That's the thing, you can't find a big walker to buy in Oregon either but if you do you'll likely pay less for it than a shorter one. That's because it's been on the market for a while so you can dicker them down if they haven't already really dropped the price.
Jolly, those narrow slab sided horses are easier to ride than barrel chested horses. It's part of the same deal as breeding them down in size, done for sellability and not for show. Also, you can have that narrow built horse who is an absolute tank when you look at their bone structure. This guy here, http://www.horseforum.com/members/24...phax-21089.jpg
, has a narrow chest but there is nothing fine about his bones (16.2hh). Not only that he out weighs this guy, http://www.horseforum.com/members/24...ster-21088.jpg
who has a wider chest, same height at the wither but almost a full inch taller in the butt. He has what I would call normal sized bone structure.
