My friend is around that area and he rides a quarter/percheron cross. Vewry beautifly built horse though. Maybe look into something like that.

You could buy my big QH He is about 15.2hh, 1,300lbs solid muscle. When I bought him he was said to be a ''man's horse'' :roll:

I would choose a draft cross iv seen quite a few belgin/qh ranch horses and pmu foals that are great riding horses. Also somthing to keep it mind is you probley don't want a horse that takes a ladder to get on.

A well built, 16hh+, stocky QH or Paint would do fine with you :)

What you want to do with a horse influences what kind of horse you should choose. Regardless, there are horses out there who will meet your needs ... and they don't have to be big stocky draft horses that aren't particularly well suited for riding.

If you prefer huntseat, jumping, or dressage, find a warmblood (a draft cross). A good sized quarter horse would work too, as already mentioned.

If you are into pleasure riding or trail riding, Missouri Fox Trotters or Tennessee Walkers would be a sturdy fit. They're similar in size and build, but I personally like the personalities of the Fox Trotters better.

Any of those would work. Don't listen to anyone who would discourage you from riding. You just need to find the right horse for you!
