    How much can he carry?

    About how much weight should a 15.3 hand, 1100 lb horse be able to carry? 8 years old, medium build. Just curious :) Also, how much weight would he be able to pull?

    Varies. How much can a man carry on his back? At 20, that figure was much higher than it is for me now! Here is a link with some studies:
