welll for me it isnt all the height. Its leg bone thickness and strength. Horse I looked at yesterday really was a good 15.1, but was so narrow and shallow heart girth, that when I tried to heal him my heals almost touched underneath him... Had to look down. Humm this isnt good. Didnt help he pinned his ears as soon as I mounted and basically was just way to green for me. My walker Bo is same height, yet when I tap with my foot I hit horse not my other foot.
LOL..... I'm a mess. My saturday night and I am sitting here on this forum, stead of out and about. Or riding over a mountain some where. I do have to say a helpful forum member told me so, that she didnt like him. Ah well
