So, in another thread (about breastfeeding, of all things) it came up about body image and weight and height. I figured I'd start a new thread instead of completely derailing a thread about something else.
I'm tall. 6' tall. For a girl, that's pretty tall. I have to buy pants at specialty stores. My husband is the exact same height as me, so I never wear heels - he says he doesn't care, but I just feel strange towering over him (and everybody else)!
My horse is only 14.2 hh - I suppose she's the equine equivalent of wearing flat shoes?
(I wasn't necessarily looking for a horse that small, but her personality won me over! And before anybody gets too concerned about this giant girl riding a tiny little horse - we're within the "20% body weight" guideline)
Anyway, anyone else out there overcompensating? Any 4'5" girls riding a 17 h horse? Or are you perfectly comfortable in your own skin?
I'd love to be, I've been told over and over that being tall is a good thing, but I would love to lose a couple inches... 5'8" sounds perfect. Now to find a surgeon that can do that for me...
