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 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! :)
