I know too many over mounted, poorly mounted people.
1. My mom, she has her "dream horse" one problem, she is too timid to ride the 16 hand ex broodmare, untrained,behemoth.
2. Moms boyfriend- Knows SQUAT about horses, so what does mom buy him??? A 3 year old green as grass 15.2 hand TWH.
So many others...
I think people look at the vanity aspect when buying a horse nowadays, and do not really consider what they are getting themselves into. Tom is a munchkin of a horse at barely 15 hands, but I can mount him easily from the ground. We click in the saddle and on the ground. Would I like a horse that is bigger, yes, is bay my favorite coat pattern, far from it. But when it all comes down to it we fit and he is a great partner to me, no matter how he looks(which is darn cute!!)
