A polo pony I rode at camp. He was such a sweety but I couldn't groom his butt at the time. About 17.2hh?

17.3 hh draft x TB

I leased him for a while as a sixth grader. I was a little shorty (probably not over 5')... it was hilarious, but I tacked him up and rode him on my own. I had to lift the saddle over my head to get it on him... and I had to jump from the mounting block to get on. If I rode him bareback too long, my hips would get sore from sitting so wide. I'd ride him up in the pastures, and I could swear you heard the earth moving when those huge feet of his thunked down!

17.3hh Warmblood. I don't like riding big horses anymore though. 15-16hh is ideal for me.

19 hand Belgian, at MO State Fair, years and years ago. So big that my legs stuck straight out it felt like. It was summer between my 6th, and 7gh grade years.

He was massive.
