I'm 6 foot or or 182.9 cm. I know about this strange tall phenomenon in the horse world. I good friend of mine and I often hop on one another's saddles. When we adjust the stirrups, I'm on bullet 6 for extra long stirrup leathers and she's on bullet 12 for regular length stirrup leathers.
Anyway, the noseband will help and if needed, the dropped flash band will help as well.
I bought this guy and love it. It looks a bit thicker in real life than in the picture. I bought it intially for the style ignoring the brass on it, but I now I really have grown to like brass fixtures. I don't think I'll go back to silver colored buckles - I love the no rust as well.
Hehehe. Yep, at my riding school, in my riding class, I am the oldest, and tallest lol. I am taller than my instructor, I am taller than my riding friends. They all sit there on their 14.2hh and under defined ponies...and I am sitting there on my 15.3hh stocky brute
And in jump club. They are all on the under 14.2hh defined ponies, and I am either on the 15.3hh stocky brute, or a defined 15hh mare. Feel so tall at times :(
