I am looking at going more into English riding. Currently I am going to school, and would eventually like to open up a theraputic riding center for abused and or handicapped individuals. I've been working at a few similar places and have had the opportunity to work with some clydes and a fjord and I just fell in love with their tempermant. I am interested in buying a clyde, but I have never ridden one (Rode a belgian once for a few minutes). Unfortunatly I'm too far away from the old place I worked to be able to ride those.
What tips would you have for looking into getting a draft breed? I'm not that big of a person (about 5'5 and 130 lbs) so a cross may be better? I'm not sure...thats why I am asking for advice really.
Any tips/advice would be great.
