Sorry, I picked up girl from Kristy's post!
I remember mine having a lovely temperament, but then they are known as gentle giants. Could be a monkey though too, I just use to think that was the tb in him! Not that you could see it, looked more shire than tb or Irish Draft.
I use to think I looked like a pea on a drum!
You must be a whole lot more flexible than me... I use to cheat and lower the stirrup leather till I could reach to get on.
