ideal driver
 
what do you think would be the ideal driving horse for you,i love the friesian but i dont like the height so mine would be the friesianx pony trotter or crossed with a native pony about 14.2hh coal black and plenty of action i,d feel like a lord flashing him

I have a 7yr old Paint Clydesdale that would be a gorgeous driver

Fell Ponies!!! So glad I have one hehe :)

Also Miniatures! And Fjords :) Haflingers are great as well....

i love fell ponies too- but i think a freisan crossed with a cob would be ideal to me- a comfortable ride, good temperment with a little fire, feathering but not too much,( not to the point of reminding me of a poodle) about 14.2 - 15h. and predominately black. hmm reminds me of someone i have already!

Jimmy,
I have a friesian cross who will mature about 15.1
I also do not like a large horse
I would add a pic if I knew how.

Any, as long as it's like my school horse Camy :D
Calm, good for everything!

I love the draft breeds for driving... but I want a multi-use horse - for trail riding - and therefore prefer smaller horses.

i quite like the connemarra or a connemarra X (like hob-knob)

I would have to say i love my haflinger mare. She's a blast to drive and amazing. But also i would love to drive percherons : ]

The ideal driver is calm, consistent, doesn't shy at things or noises, goes on a loose rein, has feet of iron and doesn't need shoes, never gets sick and stays fat on straw. What color it is should be at the bottom of the list.
