Thinking about buying a horse, height?
I'm sort of half looking at buying a horse now, sort of looking through the classifieds but in denial. Anyway this one add caught my eye for a TB x unbroken 5 year old. That is pretty much what I am looking for except for the horse being 14.2 hands. I haven't had a look at her yet as she is about 4 hours drive away but I am keen. I am about five foot seven, and the owner says she is a solid 14.2 hands. Obviously I can't sit on her to see if I will be underhorsed, but what do you think? Is she too small?
I want to do a bit of eventing, and apparently they have seen her jump and she's pretty good, I trust these owners for various reasons. Just not sure on the height issue.
Any advice would be great,
