I really don't see a problem with the stripes ^^ they look much better on OP that they would on me.

OP- I think that if you can get a better saddle for you (perhaps an inch or two larger?) that you two will look much better suited for you. If you can stretch your legs out more, your body will relax and make it a more enjoyable ride for both of you, and you will be much more comfortable! She looks very capable of carrying you, unless you're wanting to jump more than say...a 2'6" hunters course or something. She's quite the cutie!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

She doesn't seem to be having any trouble carrying you, so i wouldn't worry to much. unless your intending to start doing hard workouts, jumping courses etc she seems quite happy carrying you. iv ridden a 13.somethen hh heffy and she needed keel over under me lmao didnt even faze her. id say if your happy on her, and she doesnt seem to be having any issues carrying you then go for it :)

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

LOL thanks for the feedback guys! I know I need a bigger saddle I kinda gained 60 lbs in a period of a few months saving up! As for the stripes lol I don't really care what I wear. I hate shopping with a passion, I grab and go!

Red, my qh is 14'3, I'm 5'9" (at the least). I don't feel I'm too big (and neither she does). As long as horse feels comfortable you are good.

Me too! I don't think I've been shopping for years because I hate it so much! In the morning I just throw on a pair of jeans and whichever shirt I see first and go. This bothers my mother so much that she will often pick things up for me when she shops...which is the reason why I own any pink clothes at all (I hate pink!).

I'd like to see some flowery breeches, rainbow helmet covers, and neon whips involved here! Some pizazz, some apparel that makes people stop and say, "What in God's name...?"! Let's see reflector strips braided into tails, glow in the dark nail polish on hooves, and glitter! Lots of glitter. :)

And to answer your question, no, I don't think that you're too terribly big for her. ;)
