    Here are her some videos of her. The rider is tall- quite a bit more so than me but slighter.

    I can't advise whether to buy her - that is your decision. But I certainly wouldn't let her size bother you. Unless you gain 50 pounds, she should be able to handle you just fine. Arabs can carry a larger percentage of their weight than most breeds because of their dense bone and hooves. Plus, she has a nice short back. At 14.1, she will probably go around 800 pounds true weight (standard tapes usually over-weigh Arabs because they are so narrow), which is plenty to carry 200 pounds of you and your tack. There are bigger Arabs, but most run in the 14.1 - 14.3 range anyway. Also, don't forget that like many Arabs she has low withers, and because horses are usually taped at the withers, she is likely in reality only an inch or two shorter than a 15 hand horse of another breed with higher withers. I'm not trying to talk you into buying her - just saying...
