In this photo taken on April 21, 2014, wrangler Kyle Rood leads Joker, a Belgian draft horse, for a ride at Sombrero Ranches riding stables in Estes Park, Colo. The outfit uses draft horses along with quarter horses for tourists. The bigger horses are better able to handle the mountainous terrain as well as heavy riders. Stables across the West are employing more of the larger draft horses to accommodate people who have gotten heavier in recent years.
