I've wanted to have a horse since I was a little girl (i'm now 19 almost 20). I've recently been working with a woman, help out with her horses (feeding, mucking out, taking out etc). I'm pretty big (300lbs but will get down to 150/200 before riding) so been think about a draft for a while, and decided on a Clydesdale. I'm planning on getting a yearling (i know they must be atleast 3 before riding them), I've talked with the lady i'm helping out at the moment, and she said she will help me out with training ect (she's owned horses over 30years, and owned a couple of youngsters (one who is now 22)
I'm planning on learning natural horsemanship, and when eventually start riding i'll be using a bitless bridel. And also going barefoot. (i've found a site called wildhooves.co.uk which is very close to me.)
If anyone can give me more info and advice i'd greatly appreciate it.
