Of course any horse can be bratty and misbehaved but in general drafts are some of the calmest, sweetest horses out there. They're easy to train and just lovable people friendly horses.

I have been around quite a few drafts and all of the ones I know have been very sweet and caring. I haven't had to teach my draft mare manners though, I just had to remind her that she weighs 1,000 lbs more than I do. Otherwise she takes care of everyone around her and is especially careful around kids.

I have only met two draft horses with personality issues, I work with a six hitch of Clydesdales, but other than that they are incredibly sweet. The first was a stallion that was constantly grumpy, and the other was a mare, it turned out that once she was sold for a pasture pet, she just needed more attention, but no one wanted to love on her because she was ill tempered. Now she is sweet and loves people. Others I know are so gentle, a stallion that was in a hitch with mares and was fine, drafts in their teens being retrained to ride, the draft horse is a truely remarkable type of horse, in my opinion they are generally the "Gentle Giants" of the horse world.
