My problem is I'm a big-frame woman (5'5", 200 lbs) and I think I'd look weird sitting on one. Plus, most of the mustangs I've come across were just under 15hh. Not exactly the right size for me.
Seriously? I'm 5'8 and weight a little more than you and my mustang is 14.2 hands. They are very strong sturdy animals and a lot of them have a nice size barrel to take up the leg.

As to height - the TIP trainer that worked Guinness has a 16 hand mustang and several in the past at her facility that were well over 15 hands. Taller ones are out there, you just have to look for them.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Lovely looking horse and it is so obvious you love her. No matter what type of horse you own, you will always find someone somewhere who feels the need to give you a hard time. I have so much grief because I ride a Clydesdale. You go girl and when you're ready, you show the world what your horse can do! She's a stunner.

I love Mustangs, especially the BLM ones.
I am super jealous of you guys, I want one sooo bad but I live in the Northeast and getting one up here is just not worth it not even being able to visit it first. it sucks :(

I have a Spanish Mustang. I thought she was a jerk when I first got her, and now I love her like crazy. She is hard headed and tough, but she responds so well to body language and is the smartest horse I have. She could do almost any discipline, but she loves endurance best.

Even though Arabs are my favorites, I personally love Mustangs. A horse is a horse, so people that think Mustangs shouldn't be tamed and trained are just ignorant. The age to start one kind of varies on the horse and when you got it. TraIning should start right away, but I wouldn't start it under saddle until it's two at least. Some people recommend three, but it really depends on the build and physical maturity of the horse. Mustangs are good for any discipline, but from what I've observed, anyway, they seem to be better at Wetsern disciplines. Quarter Horses tend to own barrels, but Mustangs rock it, too, and I'm determined to try it with my Arab ^_^ They seem to make great ranch horses and Western show horses, but I think they could do any discipline.
