    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.
