New horse :D

If you saw my other post in selling leaseing buying horses you'd know I have to sell will :( but I talked to the owner and I have a few options I wanted a horse that's 6 yrs or younger so heres Chance



14.2H, rides quietly, will do a course with changes-excellant prospect for the childrens hunter division. Excellent disposition, pretty mover, a real nice mare to move up in the ranks with. 5y/o

Im about 5'2" I belive what do you think of her I have seen her ridden and she moves quite nicely she's a sweetheart but do you think she would be a little small.



And heres Lexi!! She's a 6 y/o morgan

She's taller then my horse will and he's about 15.2H


Tell me what you guys think.

I would go with Lexi. I think that taller horses have smoother gait. Also I'm absolutely in love with Morgans! I've ridden about ten. They have energy, are loyal, and are still calm. Even the two 2y/o studs I worked with. They've really impressed me and I hope she can do the same for you!!

Ya I was thinking that same thing I heard a lot of good things about morgans and I think a taller horse is probably better and I think she's absolutly gorgeous

Can't wait to see her this weekend!

^^ either one of them would be wonderous I bet! The smaller one would be great because you are small too (I am biased to the smaller horse because I am 5'1" myself :p )
The larger one would be nice too because I have heard alot of great things about morgans as well.

Good luck.... such a hard choice, but a good one no matter which you choose

I'm 5'8''. My qh is 14'3'' (I dont' think she going to be any taller). She's foundation qh, so no wander she's short. :) She has one of the most smooth trot I tried, and nice steady canter (and buck you off attitude too). Way much more comfy and smooth than my taller paint with really long legs or my neighbor's qh, who is 15'2''. So I don't think the height matters really, especially you are not huge yourself.

Personally, I liked both of them equally. :) May be try more riding w/t/c and on trails (to see how quiet/spooky they are). And also personality means a lot. In any case good luck! I think either choice will be great.

Morgans are wonderful. I own one and I wouldn't trade him for the world.

I am though against the breeding of taller Morgans. Morgans are originally were about 14-15hh and I disagree with anything taller. I have a nice short sturdy Morgan who is 14.2. I'm five foot one and we are like puzzle piece. We click perfectly. She is very pretty though and would be VERY much worth it. My vote is for Lexi.
