Morgan horses are spirited, but are they jumpy and highstrung? I am looking for a first horse and I am afraid of horses when they are highstrung. Thanks.

    Well any horse can be high-strung, but Morgan horses generally aren't too high-strung. Other good ones are Quarter Horses and Paint Horses.

    It depends upon the type of Morgan family the Morgan horse you select comes from. I have a 'Show' Morgan and this type is spirited, sassy, proud yet stubburn and defiante. She can be a handful if you are hardhanded or give poor cues in how to work her. She is more like a performance horse. A friend of ours has a 'Working' Morgan and that type is easygoing, lighthearted with a willingness to be your companion. It's this type of horse which most persons envision owning. They are kind of like the Paint horse or maybe even a Quarter horse. But, please check out what his/her lineage is before you commit yourself to the Morgan horse. I love our 'Show' Morgan, she is alot of work and full of sass but she is well worth the time and effort put into her.

    Any horse can be high strung, I have a 4 year old quarter horse mare that hasn't been ridden in over a year because she got injured terribly while running in the field with my Uncle's horses. They caused her to kick a trailer and her hoof came half off, she was on stable rest for months after that. Now her hoof is healed except when I get on her, she bucks. So um...I guess my point is, any horse can be high strung or aggressive or both. But my suggestion would be a cross-breed, maybe a Morgan, Clydesdale mix? I have one of them and she is amazingly well behaved and talented, she's also great for beginning riders, she's 17. Try looking up cross-breeds and tell me what you think! I hope this helped!

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.

    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 :)
