    How tall is Shea?

    Just curious as to what you guys think his height is. I know how tall he is, he was measured when the saddle-fitter came out, but I was told 2 very different heights by his previous owners and a lady who has track riding experience.

    In summer:

    Winter (not a very attractive shot, but oh well):

    And some recent shots from when I was free lunging him.

    Just get a yard stick and measure him to his withers. Then divide how many inches he is by 4 and you'll get the approximate hand number.

    He's absolutely stunning BTW!

    Umm, I can't really tell. If there was someone in the photo and you told us how tall that person was, maybe we could give you an estimate.

    Why not to measure him with the stick?

    He's beautiful! I agree, about 16hh.

    Assuming that the fence posts are 48" He's about another foot taller than that. (using the first picture to guess from) so that would make him about 60" or so. I'm going to guess 15.1-15.3 give or take. I would just get a measuring tape...we don't have any reference for height with those pictures.
