Opinions on this Horse?

What do you guys think of Rain?

All Good Things

I'm just a bit worried she would be too small for me, she's 15.3 but I am 5'7...

I really like her. My mare is somewhere in the 14hh-15.0hh range, I'm 5'7 as well and we fit each other perfectly. My girl is an Arab and she's wide like most of them which I think helps her be perfect for me.

I say try her out and if you look too big don't consider her anymore but I don't think you will be too big. =)

She will be fine. My horse is 15.2" and I'm 5.8" and 64Kg. I worried about this too before I went to see him, but I love his size, easy to get on from the ground.

OK! I think she is great too, I've been emailing with her owner. Now comes the test... will she still be around in September when I need the lease to start???

I really like her. I would definitely try her out.
And I don't think she would be too small for you. My guy is 15.3 and I'm 5'9. He's the perfect size for me, so you should be fine with that mare.

I think she's cute.
