A gorgeous 19hh Clydie, a gentle giant with massive feet. Of non-drafts, a 17.3hh warmblood with heavy TB influence. Biggest horse I've ridden was a 17.1hh OTTB - must have looked ridiculous on him, being 5'1 myself!

My old man Rooster was just shy of 17hh, he was MASSIVE.
In this photo he's standing by our mare Dash who's 15.2 or 3.


Then I took in Stormy, a 18+hh Clyde. Riding him was incredible! I felt like a fly!

The biggest equines I've ever seen were two Belgian cross mules. Gorgeous and HUGE! Over 18 h, but I don't know exactly how big.

The next biggest was a 17.3 h TB who'd just come off the track. Not only was he big, he was nutso.

I've seen Radar as well.. He was at our fair a few years ago and freaking HUGE. He was very happy to get scratches and loves though.. Very sweet guy.

LOL We actually had a draft mule years ago and he was such a derp. I don't remember how tall he was exactly, definitely over 17hh. He was very in your pocket and we could ride him but he was so much of a beast that I could barely get him to stop or go where I wanted him to go..He just went, which was 99% of the time at a walk.. His name was Freddie lol.. I will NEVER forget one day though, my sister and I were feeding.. I had Freddie's feed and he was walking beside me to his bucket as I'm walking he was sniffing around my waist and before I knew it he had bitten my belt and had me in the air by it..Not much, but enough that I couldn't get my feet on the ground and I was just hanging there.. He held me there for a few seconds but let me go and I dropped to the ground laughing so hard I couldn't get back up. He got a slap in the chest for that one and never did it again but I'll never forget that derp..We ended up selling him to a couple that wanted him for their team of draft mules..

My BO took a Thoroughbred gelding on trial and he was 17hh. My trainer has a NSH gelding that is 16.3hh. They both have withers well over my head. Actually, I was better off looking under than over them. LOL
