Does anyone have a favorite horse breed that basically can do everything? I am looking at an appendix, but are there other breeds that tend to be all around horses? Thanks!

thoroughbred & throughbred mixes are my fav all around horses. warmbloods are great too, and i have a dutch warmblood x thoroughbred and she can do everything bc shes not too stocky but has great turning and is quick on her feet. i also have a thoroughbred x hanoverian...same thing w him.
Stock horses can do anything!!
Anything like a quarter horse, thoughrbread mix, or anything sticky and well built like that can do pretty much anything ! Warm bloods are great too but they can be a bit lazy (sometimes) because they are heavier and such. Quarter horses and appendix are great all rounders :)
I have an Appendix and she is an amazing all around horse. Shows beautifully and I love her.
Arabians are my favorite
Thoroughbred! They are amazing at any riding displine and build muscle fast.
Thoroughbreds are great jumpers and can develop well in dressage!
Quarter horse all the way! My QH i ride english but she goes western, i can go on trail with her! Super safe but a great personality! And there are lots of different coat colors and they can pretty much do whatever you want them to do! Hope this helps!
Morgans will give anything a shot!!
Appendixs are awesome! I like Hanoverians! I have heard that they can be very calm and can go on trail rides aswell as event
Appendixes are great for all around stuff. Quarter Horses are also great options. It really just depends on the horse though, I've seen warmbloods that barrel race and jump!
Morgans, just plain old Quarter horses, Arabian, TB's, Appys.
