Why Size Does Not Matter To Your Horse

There is a bizarre logic many exhibit when it comes to horses. On the one hand we moan at the weight of our saddles as we hoist them to painful heights. We dread the arrival of the hay trailer. As it lumbers down the driveway to its winter resting place it feels like a funeral procession for the living.

But, the power of the horse is something we horse lovers hold in awe. Their massive muscles flexing as they run and jump gets us excited and wanting to ride.

Then we lose our minds.

Somehow while we struggle to carry a saddle or stack 50 pound bales of hay we think we can out muscle a 1200+ pound prey animal.



My farrier proclaimed our draft cross Loki was less than obedient because he knew I wasn’t strong enough and he could push me around.
