She is a percheron warmblood cross! She's 16.2-3 and is very... wide. Haha thanks!

I don't cause I'm short!

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

I don't like them either way!

I love short horses. I think the only reason I like big horses is becuase when you ride them, they make it look like everyone else is tiny. On Brisco - hwne my mom is riding golley - my mom and golley look at least a foot and half shorter than me. lol.
I like short horses because they are easier to cuddle and you have a less ways to fall. On golley I have about a foot to fall, haha!

I prefer the 15HH range. Not to tall and not too short! I am only 5'5".

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**

I prefer around that range too, HCT. Not to short but not too tall either.

I anything that's above 15hh is a good fit for me, but I really like horses that are between 16-16.3 hh.

A guy I know offered to board my horse for free at his barn if I end up getting my own horse, all I have to do is pay for the feed and vet and all that and he knows how and does his own farrier work, so I'd be set! I've been looking at barns around here to board and they're all really expensive, so this will save my wallet! :)

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux

I am 5'7'' and my horse golley is 13.2hh. I love his height!! Brisco is 15.1, which I like because his height makes everyone below my look tiny. ;)
