Sport. Right size?
 
Do i look too big to be ridding sport? He is 8 years old.
(not sure if this would be the correct thread to ask this?)

No, you don't look too big!

I dont think you look too big . You might look a little more comfortable with your stirrups down a smidge though :] He looks like he takes up your leg well and even though you look like your fairly tall you look fairly proportionate on him

SystemFreak 12-01-2011 06:26 PM

Alright that's good. i bought him from a lady who was almost 6 foot whereas I'm only 5"6 but I just wanted some opinions. I had read somewhere that if your legs go past their belly that your too big. But good, thanks. =]

Hahaha...I'm 5" 6' and my mare is 14.2, I'm sure she thinks I'm too big, but too bad so sad!

I think you look just right for him. He looks like a cutie :D

SystemFreak 12-01-2011 06:29 PM

thank you! I absolutely love him!! he's quite the brat sometimes though. =P but I'm new to owning horses so I think if I get a trainer that will help

You two look great to me! What a beautiful boy. I just love the roman nose...it give him so much character! What breed is he?

SystemFreak 12-01-2011 06:37 PM

Half quarter horse. They weren't sure of the other half though. What would you guess he would be?
Also i have had people on another forum tell me that there's no way he is only 8. They guessed him to be at least 12. What are your thoughts? I will have the vet check his teeth for me next time

Endiku 12-01-2011 07:18 PM

I dont know why but when I saw him, I thought MFT. I can see the QH though, you're right.

As for age, I really can't even begin to guess unless I have a good look at his pearly whites ;) I don't see why he couldn't be an eight year old though...
