This is a question I would never post on a UK forum because TB are only supposed to carry 10 stone in the UK
However on this forum I know I will get an honest sensible answer to my question :). The reason I am asking is I have always believed TB to be completely scatty and most of the ones I have met have been. How ever my 16 year old daughter has just bought a great 15.2hh reschooled ex racehorse who is only 5 but more sensible headed than some of my ponies. He is her first horse :)
In the UK ex racehorses do not fetch much money. This year I have learned to canter and want to start jumping once I have this under my belt I was contemplating perhaps buying my first riding club type horse ie one that can show,do lower level dressage and jump or small x country course.
Could a larger rider, have a ex racehorse TB or would I be to heavy I have alway ridden Native ponies up till now.As they are weight carrier and cope well with me. But after meeting my daughters new horse I am planning ahead a few years that maybe I could get a reschooled ex race horse and do lower level competitions maybe.......
What do you guys think? Possible or not?
If your larger and ride a TB post your pics please :)
