ideal driver

What do you think would be the ideal driving horse for you,i love the friesian but I don't like the height so mine would be the friesianx pony trotter or crossed with a native pony about 14.2hh coal black and plenty of action I,d feel like a lord flashing him

I love fell ponies too- but I think a freisan crossed with a cob would be ideal to me- a comfortable ride, good temperment with a little fire, feathering but not too much,( not to the point of reminding me of a poodle) about 14.2 - 15h. And predominately black. Hmm reminds me of someone I have already!

Jimmy,
I have a friesian cross who will mature about 15.1
I also do not like a large horse
I would add a pic if I knew how.

I love the draft breeds for driving... but I want a multi-use horse - for trail riding - and therefore prefer smaller horses.

I quite like the connemarra or a connemarra X (like hob-knob)

I would have to say I love my haflinger mare. She's a blast to drive and amazing. But also I would love to drive percherons : ]

Old Horseman

The ideal driver is calm, consistent, doesn't shy at things or noises, goes on a loose rein, has feet of iron and doesn't need shoes, never gets sick and stays fat on straw. What color it is should be at the bottom of the list.
