I would suggest a haflinger! They're pretty, good in traffic and stocky,strong horses! (they also seem to go for reasonable prices too!) that's what i'd go for! I know several people who have haflingers and they're lovely horses!

Do you think they could carry 300 Ibs though? Its a big weight!

I don't know a great deal about Haflinger's, except that theyre really pretty

Well, the people I know who own haflingers, are quite large people, and well they have these little haflingers that are about 14hh! And whilst im up there on my fine 16hh horse, I look down on the little stocky haflngers, they seem perfect..... but like you said that's a big weight so im not so sure....................

It would be like carrying two people wouldn't it? I think it works out at about 21.5 Stones.....
Maybe for short distances, but for a long hack, wouldn't envy any horse/pony! :)

I def. Disagree. They are far too small for such a weight.

How serious is the said person to ride....gee to be fair to any horse if meggymoo is correct 21 stones is a heavy weight for any horse to be carrying...hauling is different eg..carting. If this person is serious then you do need to look at them first. You have to be fit to ride whether you realise it or not...you could help to acheive this by walking your chosen mount in hand alot!!!!!!, you can build spacial confidence in a horse by walking them through what you intend to ride, use this time to acheive the awesome ground work. Become one with your horse, you can acheive transition and half halts at altering speeds on the ground. I dear you to try it......In a land of Monty Roberts and Lucy Rees in the UK (my personal Hero) and Andrew McClean in Austalia how can you not know this!!!. If you don't.... find out! AND baby girl if this is you at this weight, YOU CAN DO THIS! You have ground work to acheive as well! I don't need to point out what may hurt you but you know this! Horses are amazing creatures but have faults as well and basically they really are not mean't to carry such weights...Babe you need to lose the extra and build up the woman assuming you are woman!......COME ON GUYS...WHERE IS THE ENCOURAGEMENT. This person wants to ride!!!! Why do you yourselves ride?............................................. .................................................. ........BECAUSE NOTHING ELSE SETS YOUFREE!!!!

Well said Tumai, I think you've said what everyone else was more or less thinking and wanted to say, but didn't know how to put it.... If you know what I mean.

You can do it,if you want it badly enough! Xxx

Thank you Tumai

Thank you very much for your incouraging words tumai. My weight has always been a problem but my love for horse will help me uncome it. I have started walking my horse long before I posted this . I also walk with my best friend and her horses. I don't ride yet because of my weight but I was just curious of what breed would be good for carrying alittle extra. The people that are worried about me hurting horses do not have to worry I love them and would never put them in harms way. Anyway thanks again for the kind words .I know I will do this because I see other riding and it makes me want to. But I know what I have to do and will do it. The thoughts of riding my own horse has giving me more ambition then anything in my life. People that want to judge do not relize that it just hurts doesn't help..and yes tumai I am a women... thanks again

:) You keep believin in yourself first time horse rider!!!
I don't know if you or anyone here is a christian but I am and if you do find out about him you will realise that God is a horseman too!

Love yourself and keep reaching for your goal, you will be riding before you know it........and the greatest thing of all is that your horse don't judge you on how you look because he can see inside your heart!!
