The best horse for kids so far.......... They are calm, gentle, and even they are fast they will NEVER hurt anybody altough if it's toddler! So if you have a kid and it wants a horse then buy a quarter horse gelding for it, because mare is not even 90% save only 80% save(no horse is 100% save, geldings are 90% save.And NEVER buy a stallion!Stallions are 0% save!Even if it's a quarter horse!Also you need to get sure the horse has a good temperament!NEVER buy a horse before you know it's temperament!So good luck with selecting a right horse for your kid!

paint Report Abuse
American paint horses are beautiful in and out. Most are sweet, loving, willing and trust wrothy. But keep in mind pick one good for your type of living some are peppy like their thoroughbred atcestors but most of them have more quaterhorse in them which are peppy, calm and some times lazy! I love them so much

Arabian Report Abuse
This is one of the world's most famous breeds! Also one of the most elegant breeds of horse. The only horse breed which has some, though not all, have 5 lumbar vertebrae instead of the usual 6, and 17 rather than 18 pairs of ribs. Really beautiful horse.

Each horse is an individual. My polish Arab was "bomb proof" and I often taught young children with him. I think the scariest thing he ever did was a full body shake while a friend's 4 year old was aboard. What 4 year old would be expecting that. My friend bred Arabs and all (even her stallion) were great animals. Many were not related either. So horses are individuals and human skills and abilities make things awesome or horrible. Dogs are the same too yet folks love to make lists that are complete fantasy because its the work you put into it and the dedication to form the relationship you want that's key.

Arabians have quite the wild side!!!It wouldn't be very smart to throw your kids on one of those horses.(unless an older horse)

Shetland Pony Report Abuse
A smaller framed pony, low to the ground.
15 points - added 5 years ago by BrendaKaye - 2 comments
Comments:
I would be interested to hear any positive shetland pony stories that don't end with the child getting hurt. We grew up around all sorts of horses and ponies and I would never recommend a shetland pony to a family with children. They will throw you off, run off with you riding them, and some other not so great qualities that I wouldn't recommend for children. I would say it was the trainer, but I've seen it with many different trainers and discipline strategies. Welsh ponies, yes. Shetland Ponies, no.

Gypsy Vanners are extremely intelligent and patient, and are a smaller horse breed. I highly recommend them for children. Beautiful horses.

They have "fire" and "spunk" but depending on the persistence of the kids can be great horses.
