I know EXACTLY what you mean. I have to abseil down his body when I get off. Ordinary horse people tell me to 'jump' but you know, not one of them has taken up the challenge to give him a go!

Seems to be a Clydesdale trait and I get so much grief from other horse owners at the yard telling me I need to be firmer and 'make him do it'. Making him do it doesn't work for Patrick, just makes him more stubborn and when you got a 1 ton horse at 18.1 hh refusing to do something, guess who usually wins....yep me...because I change my mind and make him do something else....works every time....LOL
The extent of her sabino is not common, but very striking. I have a hunch that she may also carry splash - one day I might test for it.

We tried the "make her do it" route... It got a bit ugly (draft sized hysterics... Not fun) . Figured it was time to get smarter, not tougher - worked like a charm. Normally this mare is very willing to try, but tick her off and it's a whole other game. I find going at things softly and confidently is definitely the way to go. I have had her since she wa about 15 months old, definitely one of my favorite horses!

Now I am not against riding draft type horses at all, however, I know it's not really common practice, especially in my area. I'm super determined though because he's made a deal with me that I can teach him to ride if he gets to ride a Clydesdale.

So yeah, long story short, I was just wondering if any of you have a Clydesdale whom you ride, or know people who do. I'm especially interested in people who live in southeastern Pennsylvania, cause that's where I am xD
