How tall are you & how tall are the horses you ride?
I'm curious :) I'm just 5'5 on a good day and can't ride anything under 15hh without looking too big unless it's very heavily built. I always wish I was shorter so I could ride ponies again lol
About 5'6 and Mudpie's 15.3 (:
Im 5' 11" and Jack is 16 hands. Im a guy so im not a really tall gal.
5'7"....my favorite equine to ride was 12hh! I prefer under 15hh personally because, generally, it's a shorter distance to fall! :rofl: I think the biggest horse I rode was about 16.2hh. He was sweet but that's probably not what I would choose to buy. My girl is about 13.2hh, plenty tall enough in my books!
I am 5'6'' and I have rode every thing from 14 hh to 17 hh
I prefer 14:3- 16hh
I'm 5'3" and my pony is a cm or two under 14.2hh but I've ridden anything from 11.2hh to 18hh
I'm 5'7" and Aires is around 16.1hh (and growing...his butt is at 16.2hh right now...we're just waiting for his withers to catch up again lol). He should top our around 17hh, according to most of the height predictor things. I've ridden a 14.2hh arab/NSH gelding, a 13.1hh fat buckskin polo pony, a 15.1-2hh QH, a 14.3-15hh QH, a 16.3hh friesian/QH and a 14.1hh paint.
I'm 5'8" and my mare is 15.1 hands. I am really comfortable on our 16.1 hh gelding though. My dream is to own a horse that is at least 17 hands, I LOVE big horses!
I am 5'6" - 5'7" not absolutely sure. My horses are 14.2, 14.3 and 15.3. I fit both the 14.3 and 15.3 perfectly because one is really stocky and the other is really lean.
I have ridden a 12hh pony recently and he could carry me but I did look to big for him.
