    I think you should go look but not fall in love before you go :)

    Personally, I would not pass based on height alone. But you should definitely look at and ride a few horses before you get your heart set on this one

    If you like him go look at him, test drive him, then go look at a minimum of 2 preferable more similar horses before deciding. THEN get a PPE and a second opinion.
    ditto on that

    Hopefully he will still be around by the time I actually start looking for a horse

    He is the most stunning colour and could well be perfect for you but these are the main flaws I see in him conformation wise. He looks to have quite a straight hind end, his cannons could be shorter, could possible do with more reach of neck, his head is a bit big and in one picture it looks like he dishes out a bit. But Im no expert and still there is no reason why he couldn't to what you want him to with him sounds lik he has a great temperment and again LOVE his colour. You should go see him and if he is a good ride well then who knows... Good luck :)

    If you are afraid of heights but still want a good stirdy horse with a good temperment why not go for a welsh pony. They were bred to carry sheperds and sheep up hard rocky mountains. They have amazing feet the majority are the sweetest kindest pony you could come across. They are split into for sections A's and B's are really childrens riding ponies. A's are the smallest though are a really stirdy and stocky build and would be able to carry and adult. B's are a finer breed and there max height is 13.2. C's and D's are the largest and strongest breed a C's max height is 13.2 but they are built so stong you would barely notice. D's are the largest and are stocky like the A and C. Most welsh ponies have an amazing jump and really comfy paces so it might be worth your while just researching them. I will attach some pictures of all the different sections below but in your case I would advise researching more the C's and D's rather that the smaller A's and B's

    Welsh section A : https://www.google.ie/search?hl=en&s...tm%3B433%3B405

    Wesh section B: https://www.google.ie/search?hl=en&s...tm%3B450%3B319

    Welsh section C: https://www.google.ie/search?hl=en&s...hp%3B500%3B375

    Welsh Section D:https://www.google.ie/search?hl=en&s...tm%3B380%3B266

    Now you may find them to cobby for your liking but in my experiances with them they are the safest sweetest ponies with an incredible jump great for trail rides with such hard feet. You don't need to shoe them and because you have so much beneath you and infront of you when riding and jumping you feel sooo safe. But as I said you may find the bigger versions too stocky or whatever but at least you know about them now :) good luck finding your perfect pony ;)

    You wouldnt squish any welsh because they are so strong. As I said they were bred to carry two shepards and a sheep up and down mountains. But height wise D's have no max height so you could get a 17hh welsh D and they are quite stocky.
