Re: Not to be tried at home

That is one calm & trusting horse. It reminds me of the Draft Horse my Mum (& sister) used to ride to school on (I have a photo somewhere).

Re: Not to be tried at home

The Draft is a big quiet horse by nature once well handled when young.

Very nice natured horses the Draft but I still wouldn't try that, me and horses don't see eye to eye for some reason and its not a height thing

Re: Not to be tried at home

He is full Clydedale, Murroka Lommond, Cheviy he has Balwill Knockout (imp) in him. He is about in the shafts.
Lommond is not show quality as he is leggy and his head set on is not great, but he makes up for it in being a calm, obedient wee boy. Jane does liberty work with him.
This of Murroka Starion and he is what they want in the ring.......but is as thick as a piece of 4x2.

Re: Not to be tried at home

. Poor Murroka Roberta - we can't all be as bright as a button!
They are such gentle giants and such a contrast to your little fellows.
I can understand how you must get very attached to them all.

Re: Not to be tried at home

WOW yes show quality

But I LURVE you "thick as 4x2" !

I love long reining, it gets the "walk correct and halt" ; builds the "Team" with minimal "tack/restraint" AND without the rider on board and using such very simple commands
... almost "discreet" commands great for every discipline

almost as great a jumping bareback
