In your opinion, what is the best breed of dog to have as a trail riding companion?

I see a lot of discussions on this site about dogs valued as trail riding buddies which made me wonder what the most popular choice would be among our members. Which breed do you think is the perfect k-nine as a trail riding companiion, that can keep up with a horse, won't stray away, and will sit around the campfire with you at the end of the day?

We have had all kinds of dogs from German Shepards to Blue Heelers and my vote goes to the Heelers.
My black lab is the best horse dog I've ever had. He stays ahead of us on the trail, or nearby...and can be let off his leash at the camp site to go use the potty and comes right back. Sweet and calm. I have a standard poodle who is an excellent horse/camping dog too!
