14hh is tiny to me xD A friend remarked that the bigger horses are ususally soppy lumps, but that ponies have personalities. Often evil ones xD Which makes them more fun to ride but also turns them into little devils.
Me, I'm new enough to absolutely love the big soppy lumps! Also, I'm not sure why, but I feel much more comfortable moving around a larger horse than something whose head only comes up to my chest. I guess I feel like my hands are in danger or something? I'm not walking around thinking a pony will bite off my hands, of course xD It's just something about the size that is reassuring and makes me feel like I can't be ... jumped at, I suppose. I have a very long-standing fear of dogs and don't like animals putting their teeth near me at all.
An additional problem with smaller horses is that your feet meet underneath and unless you jack your stirrups up until your thigh touches your calf, you're going to be kicking thin air!
