Hmm, I've got a couple of my boy Rafe when I started him under saddle last fall. The ones with me actually riding are really poor quality pictures because they are stills from the video. He's only half draft (stands 15.3), but I figured it would be okay to post him here...






Also, here are a couple of my other half draft, Taz. He's not old enough to be ridden yet, but I wanted to get him used to the saddle while he's still small-ish. He is standing around 15 hands right now.




And, I just looked back and realized that I never added any of John while I was riding him. These were a couple of years ago....before he outgrew even our biggest saddle LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Drafty, if this is any indication of how huge Rafe's head is, I started him with the same bridle I was riding John in. I had to custom make my own browband because the original one on the bridle was too small for Rafe's head and was pinching his ears.

Country Woman....When I rescued Belle last June...she hadn't had any hoof care in a very long time. Her rt front hoof looked like a peeled banana peel where it had a split from the toe all the way up to her coronary band which folded into the hoof. It actually moved as two seperate pieces and abscessed for two months. We weren't sure if it would every function as one whole hoof again, or if a large chunk would completely break off or if she would develop a bone infection. She was lame for quite a while, but always a trooper and seemed to know that I was trying to help her. She recovered and is such a trooper. She even has a broken sternum....it had broken off and re-attached and feels like a door knob on her chest. That doesn't bother her though. She is a miracle horse.
