    You should check into getting a trained Standardbred. They usually have a beautiful calm temperament, and are great for trails & regular riding.

    It is a shame to get into arguments on a thread like this.
    I wonder if different countries have different ideas of what 'cow hocks' are?
    I can see that in extremes they arent good but the breed standard in the UK for the Clydesdale is that the point of its hocks should 'turn inward' and not outward which technically speaking is 'cow hocked'
    Maybe the breed requirements in other countries is different though I do know that many of the horses are still imported from Scotland UK

    Can we please just love these giants and not get into a fight about them

    I agree!! My horses may not be show quality, by any means...but, what a feeling when I can ride mine through anything and do anything with them that I ask with no problem, while the show quality horses that people actually pay thousands for, go bezerk! Now, I'm NOT categorizing "ALL" show quality horses, of course....but boy, have a seen a lot of high priced horses that I wouldn't even think of riding. With that being said, I also don't want to do dressage, barrel race, jump, race, event, show....or any of that fancy stuff. I just keep taking people's rejects and having a wonderful time with them!
