    I know someone who has a RMH that is 16hh - I was surprised when I learned his breed because I was always under the impression that they were a smaller horse.

    So, they're out there. . .you just have to do some searching.

    My 2 cents worth. Most Rockies and Kentucky Mountain horses take 7 - 8 years to gait very well at that height. It has something to do with the balance the shorter horses can achieve due to their size. She may have better luck trying to find that size in a Kentucky Mountain horse. Just be sure to try anything before purchasing as gait will be very different in each horse as some of the taller horses will also have a very long overstrike which will throw you back and forth in the saddle and not give a lot of comfort at a walk.

    Take a look at Foxtrotters, there are many over 16 hands.
