I've looked at a few topics about this kind of thing... I just wanna make sure I'm on the right track with this.
So I am about 5' 5'' and weigh about 200 pounds. (Yeah, I sound like a big blob... lol I carry it well though and I plan on losing some weight for health reasons) I'd say I'm a pretty balanced rider. I'm a beginner, but where I ride I've never been told that I ride bad. Lol I think she would be honest with me about that kind of thing. I think I've ridden on the trails with her and her kids and in her arena enough for her to see and say something about it.
I found a horse that I've taken a liking to... don't know if she'll be around when I am ready to buy, but I want to get a good eye for this kind of thing before I buy anyway. I need opinions. :)
Anyways, this is Kaicee... a 15 hh Quarter Horse. (photo is from her ad on equine now) Does she look like she could carry somebody my size? She looks quite used to carrying a feather of a girl.
I usually don't like short or averaged sized horses. Lol But I've had no luck finding tall QH's here... so I gave up and I'm looking at everything now. I found ONE 16hh QH, but she moved very odd to me... looked bumpy and sloppy... not smooth at all.
