I agree, plus riding a draft makes my bottom look smaller! :)

LOL I asked my husband "Does my bum look big on this horse?....He said "yep!" Its amazing what you can do with a wheebarrow, a shovel and a pitch fork...and a patch of ground next to the muck heap. Husband has now gone on a very long holiday all by himself....Thinking of building a concrete path next to the muck heap now and putting some flower pots on it with flowers in them. What do you think?

Drafts are fabulous to ride! When I was horse shopping 3 years ago when I was horse shopping I had a heck of a time finding a horse that will take up my leg (I'm 5'9") I finally on a whim went to see a Belgian and ended up taking her. She was amazing to ride!

Here's my contribution to this thread:

The first horse is Prince, a 17.2 black Clydesdale gelding that lives a few miles away. Nice horse, not a slouch by any means, and very comfy to ride.

The second horse is Bracken, another 17.2 Clydesdale that I shared for nearly a year. Great fun to ride (cantering him was like sitting on a rocking horse!), and he quite liked jumping!

The third photo is taken from Prince, with another Clydesdale (Mel) up front.

The fourth is the last horse I shared, Mouse, who I shared for a wee while this year. And more often that not I rode him bareback!

what saddles do you have for your drafts? I have wintec wide at this moment but it seems to be too narrow :/ (don't have the widest gullet but 3xw - I want to buy 4xw but I don't think that it will be enough...)

Duett makes excellent saddles for wide horses, custum made gullet to fit your horse. They're expensive but definitely worth every penny.

You guys really make me consider moving to England... Seems like a nice way of life, even if I can't own a gun!
