Drafts for beginners?
Hi all, so, I had posted 2 threads asking about what horse would be suitable for a "chubby" girl to ride. The same repetitive answer was a draft, draft x, or QH. I absolutely love drafts, mostly the Percheron's, they're so big and beautiful, but I'm not sure how they carry weight, or if they are a good horse for beginners.
I've tried Googling drafts and crosses and it hasn't helped me to find a horse or a cross that I like. Does anyone have any info on how well a draft or certain crosses can handle larger riders, and beginners at that? I would love to see pictures of some drafts or crosses and some info, if possible, like how much the draft or cross eats comparatively to the lighter horses, how much the tack costs compared to the lighter horses, and ect. Also, I'm NOT wanting to compete, I'm just wanting a horse for just simple trail riding, or driving, but mostly riding. Can someone help?
