    Oh yeah, didn't notice you were wondering about her being sickle hooked, it looks like she is a little but although I'm no conformation person, she isn't as bad as Cheyenne I know for sure. I wouldn't worry about it but I don't know really anything about conformation so I'm not the one to ask about that. :)

    You look great! Your legs are right at the position that she can feel your aids better.

    Personally, I think she is too small.
    Just by the way she is built (very fine boned, not an adequate barrel to take your leg) I think there may not be enough "horse" to ride. Your heel hangs well past the bottom of her belly, this might make it harder to ride and give direct leg aids. But this is just my opinion, I'm in a discipline that goes on proportionate sizes haha.

    The other pictures posted have a horse that has good bone and enough of a barrel to make up for it's lack of height. :)

    Thanks for all your advice!

    I've decided to get her! She is a little small but I think I'll feel safer on her size anyway. It's not perfect, but just for trail riding and such I think she'll be fine. And she had such a good temperament, and is quiet.

    Sometimes those qualifications out weigh anything else. Good luck with her!!

    Good decision-it's of utmost importance to feel safe on the horse you will be owning. It's so hard to have to sell if you find you are overmounted & have already formed an attachment.
