I wouldnt worry about your horse's height. If you have a horse who has the heart and athletism to do what you want him/her to do, you can do it. Nothing can stop you.

One of well known event riders, I believe it was Karen OConnor won and a 3 day event on a horse who was just 15'1hh.

You have a cute horse with a decent height. Be easy on yourself and your horse. :)

She is cute. Have fun with all that white!! :) I hate cleaning my guy's whites.

I also saw something funny with her back/hip area, but couldn't put my finger on it - Maybe it is the hill she is on, maybe her coloring - sometimes paint coloring does not do them any favors with their appearance. My boy has white, right in the throat-latch tie in, and it makes it look quite a bit larger than it actually is. :( Oh well, it is worth the great color. :)

The only other thing I notice is that her neck is a bit on the shorter side, but it seems to work for her!!

Very cute horse! The only minus I see is too much white - should be REAL pain to keep him clean. :) Talking from own experience as my paint has lots of white too.

she's really cute!
you should definitely post jumping shots - my horse is 15.2hh when he's shod and he's an AWESOME jumper. he's built kind of like your horse too - sort of downhill and just not what you usually picture for a jumper. i say we're the lucky ones to pick up on what no one else sees :]
oh and karen o'connors horse, theodore, is 14.1hh not 15.1hh :] and he won gold at the panam games.

...and he whispered to the horse, trust no man in whose eyes you do not see yourself reflected as an equal.
