For what I do, a lighter horse or a draft cross.

I drive both.
Ponies and Light horses and also heavy horses.

A heavy horse has its place, but the appeal of a pony or light horse is far more enticing. If we had to choose just the one it would be the ponies.

Heavy horse is like driving a truck. (not that she inst responsive and light in the mouth) just the way of going etc.
Ponies and light horses are like sports cars.

I love driving any GOOD driving horse from 32" - 18+ hands. I love the power of drafts, the grace of my light horse, and the fire of my mini.

I have only drove a standardbred, mini, and a percheron. I love the power(like you said) of a percheron, I love the swiftness of a standardbred, and the gentelnes of a mini:)

The minis are the most fun, I think!

Not a draft, nothing against them but I do combined driving and prefer minis and athletic sport ponies :)
