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.
don't worry, thankyou, he can be a real monkey, today I had a lesson on him and he decided he wanted to be a rocking horse and started rearing and bucking but he is like an arm chair to sit to and I don't feel it although my instructor says he jumps quite high sometimes... I do drop my stirrup leather I will definitely look like a pea on a drem when he gets bigger but I don't look too bad at the moment lol, he is a gentle giant but I think I wouldnt like him so much if he didnt have a little naughty streak in him. He is a very exciting ride and things are still new to him :P
