I'm 6'1" and weigh about 240. How big and solid of a horse do I need for an all day ride? What about Arabians? Thanks

Jim that depends on your experiance, an Arabian or 1/2 would do you, You want one that is arround 16HH so you don't feel underhorsed. I have a pure bred arabian that is 16hh. I'm 5'10" so I know how it feels to ride a small horse. I am also thinking 1/2 arab 1/2 AQHA would also be a good choice. Also a really good Appaloosa is a good choice if you were not doing Long Distance Riding.Arabians make really good Long Distance horses.I like to put arround 15 miles a day on him that keeps him about even with me. Good Luck!!
