Well, I'm 20 years old, and 5'2.
Hotrod is 1 1/2 years old, and already 15hh.

It isn't a good picture, but maybe you can get some idea from it, hehe.

Don't be afraid of the taller horse. It gives you a different view but they really aren't any different.

I am 5'5" and the horses I have ridden range from 14 hh to about 18hh. Most of my using horses are between 14.2 and 15.1 hh though.

I am 5' (5'1" on my tall days)
and my boy is 14.3 my new mare is about 15 h I am guessing (Haven't tested yet) But here is a pic of Me and Romeo.
I have ridden horses up to about 16 hands and when Minnie is rideable I will ride her. (17.2)

This was like 2 weeks after I got him (I was afraid to ride by myself so I had my mom lead me!)

I'm 5'2" and Stella is about 14.1 hh and Luna is close to 15 hh and she's still growing, but probably only an inch or two more. The older I get the shorter I prefer them.

I'm 5'7-8" ish and Lacey is 14.1 or 14.0. Standing next to each other, I look like a giant compared to her, but on her back I look perfectly fine. It's mostly because my height is in my torso, not my legs.


height, horses, pictures, riders
