I am a petite young woman of 5'1". I am thinking about starting to ride seriously, and I was wondering what would be a good breed for someone of my stature?
Im the same height as you and I ride a variety of breeds. I think it all comes down to personal preference.
5'1 is a great height, I can get on most ponies and not be too big, and I have ridden horses up to 17.2 (I did look small of course :P) Right now Im riding a morgan pony (13.3 hands) a thoroughbred gelding (15ish) and a paint thats about 15.2.
Get a fjord! Let me live my dream vicariously through you! :lol:
^^ Hahaha, I am not very well-researched in the field of breeds, so I have some reading do! ^o^
Again, thanks for all the help
Update: Omg, I just looked up the breed Fjord and I love it!!
and I am so glad I can ride small horses and even ponies too, because I think they are adorable! <333
I would recommend an Icelander !
they´re not tall but strong, I ride one and I´m 5'10
I love them but then again, I´ve never had any experience with another breed :lol:
Call me boring but I love them.
Ahh yeah, qh are really cool horses too, I am sure i can find the right size for me. And Icelandic horses are adorable!! I am so glad I asked this question because I am learning so much about breed I didn't know before.
idk i always thought tbs were a great horse to start off with :D
^^ Yeah, I looked up a tb today and they seem quite nice too....
wahhh, so many choices! hahah, that's a good thing though ^_~
