You accept Mustang and Clydesdale, but you won't except Morgan or miniature unless "horse" is included? Makes no sense. Morgan and Miniature should be acceptable answers. Also, Western and English are more than just a saddle difference. The question "horses are what animals other than flight or prey" is a poor question. The answers are extremely subjective and many, many answers could fit this question.
