Why Do People Consider Friesians Hard to Ride?
Since I've started riding, I've only ridden Friesians and Appaloosas. I have a very low variety of breeds I ride, as you can see. When I mention I ride horses, I always talk about Willis, who's a Friesian. The first schoolmaster I rode was a Friesian, and my lesson horse before Willis was a Friesian cross.
So when I mention that 'my baby' is a Friesian, I've noticed that people who also ride tend to say something like, "I could never ride a Friesian!" Or "Riding Friesians is too difficult for me."
Why? I'd assume because they're big, but I don't know. Thanks in advance!
Stay Calm - Ride a Friesian!
