How tall is your horse & how tall are you???

OK... So I'm cruizin' the internet and reading about all these 16 -17+hh horses and I get to thinkin...How tall is Dumas...check me on my math here...

4inches = 1 hand
Dumas is 5' at the withers.
5' = 60"
4 into 60 = 15
Dumas is 15 hh right?

Seems like he is much bigger than that...Or maybe its cause I'm 5'2" :roll: So I can barely see over him... :

So how tall are you and your horse

Ya, but im super duper tall, so 15ish hh is about an average horse. It's really n ot that far down. All I have to do is pretty much step off lol.

Ya 16-17 is huge in my opinion.

THANKS TART!! I hope so 8)

I grew up around large horses though, so I don't even find 17hh big...
