I don't think you qualify for plus, Dressage!

Nice horse! What breed is he?

I was about to mention TSC too. Funny enough the pair I got for my mom survived for year. I'm still wearing mine though (really like them, but not for riding - they are too soft and give me no support for the ankle). I guess depends on luck.

Looks really big (especially next to other horse).

Lol! 17 hh IS big. Should be hard to get on. One of my mares is 14'3, and some days I feel like dragging my bum on her.

Yeah I was able to get on him from the ground once. But that was with my friend pushing my butt so I didn't fall back down

I now know why mounting blocks were made!
