it is common in others, but mine does not like when other horses are behind her, but she is paired with my miniature horse and is fine with it. Be careful!

    appoloosas are good jumpers too

    My family had a Quarter Horse as I was growing up. He was fun to ride but very quick to turn, even when galloping, so you had to be prepared when turning, or get tossed...lol.
  • Anonymous - 2014-03-02
    Get a quarter horse. I ride Western, and have three Quarter Horses and they're all loving.  Great Barrel Racing and Pole Bending Horses. They're bred to ride Western unlike The Fresian which is more of an English Riding Horse.
  • Emily - 2014-09-01
    It depends on what you want to do. Friesians are popular for dressage and because they are beautiful. The quarter horse may not be as majestic-seeming, but they are incredible versatile, willing, and sweet. Quarter horses are one of the most popular western horses, and should you want to try a different discipline, your horse will gladly try it with you. As a quarter horse owner who does 7 different disciplines, I definitely say that they are the best of the best :)

The distorted and inhumane shoeing practices used on these horses should be illegal. Anyone who understands the basic natural hoof mechanics and body posture of a horse can see they are in tremendous pain, just standing still! There is a reason why navicular issues and hoof problems are rampant with these breeds, because they are incorrectly trimmed and inhumanely shod to distort and produce an exaggerated gait that is NOT NATURAL! Please do your research....they move beautifully on bare feet with no weights and CAN go for hours that way.....but you will only break down their body by continuing this insidious shoeing practice.

    My disbelief is general public think this is okay... I agree... 100% you can obviously see the horses are in pain.
  • Clarice Brough - 2013-05-07
    So... it sounds like what you're saying is they need to be correctly shod, and if they are demonstrating pain, it has been done incorrectly. Which makes sense and a professional should probably be referred to, especially for this breed.
  • Nic - 2014-06-20
    People need to do there research before commenting!!!! If the breed is so bad Why is there 20 year old Walking-horses still showing and winning World grand championships and by the way a 6 year old was riding one of them, I don't see a 20 year old quarter horse still competing or In fact I don't see any breed of horse that lives that long and still showing. I show walking horses and they are treated better than most humans!!!! If the people in the walking horse industry did not care about there horses then why would people spend 500-700 dollars a month for training and that is not including shoeing and showing them, shoes cost about 125-200 and one show cost 60-125 and that is every weekend!!!!! Shavings up to their ankles all-you-can-eat hay worked and bathed everyday or every other day. Ya we sure do treat our horses horrible!!! P.s I had a 'Big Lick' horse and brought her home for the winner pulled the pads off and trail rode her that day for 2 hours and she did not even break a sweat or act like she was hurt in anyway!!! She is now happy and health with her first baby due any day now!!!

    This was banned about 20 years ago. The padding used today is humane and only weights down a horse's front. This encourages them to use more power from behind, and the horse lifts his legs high. What you're refering to is soring, an abusive practice where a chemical is placed on the horse's fetlock along with a chain or boot that would rub against the chemical when the hoof touched the ground and cause severe pain. This practice is and has been illegal for years. The chains and boots you see today are only to put weight on the hoof, and causes NO PAIN.
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-09-01
    Really appreciate learning about how they are trained, and that those inhumane practices are totally BANNED! YES:)
