I'm 5'9 and ride a 13.3 hand haflinger. We don't show, so I don't care how we "look" but rather more concerned with how comfy my pony is. He handles me just fine and will out-go the bigger guys.
However, haflingers are super smart and will test. They can also get high strung on sugary feeds.
However, another issue with haflingers is proper saddle fit. They are very hard to get fit correctly due to their short, wide, but very flat back they usually have. Could it be a saddle fit issue?
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
