Too heavy?
 
6 Attachment(s)
Am I too big/too heavy for my horse? I am 5ft 6 and weigh 247 lbs. My horse is a STB. He is about 16hh or more

I think you look fine on her, I think she looks quite happy with you . I am glad you are riding a horse i see alot of people who are bigger riding small ponies .

Honestly, you two look perfect together.

I think you guys are a really good match. Im a bigger girl myself and constantly worry about it. Your guy has beautiful movement that doesnt seem hindered or strained. At 16HH he balances nicely. Good luck...looks like you guys really enjoy eachother.

Thanks everyone! I ride smaller horses,too but IDK about them

Are you sure he's 16hh? And that you're 5'6? I'm 5'11 and ride a 15.1hh gelding, and a 16.1hh mare... and you look almost how I'm proportioned on them. Might be my imagination though. Lol.

Regardless you both fit one another really well. =] Mind if I ask why you think you'd be too big/heavy for her?

I think you guys look great!

Hmm, you seem to fit well, but like Jhinnua says, if you're 5'6'' he can't be 16hh. You fit on him how I fit on my 15hh quarterhorse (I'm 5'6'' as well).

He's adorable and looks happy :)

Not totally sure that he is 16hh but a friend told me he looked it. I am roughly 5'6'' I thought I might because I am fat
