I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of days now and I want to see what y’all’s experience is. I have high hopes for Stormy, HIGH HOPES I tell ya!! 😍😍 he is just such a chill horse!

I know some people prefer the B size minis for driving but why can’t an A size mini keep up?? If the A size mini is properly conditioned isn’t the sky the limit? I think it is kinda like saying a small 100 pound person can’t run a marathon but they can! Anyone can run a marathon if properly conditioned.

Ok, here we go with the math. When I was young I use to be good at math, not so much anymore 🤣🤣 it took me 2 days to figure this out LOL LOL

Stormy is small 30.5 inches tall or so, I’ll get him measured at the show this weekend. Stormy weighs 150 pounds. My Aerocrown weighs 90 pounds and my bike 35 pounds. If a horse can pull 1.5 times their body weight then Stormy should be able to pull 225 pounds.

Stormys weight 150 x 1.5 = 225 pounds pulling capacity

Now if Stormy pulls me (110 pounds) plus Aerocrown (90) that equals 200 pounds.

If I take that 200 pounds divide by his pulling capacity of 225 pounds, he is pulling 89% of his total pulling capacity.

200 divide by 225% = 89% total pulling capacity

Now if I put him in the bike his pulling capacity is only about 65%

*What is your horses pulling capacity percentage?

*Does your A size mini have a hard time keeping up? Why?

*Do you prefer A or B size minis for driving? Why?
