Heavy Paint body on those little legs? Yep, lots of them are like that. Lots of them stay sound anyway no issues at all. It's not about the thickness of the bone as much as it's about the density of it. I mean look at Arabians. A finer-boned breed I've yet to meet, and a good Arabian can carry a 200lb man day in, day out no trouble at all. They are tough as nails.

A good Paint looks refined, but is (similar to the Arabian) a lot tougher than it looks.

This is a picture of when Jess got her as a Christmas present. Everyone at our stable of over 60 borders over 100 students and stable show riders and stable hands knew she was getting Toby. Jess had no idea she thought she was just ridding the stables newest lesson horse.

Is that you in your avatar? You're not big! I know a lady who is a lot larger and who will only ride Arabians because she doesn't get along with any other breed. And hers are the really fine Egyptian strain, you know, the REALLY typey refined delicate looking things you see in the show ring. The ones you wouldn't expect to hold even a 110lb rider, just by looking at them.

I love ridding her she is so patient with me yet has lots of spirit for Jess. I think she loves people.

You have a right to your opinion. Just as I do and I think all horses are beautiful if not in looks then in personality, sometimes we have to look beyond the obvious to find the treasure

Someday I'd like to try riding one of these horses. So odd in the way many of them are built.
