Your first draft ride...?
I rode a draft horse (Percheron to be exact) for the first time today :) His name is Admiral and he belongs to a friend of mine. It was amazing being on him and his gaits were awesome :D So tell me, what was you first ride on a draft like?
Congrats, drafts are a blast! My first ride on one was with our Paint Clydesdale, who we sold last year.
It hurts! She was so wide that I pretty much had to do the splits to sit on her.
I did vaulting at a horse camp on a 17.1hh Irish Draft. His name was Sampson and he was huge lol
My first draft ride was also the first ride for the draft I was on LOL. It was.......interesting and a little intimidating. The first one for me was also a Perch that was just under 18 hands at the time. Quite a change from the 15 hand or shorter stock horses I was used to riding.
wow that's a beautiful horse!
I rode a draft horse for the first time when our barn got three PMU horses that were Shire/Percheron crosses. It was fairly exciting and nerve-wracking for me, but mostly because they were green broke and I hadn't had much experience riding green horses at the time, not because of their size. ;)
Now that I work at a farm that breeds draft crosses and has many draft horses, I've come to realize that they come in all shapes and sizes!
I rode a lazy belgian mare :P. Yep, soooo she was lazy,western and annoying. She is now in a retirement barn.
My first ride was a clydesdale mare when I was 14 :) I leased her for 3 years I loved her so much!
