I love these threads, everyone has such lovely horses...
Yeah Doc is a behemoth! Reminds me of Arnold Schwarzenegger on streroids! He's solid muscle on four legs, I've never seen a quarter horse like him and even though he's gelded, my mare thinks he's quite the stud

My horse passed away a couple of weeks ago but he was about 14hh and I am 5'9". We did fine. Right now I ride a 17 hand thoroughbred that I look better on but my little ponyboy packed me around just as easily.

Red is 16.1 hands at the hind, 16 at the withers. (We just say he's 16 hands) I'm 5'5"

I know my stirrups are too short in the picture. It's the only good side picture I've ever seen of us. Hah.

Hmm, let's see. I think I'll just go from biggest to smallest. I am 5'5 and weight between 125-140 depending on the time of year (less in summer, more in winter)

John was just around 18hh


Jessie is straight up 16 hands (not me riding, but my step-mom is the same size I am).


Rafe was about 15.3 when this was taken. Sorry it's such crappy quality, it's a still from the video


This mare was about 15.1


These horses were all about 15 hands

(customer gelding)


My horse Denny


Customer Mare


Dobe, my main guy (the gray on the left), is 14.3


This horse, Koda, was 14.2


And this little bitty guy was 13.1

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'm 5'4, 5'5ish with my boots on. Blaze is about 16.2. I used to ride a lesson horse that was 15.2, and I found I'm much more comfortable on anything 16+ xD
