SR, it's a shame! I'm 5'8" and I ALWAYS use mounting block to get on my 14'3 qh (when I ride English).
Mamber, I've seen your other thread where you are talking about getting rescued minis. They are not designed to ride and unless already trained you'll load good money into training them to drive. It's not like attach cart and go, it's also require training, and while I never drove nor trained a horse to drive I bet it's as tough as training for riding. If you really want a horse to ride, better consider "been there done that" trained
horse, so you could learn on it.
