Are quarter horse good riding horses?
Yep! they are known for western riding and racing. they are the fastest horses under a quarter of a mile.
Horse riding is a good hobby if you enjoy horses. Give it a go!
Well, it depends on the type of riding you do, and on the temperate of the horse you are looking to ride/buy. Any breed will do if the horse has a good temperate, is easy to handle for your level, and can do whatever kind of riding you want to do. Some good examples would be Quarter Horses, Arabians, Thoroughbreds, grades (mixed breeds), gaited horses, Paints, Appaloosas, etc.
Gypsy Vanner Horses are cart horses. They have good temperaments but are big! They are good for inexperienced riders but I would personally recommend a Quarter Horse. I grew up riding them since I was 3 and they are still my favorite. Goodluck :)
What the best breed of horse for someone who has some riding experience and also does good with other horses?
It really depends on what type of riding you are interested in. If you like western then you may want a stock-type horse such as a Quarter Horse, Paint, or Appaloosa, or a cross breed of one of these breeds. If you are an intermediate rider than find a Quarter Horse, ect that is appropriate for your riding level. If you like huntseat or jumpers you have your choice of warmbloods, Thoroughbreds or some of… Read More
Depending on the standerbreds temperament it can make a good riding horse. But is preferably a more 'Cart pulling' horse and trotting horses.
You weigh 380lbs and you are 6ft 2 an want to know what is a good type of horse for you other then a work horse for trail riding?
See if u can find a nice big Quarter horse. Lots are short but there tough and strong and good trail horses.
The type of horse that is best suited for English riding needs good conformation. This includes good bone (cannon bone). The shoulder should be at a 45 degree angle to allow for the extended trot that simulates trekking over fields and fences in a fox hunt. At the trot the knees should swing as an extension of the shoulder and maintain a flat-knee as the horse moves forward. A good, strong back and hindquarters that… Read More
smart... depends the horse. personalities, previous experiences, lots of factors determine how horses act... quarter horses are known to be generally level headed and fairly intellegent. It's all in the horse, not the breed. I have ridden quarter horses for 4 years and I absolutely love them, though that is just my opinion. quarter horses usually act stuburn if they don't get their way.so are good and some are bad,my quarter horse is good and… Read More

Quarter horse or most horses that are bred from America
Both male and female horses are good for riding. There is no must-have preference for everyone.
If you get a good, non-stubborn Quarter Horse, then yes Quarter Horses are great to just ride around in. If your not going into compitions, get a slower Quarter Horse, also aging around 12-16. Gelding not stallion, I prefer mares. I have my own experience on Quarter Horses, I have 3 of them and I Barrel Race with my horse. And they are very gentle 'giants'! I recommend them.
A model riding horse is usually a temperamental family type of horse. A paint, pinto, palomino etc is usually good but you should always learn about a horses personality before riding it.
top three good horses for beginner's ..... Quarter horse Morgan Shetland pony
There is no single breed of horse that is the best riding horse. All horses are different and all riders are different. What one person thinks is a good ride may be inappropriate for another. But it is true that some horses run 'hotter' than others, making them ill-suited for the novice rider. The American Quarter Horse is one of the newest breeds, the AQHA began registering horses in the mid 1940's, but it is… Read More
generally, yes, but every horse is different. my horse is a 16 hand quarter horse that is a champion in level 3 dressage, and generally quarter horses arent that good at English
Any breed can be a good trail riding horse. An athletic and calm horse with good endurance can be an excellent trail horse. The most popular competive trail riding breeds are Arabian, Quarter Horse, Paint, Appaloosa and Morgans. Off the track race horses like Thoroughbreds and Standardbreds can be retrained to make nice trail horses. Mustangs, ponies and grades can also be good trail horses. Some people prefer the gaited breeds for their smooth and… Read More
Quarter horses come in a variety of colors. The term comes because the horses were bred to be good at running a quarter mile and doesn't really have anything to do with what color they are.
They just aren't built for it. Quarter horses have the ideal barrel racing conformation, with their well defined hindquarters, they are able to jump into a run from the starting gate and turn on a dime. Arabians are not built much like quarter horses. They can be good starter barrel horses, but if you want to go to the higher levels you need a horse with the build of a quarter horse.
The American Quarter Horse is usually a healthy breed. With good care and a little luck your Quarter Horse can live well into his thirties or even forties.
When I first rode I started on an American Quarter Horse mare; then I switched to an Egyptian Arabian, one of the fast horses or advance horses.Sometimes they start people off on riding Ponies or Miniature horses, so if you fall you wont fall as fast or as hard and it will hurt less.
