These are my two mustangs. The red dun is 15.1hh and can easily pack a rider that weighs 250lbs. The bay is only 100 days out of the "wild" (BLM pens in Litchfieild, CA). He is just about ready to start his saddle training.

Oh and the bay is only 4 years old and still has a lot of growing and filling out to do. He just hit a growth spurt and is butt high this week lol.

Yeah, that bay is a solid looking horse...a bit steep crouped, but I like that myself...

I agree that they come in all shapes and sizes depending on the region.

I have a mustang cross and people often ask me if he's a warmblood, he's big and stocky and definitely has draft in his lineage.

I LOVE the look of a steep croup. Don't ask me why but I do<3 Sam Elliott is turning into a fine horse. He is starting his saddle training next month!

I might now you've suggested it. I used to get on him from the ground but that got old really quick, now I use a two step and hope for the best.

Thank you (: I never really put to mind about breeding Mustangs in such a view before. I can see where it may be hard to make any profit off of them being they go for so cheap nowadays anyhow. Maybe i'll just have a few for pleasure and have a different main breed. I quite adore Thoroughbreds as well, and I know they are tall enough for me. Gorgeous pictures by the way!
