Hi I am new to horse forum but it seems like a great place to get some answers and advice.
Heres my question:
1)I am 5'6 and I weigh almost 11 stone. Looking for a horse atm and was wondering would a 15.3 irish sports horse be able to carry me. I would say I can carry myself pretty well in the saddle so I wouldn't be banging around on his back. (The horse in question is 6 years old)
- Do you recon a horse of this size and build would be okay with me riding him 4-5 time a week?
It would be doing mainly schooling and jumping and of course a bit of hacking.
2) How can you tell the difference between lightweight and medium weight Irish Sports Horses?? (i don't know the weight so physical and visible differences if you know any)
