I just keep looking at the pictures of me riding this horse and I can't help but notice....I look like a GIANT on her! I believe she is around 15 hh and I am about 5'8 and 150 lbs. Am I too big for her?
No I'm not sure if that's how tall she is. I was trying to remember what her owner said as far as how tall she is. I will be out there tomorrow and can check for myself. Do I look too big on her though?
I believe that the two of you look a little disproportionate to eachother, but with that being said I don't believe that you are too big for her. I agree with Starfeesh that she looks confident and comfortable (as do you).
I just think of how disproportionate those big viking dudes looked on icelandics, and it looks fine to me. It also depends if your showing. For example, the mounts tend to be on the shorter side, or the riders bigger, in western, especially reining. In dressage, the horses are big guys, so all the riders look not so big.
