[RC] How do I find a good horse personality/breed fit - Adamsch

My "Anglo" (breeding unclear but I was told he was Arab/thoroughbred when I bought him 12 years ago as my first horse) is getting older and I need to be thinking about retiring. We just discovered LD's this year and he loves it but we have had some issues and I am not wanting to "blow out his legs".

How do I know if its the Arab, the thoroughbred, or the Anglo that I adore about this horse. I have never bonded to another horse that I have had, like I have him. He is curious, and I do not have to worry about him getting overweight, and willing, and sensitive, and has the attitude, "who me, do I get to go riding!!!"

I have had an quarter pony who was a doll that I foxhunted and I loved her but nowhere near the bond that I have with Spirit..........

A draft cross, ditto........

Can anyone tell me, is this just a case of first horse, many years to bond, or is there something to his personality and my personality that makes me so happy with this horse??? Have you had some horses you just adore and bond to and others that you like and appreciate but........
