They're all so lovely! Thanks for the photos. It's a good thing that some people still run draught horses and that they didn't get extinct with the tractor, truck etc taking over. Such majestic animals and usually such gentle giants too!

A full percheron is not going to make a stellar trail mount. They will also come with a higher maintenance cost. I love my drafts and will have them the rest of my life but I don't see that where you are right now that they are the right horse for you. What I would suggest for now is to seek out someone around you with a 4-6 up who is looking for some help for the upcoming show season. Typically they do not pay but they will pay your expenses to travel with them to the larger shows during the summer. In exchange you will be thrown into the deep end and get one of the best hands on educations out there. You will be eligible to show in youth driving classes (you typically must be under 17) as well as youth riding and showmanship classes when they offer them. There are also some great scholarship programs the different breed registries and state draft horse clubs offer that are always attractive to pursue.

We have a handful of these beauties! We do used to do a lot of showing with them. Now they mostly work around the farm and have fun! The riding one is of my mare Lily. It's also her with me in my prom dress. The team is Lily and Bunny. Half sisters. I drove them myself in our prom parade! They are so much fun, and just a joy to work with!

Since smrobs shared Taz, I'm going to share my hunk, Aires. He's a 5yo paint/Percheron cross.

Him as a baby with his momma:

And him just few weeks ago (my best friend riding him for the second time bareback):

Back in February:

Pretending to be a barrel horse:
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.
