From the forums
We had a nice time hopefully we will see each other again
CW, what do you mean that you know to look for larger horse? I'm just curious - Is Hunter taller than the ones you have been shopping for?

Ah, makes sense. There's taller and then there's stouter built. I've had 3 horses that were around 15 hands. That's about as high as I can handle for mounting. And, the thinner gaited horses was way, way harder to ride than the wider, stouter mare that I have now. I feel like she's much safer and I know she's more fun. If she startles and jumps, I'm still on her; with the skinnier horse, I seemed to topple over and lots of times ended up on the ground. Part of it may have been the saddle, but his build was part of it, too.

I feel safer on wider and taller horse
I know I need a mounting block

I also fell yesterday and now I hurt all over
My chin is scraped as well as my upper lip and right wrist
Hurts and so does my back
I tripped on some un even pavement and a man hole cover

Ack I take nasty picture. Yes a taller horse for CW is a good idea. Hunter is only 14.2 - 14.3 on a good day, but he carts me around so we are good. Lol
Plus he is 4 this month and still filling out. He is part QH and has the butt to show it lol

CW, so sorry to hear about your fall! Take care of yourself and I'm sure you will be back to normal in no time. You have horses to go see!

Hunter is so cute! I think you all look great together.
With Grace, A MORGAN? I love them and I have had several. Can't wait to see pictures...
CW. I hope you feel better soon. Falling on pavement is the worst!
Welcome to the new people!
Going trail riding tomorrow with hubby and a bunch of friends and then off to practice.
Means I have to ride Patsy on trails instead of my gaited horse...I will be sore! LOL