Of course! Any type of horse can be domesticated. Paint horses are very often seen in the wild, but domesticated Paints are amazing Western riding horses, and are good in English riding too. Paint horses are actually VERY common pets.
because Quarter hoses have muscular hind ends witch makes it good for barrel racing and western riding
The American Quarter Horse of course! This horse is the most popular not only because; according to the encyclopedia of horses and ponies, quarter horses are they an easy going breed with a good temperament, but also have multiple uses. You can use a quarter horse for basically anything equine related. This category includes: Racing, roping, showing in rodeos and western events, jumping, calf roping, ranch work, both English and western riding, anything involving speedy… Read More
Horses do not make good pets. They are large, expensive to keep and when you go out of town, you have to have someone watch them. Horses are beast of burden and are excellent for showing & riding. But they are not good pets. Dogs and cats are good pets. Treating your horse like a pet and not a horse will result in a horse with problems.
it really depends on your personality or what type of riding u look into. if you are new to horses a older slower horse would be best. or maybe a kind quarter horse if you are experienced and like... jumping for example a warmblood or thoroughbred is good if you like hunter and are experienced with 'hot' horses and respect them, not abuse horses, an Arabian is a great fit it really depends on the… Read More
A good type of horse for riding is one that is sound and can accomplish the type of riding you wish to do. A good horse should also match your riding level.. for example if you are a beginner chose a mount who is a school master (well trained) and not spooky to help you learn and gain confidence in the saddle. A good horse for riding is also a horse that can accomplish the… Read More
It truly depend on your horses Training in Western Riding.If your horse is to stubborn after 3 week and does not have the routine down then your Arabian Horse is not fit for Western Riding.But if your Arabian is showing positive responds then your Arabian Horse my be good for Western Riding.
Quarter horses, Paints and Appaloosas. QH's are far more popular for western riding sports than Paints or Appies.
Maybe. It all depends on the horse, but Appaloosas are generally a good starting horse with nice canters and are great for riding bareback (that's what the Aboriginals did). In the end, it depends on both horse and rider, regardless of breed.
What horse breed should i get know a lot about horses but this will be first looking for a fast horse and good trail horse pretty easygoing with a touch of fire lol thinking quarter horse gelding...?
Well Quarter horses can be a good first choice but so can many other breeds including Paints, Appaloosas, Pony breeds, draft crosses, and Standardbreds.

It really depends on what you want to do with the horse. Two good all around western horses are the Quarter Horse and the Paint, but as there are so many different types of riding out there, its almost immpossible to have just ONE best breed of horse. Different breeds are known for different things. There are many fantastic horse, but, in my opinion, the Quarter Horse is the best. They can do anything. They… Read More
This is a matter of opinion. They both have good things going for them, and which is better for you depends on what you are looking for in a horse.
The Appaloosa's on Howrse can be good at either type of riding you just have to chose between the two types and train the horse correctly.
I believe that the best horseback riding camps are those that are at stables that are in use all year round with horses that have had lessons on them and trainers and instructors that know the horse they are working with, stear clear of camps that lease their horses for the summer the horses come from barns that in my experience don't take very good care of the horses and many of the horses have… Read More
The best breed of steeplechase horse would be between a Quarter Horse and a Thoroughbred. A Quarter Horse is so named because it can outrun any other horse in a quarter mile race... even a Thoroughbred. However, a Thoroughbred is more like a train, while not super fast as first, its speed will build and build until he leaves all others behind. The call on which breed to buy is yours to make. As far… Read More
The American Quarter Horse. The AQHA is the largest horse breed in the world with well over 1.5 million regestered horses. There is a very good reason why the world loves these American horses. They are versatile, loyal, good-minded and beautiful.
It all depends on the horse. I wouldn't look for a specific breed, more the horse that you want. :D Quarter Horses and QH crosses are generally used.
It depends on how much you exercise your horse. All quarter horses were bred for endurance, so they are naturally good at endurance, but the muscle tone all depends on how much you work him/her out! And all horses are born with pretty much the same amount of muscle
There are many different breeds of sport horses, from Thoroughbreds to Quarter Horses to Tennessee Walkers. But it seems that the most popular sport horse is the QH, because of its adaptability and versatility.
The "quarter" portion of the name (I hope the "horse" part is obvious) comes from the fact that they were specifically bred to have good performance in a run of a quarter of a mile: they're essentially the "sprinters" of horses (for comparison, the Kentucky Derby is five times that distance).
cowwy means that a horse is a good cow horse, good for ranch work like working with cows like it can sense when they are going to move, and can track it, it's a western term when a horse has cow sense, popular in Quarter Horses hope that helps
You can start handling a horse when there born. But you can only start riding at 2 YO. If you start at 1 the horses joints won't be very good.
There are good and bad horses in every breed, so to go by breed is not a good way of finding a good horse, although, there are certain breeds that are more high strung and tend to be more hyper and less sensitive to the rider. Arabians, Warmbloods, and nearly all gaited breeds are not the best choice for a first horse. I am not saying that if you find a good gaited horse it… Read More
Arabians and Quarter horses. But any horse can be trained to be good at cross county.
Stock breeds are breeds like Quarter Horses and Paints. They are of a stockier build and are good western horses-not saying they cannot do english- many do.
yes. horse riding is good for you it helps: 1. builds your horsesmanship and relation ship with your horses. 2. It also helps build and relax your muscles. 3. And the you ride more of a confidence rider you become and that means less accidents and injures.
Yes basically they are, they are almost the same as the Appaloosa also. The Quarter horse was originally created by crossing the fastest running horses that could be found with thoroughbreds. The result was a stocky horse that came in every possible horse color. When the American Quarter Horse Association formed they banned 'excessive' white markings as they thought color determined how good a horse was. So some women formed the American Paint Horse Association… Read More
