    Leasing Advice Needed.

    Ok so I'm looking at leasing a local horse. He's a 9yr old thoroughbred and is 17.2hh. The ad says he would suit pony club,show jumping,hunting. Owner belives he has potential but he hasn't done any showing. He's jumped to 90cm at home but has jumped over the hurdles at the local race course.

    I was wondering you're guys opinions on if he's worth going to look at.
    I'm a pretty decent rider and can ride at walk,trot,canter. I learnt to ride bareback but I havn't ridden in about a year and havn't done any jumping.

    I'm about 5'6, would 17.2hh be to tall?
    Especially being a young tb.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I think he'd be worth looking at. Can't hurt to try.

    Find out what all the lease terms are and ask plenty of questions. If you have an instructor or experienced horse person, it may be worth bringing them with you.

    Also, whereabouts are you in NZ if I can ask?

    Yea I was thinking he was worth looking at but mums a tad worryed he's to big.
    I think I'll find someone to come have a look to be on the safe side.

    Everyone is on the North Island! Boo!

    If it helps, I'm 5'5 and I have ridden a 17.3 gelding fine. The movement was a little hard to get used to at first because I had been riding ponies before, but I got used to it and actually prefer it now.

    Here's a picture of a girl I know riding her gelding who is 17.1ish. She's about my height maybe a tad shorter:

    Ive been talking to a friend of mine whos alot shorter than me and she had a horse that was 17.2hh. I'm starting to agree with the theroy its the temperment not the size. That photo doesn't look like the rider is to small, I'm a tad worryed I'll look ridiculously small but I think I'll go and try him out and possibly video it.
    Thanks for the advice =)
