    There are three types of SSH:

    1.) Spotted show bred walkers.

    2.) Spotted plantation/old style walkers.

    3.) "Actual" SSHs, which have little to no walker blood.

    The last two are great trail horses and are usually stout enough to carry a larger rider. "Actual" SSHs are usually shorter than average and have an almost pony like build to them. Like most ponies, they're very sturdy for their size. They usually have a step pace or saddle rack as their easy gait of choice, while most walkers... Well, walk.

    Hi everyone. I know this is an older thread, but it was one that stood out to me. I am an older rider who is around 220, and my TWH is one of the stout "old school" horses. He seems to carry me just fine, but I don't do alot of faster riding...mostly walking with the occasional four-beat for about 1/2 mile. I have had my horse for about a year + and am trying to lose weight. ( had ovarian cancer surgery,then hernia surgery, then other complications that restricted exercise, etc.) I'm glad to see a thread where I can talk to other plus sized riders.
