If you are feeding her correctly, don't worry about it too much. Indie grew 3 hands between her 2ened and 5th birthday. She was only 12 something when I got her at 2 and a half!

So give it some time, keep on a growing diet and don't work her too hard (as to not to damage her growing body!), and I'm sure she'll reach at least another hand before she is at a riding age of three.

I would love for her too hit 14.3, but 14.1 is fine by me! I would really like her too be a barrel horse! Lol she needs too be worked more if anything! I just wanted her to have a nice childhood lol. She is halter trained, picks up all for feet, i can tie her anywhere, she has just started lunging and i have just got her over her fear of plastic!!

It sounds like you really care for her :) That makes me happy, I love seeing youngsters really prosper by having someone that understands them, and enjoys just letting them be young for a little bit!

Be careful lunging too much, that is hard on their young joints. Keep it to a minimal, if you want to exercise her, then desensitizing training is great!! Set up little obstacle courses that you can walk her through, this is a great window to start introducing all those "scary" things she will need to be used too in life.

And again don't worry, I can almost guarantee she will hit at LEAST 14 hands by the time she's done growing (as others have said, around the age 5.).

Have you seen these two threads? Several of us did updates on our babies growth :)

Sonata was 13hh @ 11 months old. Today I measured her and to my absolute SHOCK she has hit the 15hh mark at 2 years 10 months.

I bet your baby makes it to 14-14.2! What a cutie you have!
