I own one, so my opinion is biased. :) Your prospect looks absolutely beautiful though.

How old is she?

Good for you! (: she's gorgeous btw!
Actually, now that I think about it, I once worked with a 5 yr old perch/tbh he was an angel, a dream to ride with lovely smooth gaits, and I was actually able to jump him 3'6" granted he loved jumping and was a hard worker. He was very level headed and liked his job which seems to be a trait in perch crosses and they're sweet hearts with big personalities. :p

Thanks for all of your opinions; it's super appreciated! I'm getting her this Saturday, so I'll be sure to upload plenty of pictures if I can get them then. I had to put down a beloved dog of mine today, so a lot of my energy will be going into ensuring that she's happy with her new home. She, right now, is what's keeping me from letting my sadness get the best of me, for sure. Fate, maybe?

Anyhow, thanks for the support everyone.

She's just 12, also. C:

I'm barely 5'2" and my gelding is 14.2hh which nobody believes unless they meet him in person. As my trainer puts it, he looks sooo small until I get on and then he looks SO BIG! Better than the other way around I suppose! HA!

When a gal and I were horse shopping she, at 5' kept looking at big horses. She was also pretty round and has trouble mounting. Her goal was trail riding so I reminded her that it was her responsibility to be able to get on her own horse if she ever had to dismount. Her 14.3hh mare is a great fit. She wound up losing at least 2 sizes and was able to mount with ease from the ground.
