She doesnt look like a little short person either
That would be a long way to fall. Great photo though, thanks for sharing :)

No kidding! If I could put Vida's brain/temperament, dietary needs in that horse I would be in heaven.

Wow! He's very cute though! I think it should be real FUN to ride (as long as it behaves).

I've seen once mounted police in DC on HUGE horse (I bet over 18 hh). Not sure about the breed (something more looking like WB), but even with my height I was under his head.
