    I hear that! Makes everything easier; easier to saddle them up, easier to get on, easier to duck the low hanging branches, easier to reach the low latch on those pesky gates, and it's not nearly as far to fall.

    Amen!! I have gotten so used to Drifter being tall that when I took Whiskey on a trail ride today (hes 15.2) I felt like I was in HEAVEN. I could get on and off from the ground with ease, was able to open and close BOTH gates we came across, and didn't have to scan the branch height of trees.

    It was great!!! Whiskey is like my perfect size

    6' and ride ponys and up to 16 hh. I prefer the ponys/ 14.3hh. Heck, if my gelding wasn't so cool I'd ride 14.2/3
    I really feel that's a good size.
