My favorite type of horse would have to be an Akhal-Teke. Although they generally aren't too big (15 hands- 16 hands), they are really gorgeous horses. They have a naturally occuring metalic coat and they're body shape is very unique. They also have an amazing tempermant, but since they aren't common, there are not that many breeders in the US. They originate from Turkmenistan, so transporting them over for breeding isn't cheap. I'm so lucky to live near and have a friendship with one of the most amazing breeders in the country.
