Riding a horse that only drives
At the time, I do not have any options to ride "regular" so to speak, horses. My uncle has three very good tempered draft horses. These horses have been "ridden" but I don't think have ever actually worn a saddle. They are trained for driving. Would it be recommended to put them through training? Or would it be okay to just get them used to using tack and begin riding them without any formal riding on the horses part? These big draft horses have beaten up one of the work hands riding horse before and I would really be the only person riding them so an actual riding horse isn't a huge player here.
