Well, I got two main ponies I ride..

I'm 5' (maybe 5"1').. And Prince is 13.2 hh, while Savannh is 12.2 hh.

Prince matches me perfectly! While Savannah is a little short, but hey, it's a lesser way down when she decides to get fresh..

Savannah is the bay and Prince is the Palomino!

Oh, I guess it wouldn't hurt to add a couple of pix, since the op asked.

Here is the shortest horse that I have ridden in a while. She was about 14 or 14.1 the first time I rode her but she was really narrow and that made my legs look longer.


Here are my regular using horses. Koda is 14.2, Dobe is 14.3, and Denny is 15.0.







Then the tallest I have ridden is John. He is around 18hh.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The only difference really will be the length of stride and getting used to a longer trot and "bigger" canter. As far as heigth goes...if ur going to fall 4 1/2ft you might as well fall 5ft! Not much difference lol
