A lady down the street has Percherons, riding. She says they are a gaited horse. I read they are draft horses, but I also read that they were used by the Knights back in the day for battle. I read they are very sound, intellegent horses, with a good mind.
The Amish have them for draft and buggy. Many trail ride them. This lady uses them for teaching riding.
Is this a gaited horse? They seem to be in all sizes but around 16.5 hands seems the average.
If it is a gaited horse why do folks not use them for trials, etc.? They seem like very nice horses, durable etc.
Just curious as it is always TWH or MFT that mostly mentioned on here. I am sure because they are proven. I would think these horses if as advertised would be as good but as Sargent Shultz says, I know Nooooothinggg.
The best part of training is seeing the light come on in your little prot'eg'e.
