I need to take him out to my back patio where it's flat and measure him again :) When I bought him the rescue lady said he'd end up around 16 hds. Which was great because I'm tall and like bigger horses. Never imagined he'd get this big! I'm now exploring the world of warmblood/draft tack depending on which body part I'm fitting. He wears an oversize bridle with a draft cavesson noseband. He does fit my Stubben saddle except it looks tiny on him. Just got a 62" girth for him, extra large breast collar, 86" blanket and I'm needing to get a new warmblood size trailer because he's too tall and long for my regular slant-load. He's worth it though :) He is a really easy keeper though. I keep him in with my POA and they eat about the same except he needs more grass hay to munch on to fill him up!
except for hight your horse is perfectly Eggo sized (my belgian X qh . . . Most likely a PMU foal) do you ride dressage or was he just beeing pretty . . . I have a collegiate convertible saddle and it can fit any where from my draft cross to my moms tb . . .they are awsome if you ride in a close contact saddle.
