    found something new about my new horse chance!!

    Remember how I said she's a pony well turns out her mother was pretty much 16H and her father was 15.2 so she's got more growing to do so she should get up to 15H - 15.2 Or more! Im excited! And I found out that her show name is Chance Encounter here is her pedigree Just thought I would share!!

    So how old is Chance...? I thought you gave Lexi up because you couldn't ride her... if Chance is a yearling or something, you can't ride him for a couple years...??? I'm confused.

    ETA: although (direct) parents' heights are a good guide to how tall the foal will be, it is definitely not an exact science.. she (he?) may stay a pony, even though that's slightly unlikely.

    I can ride chance ... chance is 5 and has been shown a few times in hunter jumping and If you go back to critique chance and re read it I didnt give lexi up just for that reason .. and it wasn't just my choice.

    I know she may stay a 'pony' but we are all guessing she's going to be at least 15H cause even the grandparents are pretty big.

    Okay, I apologise. I haven't been following the other thread.

    If he's 5 and still a pony, chances are he won't grow much.. maybe another inch. How tall is he now?

    Its fine :) she's 14.2 My trainer said she probably wont finish growing till she's about 6 which is in a few months So you may be right maybe she will grow a inch but I still hope she will at least reach 15.1H

    Heh unless she's magical, I think she's going to stay around 14.2hh.. maybe pop up to 14.3, but I can't really see 15.1... however there's always a first time! I'm not horse height expert!

    I highly doubt at 5 years old you are going to see any change in height. If you wanted a larger horse why didn't you get a taller one?

    Draft and some of the warmbloods are the only ones to really keep growing even at the age of 5. With your possible pony's breeding I would be expecting anymore height.

    Make sure that this is what you want.

    My trainer thinks she may grow to be 15H she said theres no way to really tell and I know Im going slow with this to make sure I don't make the wrong choice im going to rider chance a few times lunge spend sometime with her just to make sure
