So I've been taking my time looking for a new horse for myself and my boyfriend (more for me but i'll be teaching him to ride as well). If i'm able to board at my friend's place the bf will probably be riding the friend's horses more than mine.
That being said - I keep finding Arabians that are all about 14.3 HH and such. My last arab was 15HH and I had her from the time I was 10 till I was 18. I really didn't mind her height but I did have to stretch a good bit to get to the stirrup!
I'm 5'5 and about 150 (I lift weights a lot.. I'm athletic build not out of shape kind.. but I guess weight is weight..)
The b/f is 5'10 and 190.
Think I should keep looking for 15HH and taller or do you think 14.3 may be ok? I think it would be fine for me - not sure about him.
