    Thunder is already 15.1+ and he's only 3 o_0

    They can definitely get taller than the standard 14.2hh... just depends. Kigers tend to be on the bigger side.

    My friends mustang is 16 or 16'1. I also thought they are smaller ones, but after seeing this one I believe there are big ones out there. Lol! I think it depends where they are coming from.

    Instead of breeding more horses, why not buy another one?

    I think a big Quarter Horse or a draft would work well. However, there are some mustangs that are above 15 hands. I would keep my eyes open for one if I was you. I'm 5'9'' and I'd love to have a mustang someday, I just have to find a big one. Lol

    They have the Mustang Makeover thing at the Midwest Horse Fair and probably some other events, and I saw some good sized ones there. Or you could go with a Nokota Horse. The ranch type ones get bigger and have a thicker build. They're really pretty and not that much different than mustangs.

    Excellent idea.

    If you are looking for a bigger horse in a few years, I would look at a draft cross or even a 1/4 draft. There are tons of them being sold every day at auctions or you could even look at the PMU horses. Many of them have some draft or mustang blood in them. I am not sure that I would be comfortable breeding your mare to a draft stud because IMHO, she is too small to support a heathy foal from a big boned horse.

    There are certain herds of mustangs roaming the country who have more draft blood in them and tend to be bigger 15hh+ but it is really stockyness and strength that decide what size of horse you can comfortably ride. My dad is 6'3" and averages a little over 200 and he can comfortably ride both of my mustangs and they are 14.2 and 14.3 but average over 1100 lbs and have huge bones and feet.

    Here is a site, scroll down and look at the "Confusion" HMA. Those horses (they say) are usually bigger and stockier than others.

    You can get Mustangs that are pretty big... My cousins own Mustangs and all of theirs are teeny and only about 14.3 hands at the tallest... but a friend of a friend owns a Mustang mare and she's huge... about 16.2 hands and is extremelystout and stocky...
