I have 5 year old 15.2 hands appaloosa gelding and I was wounder If he will be able to bare a rider wieghing 290 lbs?
I know that some other things factor in with this question, like does he have a short back (yes). Is he healthy ( yes).
He has a very large build and is very muscular. Id say he wieghs close to 1100 lbs.
Any answers would be helpful.
