I would let him try out a Clyde first. See if he actually likes to ride. No sense in purchasing one in the future, if he finds riding is not for him. If you do decide to get one, have a look at the many draft horse rescues. There are often very well broke horses, from which to choose. Encourage him also, to maybe try some other big drafts, like a Belgian. There are probably more well trained Belgians around and in rescue.
Oh ok, we're in Texas. Were you able to find any place in your area that has any clydes that they "rent"?
No, but I don't need to rent one. You might be thinking about the original poster who wanted to try one out for her husband. I posted that I was looking to buy one. And that I was wanting to train for riding. Posted via Mobile Device
Anyone trained one for riding? Would love to hear of your experiences. Am looking to bring a yearling home next year, to eventually train for riding in a couple years. Am planning on using Clinton Anderson methods.
