I am a christian also

I knew there was something in your heart that was the same as mine. The love for Christ our savior. I gave my best friend in the whole world who is standing by me thought everything and believes in me, a poem called Heaven's Horseman. It talks about how God must have been a horseman to create such a beautiful aniamal. Again thank you so much for you kind words. May God bless you in everything you do and your horse too:)

I think a quarterhorse draft horse cross would be great but just a bigger quarter horse would also be good one of my mom's friends weights about 350 he is huge but he rides a little short and stocky quarter horse 8)

For example..
The rehabilitation center I work at cuts the weight limit off at 205#. There is a reason behind that...

And yes, we even have a draft there.

oh please inform me on the reason behind that kristy!!!!!

Please inform me on the reason behind that kristy......
Because I have talked to several horse breeders and even two different vets that have all said that a horse can and will carry large amounts of weight well over 300 pounds . I am not stupid I don't hardly think that I'm going to ride a little 14.2 horse. I really don't understand why you have to be so negative and smart mouth with your remarks to everyone. I thought this was a place to go to talk about horses and to learn things about them. It seems like everyone that has a question on here ends up getting a nasty or smart remark from you. Yes I do realize that I posted this question. But I thought I would get helpful and respectful answers. Not someone acting as if they knew anything and everything. No one knows everything about horses I don't care who you are. In my opinion no one person is any better then the rest of us.
THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS

Please allow me to interject before any potential escalation occurs. I want to say off the bat that I am not "siding" with kristy or First time horse owner here and am not commenting on the actual exchange. I am merely making a statement that needs to be said.

If anyone feels that any member, whether a moderator or otherwise, has exhibited a pattern of conduct that has made participation at the Horse Forum uncomfortable or frustrating, please send me a private message about it and the issue will be looked into and addressed if necessary.

It need not even be a pattern - if you read a post that you feel is rude, inconsiderate, or otherwise lacks tact and reflects poorly on the community, please let me know.

I understand the desire to post publicly when one feels they have been wronged or is frustrated, but accusatory posts, no matter how politely phrased, will likely only elicit replies that escalate a situation and create a further rift between members. Such posts cannot actually remedy a situation, but sending me a message can.

If anyone has any problems with anyone here, please come to me with them so that they can be looked into and resolved.

In response to the topic itself, First time horse owner I think that it is wonderful that you are so motivated by the idea of riding your own horse. I know you will get there because you are so passionate about it. I don't think there was any question that you would put a horse in harms way, as your creating this topic alone is evidence of your concern for the animal's welfare.

Admin :)

I'm sorry I hit a nerve with you.. that wasn't my intention. I'm not quite sure why you reacted in such a way, regardless - I'm sorry.

The rehabilitation center has their own mandatory weight limit. The riders can have various disabilities often causing them to be unbalanced and to apply unevenly distributed weight across a horses back. The horses can be used in various lessons for a couple times a day. The center must also comply to NARHA regulations and standards.
I said there was reasoning because a rehabilitation center has different requirements - which is why I also mentioned it was a rehab center.
As for mentioning the draft ... there is a draft. There was nothing meant behind that other then the fact there is a large draft there yet there still are limitations to consider. I spoke of the draft because it was previously mentioned.
In your original post you didn't say who the weight limit was for, so I def. Wasn't addressing my answers to insult you personally, especially since I didn't know it was about you to begin with. (And I still don't.)

I don't have anything against you and I'm not out to insult you. I wish you could have confronted me privately or talked to the administrator, but he's already addressed this.
This is, however, a public forum and I understand people will be mistaken. After all, I don't think it's easy to find out a person's intentions behind a computer screen.
I certainly don't have problems with other members as well. I enjoy all of them. I have straight forward replies and generally use adequate english, but this is really the only thing I'm aware of that could be taken wrong or fussy. Anything else, I am honestly oblivious to and do not mean any harm. If you could point out something I am doing, that would help.

Kristy how can you say that when horses and ponies have been pulling and carring houndreds of pounds for houndred of years???, on average a average settlers pack horse and horse would carry enough supplies to last a winter, as for knights and there armour? Houndreds of pounds, I guess I hate to say but today's horses are way to pamperd then, I had a baby a couple of months ago and haven't lost my baby fat yet but yet abby who is 14.1 can take it

What??
Generally, draft horses are bred for their strength in pulling, not carrying. For those that were used to carry, it was generally with mules or donkeys whose body structures was much more compatible for carrying weight. Horses are generally not bred as transporting animals anymore. Machinery has replaced them heavily. Also take into consideration what modern horses are bred for. Compare a modern day warmblood to that of one several hundred years ago and you'll find that strength has lessened compared to impulsion, gaits and refinement. It's a give and take situation.
And I never once said a draft couldn't carry weight to begin with. It's what I actually originally suggested. If I could ask a horse their opinion, I would. But for now, we each have our own opinion to form and this is mine.
