Talking What do you think? Too big for horse?

Hmmm, I don't know... I just get this inkling that my boyfriend is a little too tall for Indie, what do you guys think?
(He's 6'3)


Omg, I just thought they were too funny, I had to share When my boy asked to sit on Indie, I told him to wait only long enough for me to get the camera- was pretty sure it'd look comical. Don't worry about Indie, he didn't actually ride, just sat up there while she walked around and grazed a bit. Beleive it or not, he only weighs forty pounds more than me- which is less than me with my saddle!! So she was fine, just irritated that someone taller than her was sitting on her pony butt.

And just for comparason- this is what I look like on her;

So I get this feeling that if we wanna ride together.... he's going to need something a bit...taller.

Naw I think it's alright (insert sarcasm ----> here.)

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Your BF and I are build exactly the same. 6'3" and skinny as a rail. Indie is fine. I had a pony at work that i could literally swing my leg up over while my other foot was on the ground and one quick little hop and i was on his back no hands. i was probably a little too heavy for him but i never really rode him, just hopped up there for 2 minutes when we were waiting to give pony rides to 5 year olds. he didn't have a problem and would just go on grazing. Though my knees don't drag on the ground when I'm on Touch (our TWH) its much more comfortable with only my toes dragging along. That was a joke for those of you about to scream that i am too big for the horse.

oh, and one of the cool things about being so tall is you never need a mounting block.

Well the horse certainly doesn't seem to mind. Your boyfriend is a stick that's going to get blown away!
