18.2hh Fresian/Draft cross who had absoulutley no manners and would use his increidble strenght to haul your arms out of your sockets. Given I was riding in a 14" kids dressage saddle because he was acting up for her so I jumped on to help her and I was mmaking him do what he didn't want to...I'm surprised I kept my seat as he bucked and twisted and kicked out. He would rub you against the wall, be going nice and then just stop and spin towards the wall. Never again.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Be a first rate version of yourself,
not a second rate version of someone else.

That would have to have been my 16.3hh TbXPercheron mare that i sold 2 years ago.
I really enjoy riding the bigger horses, but my personal favs are shorter lol as i am short & can't for the life of me mount a tall horse without something to stand on!
