My boyfriend's sister has a paint mare with great breeding that's 16.1, she's just learnt that she can rear up & flip over & hurt someone. She's not very safe. Gorgeous mare though, just not a riding horse anymore. I'm just in love with big horses! I have a 17H Thoroughbred gelding & I don't know what it is-- maybe because I'm 5'2" I like having a big horse because I'm bigger than most then! I have horses ranging from 14.3 to 17H so I have them all. Had a 9H pony & a 14H spotted saddle horse mare but I sold her to a little girl. :) I'm really looking for something to stand out in the western show ring. I've found 16-17.3H Paint's but geez they are like 10 grand & up. So yeah. I'm not made of money but I sure wish I was ha.
Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high, keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky, & live like you aint afraid to die, & don't be scared, just enjoy your ride.
