Need Breed Advice

Postby Ciro » Sun Mar 01, 2015 9:57 am

Just curious as to what breeds of horse I should look into if I'm a large guy. I currently weight about 250 lb give or take, and was wondering if I could get a draft hybrid that I could ride a couple hours a day without harming it.

A big stout quarter horse gelding can pack you around all day. :nod: In fact some of the smaller ones could as well.

Anything but welch or Shetland unless you have really short legs
