This is such a random thread but thought id see if anyone had any helpful advice?
My biggest horse was just over 15hh and my smallest is my current pony at 13hh. I know that I am too small for her but she is a summer project to bring on for a friends kids...
Anyway, im 19, 5ft6 and about 9 1/2 stone. To compete properly I really need a horse that's between 15.2-16hh so that I can compete in the right categories(a lot of shows over 18s have to ride horses) and I want something I can keep forever now so I need something big enough!
Well simply put im sort of scared. Iv ridden bigish horses and I sat on my friends horse today who's 15.3hh and we're the perfect size for each other but I feel so high up that if they misbehave I get scared. I don't know why but its something I need to overcome as if I got a sensible ploddy 15.3hh I would be fine but it wouldnt really have the right attitude to compete but I think if a horse that big misbehaved i'd be scared...
I just wondered if anyone had any advice on how to stop being such a wimp as I don't care what a pony does to me... It can be the naughtiest thing alive but if a horse did that id s*** myself and I know its stupid
