Big Hearted Horse!

Belgians have a place in my heart! They are gentle giants, and incredibly strong. The Belgians I worked with were at a guest ranch, and they pulled hay wagons and sleigh rides. I had a chance to ride one, and it was quite a treat! They have a lot of action in their movement, but such a big center of gravity and balance that it's actually really easy to ride them. Of course, their real talent is pulling, but they can also make great riding horses. Despite their size, their gentleness would make me consider use as a beginner's horse.
