When you’re learning how to ride or buying your first horse, you want things to be easy. Of course, by the time you buy a horse, you’re at least somewhat competent riding and caring for them.
Certain horse breeds are well-suited for beginners. They require little maintenance, generally like being around humans, and don’t spook easily.
Shires make a lot of people nervous because of their sheer size. These horses are the tallest in the world, and the tufts around their hooves can make them appear imposing.
Arabians are a ton of fun to ride but are better suited for experienced riders. These horses’ personalities tend to run hot.
These horses are typically known to be feral and aren’t good for riding and new owners should think twice before buying or adopting one.
