Paintluver - thanks you aren't far off from my size so that's a good comparison!
Vivache - Wow, very close to my size as well - thank you very much for your comparison on your 13.3 pony. I do like the 15hand size but I due to our connection do believe I can overlook a one hand height difference. Thanks again.
Thanks Cheshire appreciate your info - you sound like me. Fell in love with a small horse but have enjoyed the larger ones in previous years.. same here!!
Thanks Gypsy Girl and Tennessee
I appreciate it!
Horselover - really all I plan to do is trail ride, overnight camping excursions, and potentially team pinning.. IF they start it back up where we will board her. They said its alot of fun and really anyone can do it :) So really I'm looking for a companion and one that I can trail ride.
I feel also that for a first horse having a smaller one that I might easier control on the ground would not be a bad thing to gain confidence and get comfortable working around them.
Thanks again to you all for all your information - I really appreciate it!
