The typical ratio is 20% of the horse's weight including tack. By horse weight, it means the horse's ideal weight, not for a horse that is overweight.
There are certain breeds that are built/bred to carry more then the 20%, such as Quarter Horses or Arabs. Drafts are not one of those since that breed was bred to pull, not carry.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
