My father is 6'4" and he went on his first trail ride with us on a Standardbred in NZ.

He was fairly tall and stocky and my dad was very comfortable (his first ever time on a horse too) and his legs weren't dangling either.

I think you should look for something with substance that COULD easily do trails and endurance.

I think your husband is looking at their beauty rather than their build and potential.

EDIT: Something like this?

Lol.. He said "fair enough", and he has informed me many times that he won't ride a horse that he does not like the look of. Thank you all for your opinions, I get frusterated with the breeds/ mixes he likes because I don't know much about them. He has a very strong bias against quarter horses.

Have him check out the one I posted and see if he likes her.

She's 17hh (have to make sure.. sellers often are wrong) good trail horse, sane, and she's beautiful too.

The horse has a very straight hind leg and a VERY long and swayed back. It is hard to see in these photos but it is there. Typical of Saddlebreds, she has a lovely shoulder and neck and front leg.. indicating freedom of movement there.

That straight hind leg and over long back are a concern, but you have to see her in person.

They've been trying to sell off all of their stock for... let me think now.. four years? Some where around that time anyways.

As far as height goes - take into consideration how big of a difference there is between the wither height and actual back height on that horse. She's NOT 17hh if you think of it that way.

Good luck finding the right match! :)

I like the TWH. That's more in the right vein. I like draft X's for big guys but as stated, they aren't known for their endurance ability on the trails. Too sloooowww. Standardbreds are awesome too, and many are very pretty!

Tell your hubby to start looking with his head - beauty does not mean functionality. Does he want a sound, sane trail horse? Or a pretty looking, hot headed, unsound beast that ends up stuck out in a paddock somewhere looking fancy?
Generally speaking, the 'fashionable' 'sport horse' breeds are not so ideally suited to the trails.
Tell the man to smarten up, trail riding isn't a fashion parade ;)
