QH height

Not sure were to post this
I have a QH who just turned 2 in April.

She is 13h from the withers and from the butt 13.2h. Her mom was 14.1 and her dad 14.3. Do you think she will make 14h's? I know shes small! Kind of makes me sad lol because she will be too small for me

And i got her at 3 months old, so she was never starved to stunt her growth.

She'll grow height wise for at least another year, then she will start filling out.

She is not finished growing yet. She should make the 14h range likely. Best of luck!

Remember the butt grows first so her withers will catch up and she will grow like that a few more times.

She should mature at least to 14HH.
IMO QH's are at their best hieght between 14.2 and 15.2.
I would rather have a 14 hand QH than one that is over 16 hands for cow work, reining, or barrels. They are more agile than the taller horses.
You will not see many reiners or cutters over 15.2 hands.
QH's are not historicly a large breed. Shalom

While she may not have been stunted under your care, she could still have been in the womb, or during first couple of months if mare was not in good shape.

And you can string her to find out the height she will attain.

Horses make me a better person.
