Sport. Right size?

Do I look too big to be ridding sport? He is 8 years old.
(not sure if this would be the correct thread to ask this?)

I don't think you look too big . You might look a little more comfortable with your stirrups down a smidge though :] He looks like he takes up your leg well and even though you look like your fairly tall you look fairly proportionate on him

just a small town girl with a big town dream :]

Alright that's good. I bought him from a lady who was almost 6 foot whereas I'm only 5"6 but I just wanted some opinions. I had read somewhere that if your legs go past their belly that your too big. But good, thanks. =]

thank you! I absolutely love him!! He's quite the brat sometimes though. =P but I'm new to owning horses so I think if I get a trainer that will help

You two look great to me! What a beautiful boy. I just love the roman nose...it give him so much character! What breed is he?

Half quarter horse. They weren't sure of the other half though. What would you guess he would be?
Also I have had people on another forum tell me that there's no way he is only 8. They guessed him to be at least 12. What are your thoughts? I will have the vet check his teeth for me next time

I don't know why but when I saw him, I thought MFT. I can see the QH though, you're right.

As for age, I really can't even begin to guess unless I have a good look at his pearly whites ;) I don't see why he couldn't be an eight year old though...
