There are plenty of taller Morgans. I have a 14.2hh Gelding and he was by far the tiniest horse in the barn when I bought him. His breeder shipped him cross county to the Morgan breeder/trainer I bought him from because he wasn't the Halter Horse Stud he was bred to be and his original breeder was WAY too tall to ride him! Suits my midgetty self though!

My Canadian mare is 15.2 hands, and could easily carry a 250+ pound person, I'm only just barely hitting 5 feet tall and my weight matches my height :P you can guess by the pic xD So I guess me being so short makes her look taller xD but she's quite round! I think any tall person could easily ride a horse her size/shape.

I just love them! Morgans seem to carry the same gene as Canadians in being great weight carriers. Most are fairly short coupled which makes them better at carrying weight. I could see a typical 15-16 hand morgan carrying a tall adult person. Many big men ride normal Morgans (the typical style, not the itty bitty new style morgans). I ride a new style Morgan at work o.o It feels like riding a caterpillar- I feel too heavy for her, but she carries me and bigger riders than me quite comfortably. So even those skinny little new style ones are still decent weight carriers for their size. I wouldn't worry so much about it

Aww I love them both!
My boss actually just bought a park horse to make into a western pleasure horse lol!
If you ask me arabs and morgans are the most versatile of horses. People may say a QH but when have you ever seen a QH in an english saddle above level? We have a horse who can go hunt, western, english, trail, roadster, and could probably drive too (once he was taught!) all in one day- and still look nice doing it all.

I still ride her working cattle when no one is around to impress!!!
Lol, yeah, her carrying me was never an issue at all! It was really just the leg length that started to get sketchy.

If I could find one that tall when the time comes I'd be all over it! Just looking around, most of the ones I've seen were like 15ish hands, and just for personal preference I like riding a horse that's a little taller.

I LOVE Morgans! I just recently got my first one, a 2 Month old colt named Indy. He is the one in my avatar. For all you guys who knows what this means, Indy is 7/8 Lippett Morgan and 98% Foundation bred (which is very rare in morgans). I am so proud of my little guy, he is sooooooo cute and is very handsome at the same time! He is starting to turn darker, he will most likely be be a brown with a reddish mane and tail.

I don't mean to brag or anything, but I just can't help it!

I am thinking about starting a journal about Indy in the Member Journal section. I would post pictures of him as he grows and his progress in his training. What do you guys think?
