What's the best part of owning a Percheron?
I have always been a QH girl.... My husband bought me a Percheron for our anniversary last month. I have not been riding over the past years because of weight gain and health issues...I Said I wouldn't ride again till I lost weight or got a horse I wouldn't feel sorry for carring me around LOL. I fell in love with Mack the day I saw him!!!! I don't know much about the breed but have been doing A LOT of reading. I would like to hear other's opinions of the breed and the best way to train and deal with them. Mack is 16.2, 5 yrs old gelding. He is green broke, gelded last Feb. Was riden maybe a dozen times before I got him. Very quiet, and a big lover. Rides very well in the arena, had issues finding the gas lol. Took him on his first trail ride and couldn't find the breaks... So I know we have some work to do... but I think he is well worth the time and energy!!!
