My first ride on a draft was when I was leasing Duke. They had him in a snaffle and the girl that took me out (now a good friend of mine) asked me if I wanted to canter. At the time I was just getting back into horses but I said sure. He scared the crap outta me, I never thought he was going to stop. After a few hairy rides like that I bought a bridle and switched him to a kimberwick, so nice to have brakes lol. I miss him though went from over 17 hands to 14.2ish.
