    Don't let his height deter you. I did the same thing before I bought my Arab/saddlebred. I thought 14h3 was kind of short and he was the first horse I went to see, I didn't want to make a snap decision and so on...I must have driven everyone completely batty including myself while I was deliberating whether or not to buy him. And, of course the seller told me there was an older man who was interested in him but just for driving. He turned out to be an awesome and versatile horse- I would never have guessed! Best of luck and follow your gut!

    My 29 year old Arab is around 14H or shorter. I adored riding him, before he was retired. Plus, he was so athletic I found it comforting that the ground was closer, lol. I always said his favorite gait was sideways!

    My QH never did slow down and, honestly, that was fine with me. We never won any Western Pleasure classes at the one local show we attended each year, but we sure had a heckuva lot of fun!

    Oh, sorry

    I'm probably paranoid, but I find it odd that he was on the market so long but then sold the day before I was supposed to look at him. I'll be watching the forum for someone posting pics advertising him as their new purchase.

    I'm just so disappointed. He sounded exactly like what I was looking for and the price was within my (very limited) budget. I've been without a horse I can ride for four years... Way too long.
