- - Thinking of buying her, can I possibly get her thicker (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-pictures/thinking-buying-her-can-i-possibly-71061/)
your weight is 205lb? if she is only 13hh then no she is not up to your weight and putting extra fat on her wont make ay difference. and at 5'11" you wilo need rollerskates to ride her!
I am going to have to agree that she will be much too small for you if she is only in the 13 hand range. She seems to be pretty narrow so no matter how much fat or muscle you put on her, she will never be the type of horse that you need. For someone your size, you might look at horses that are around 15 hands and fairly wide chested, I think something like that would fit you much better than she would.
Plus, unless she is broke to ride, $500 is a lot more than I would pay for her.
ok, thanks. Pretty horse and would love to bring her back to life lol. I have a son who is 8 and he loves horses. He is a thick kid though so even he might outgrow her. Guess no need to take any chances
I'm 5'7" and I feel too tall for horses under 15h. That's just my opinion, but 5'11" + 13h range = you'll be walking while on horseback.
I say if you like her and get along with her and there is a connection, don't let her size disway you.... connections don't come along that often.
I think she may be too small :( Depends on what you want to do I guess but I wouldn't feel comfortable on a horse that small and I'm 5'6".
LOL walking on horseback. Like the Flinstones? :P
I think 13h is too small for you. That is not only a short pony, but a petite one. I am tall too so I understand the necessity for tall horses... I suggest something around 15.3 - 16h?
i also agree that she may be too small. but seeing her condition "I" would get her anyway to fatten up and rehome. but thats just me.
5'11" isn't actually that bad for 13hh, you look a little silly but they can carry you fine - Shay-la had two 13hh ponies she broke in and she's around the 5'10"/5'11" mark. I also had to do some riding on them for her when she broke her leg, and I was around 170lbs then and 5'6"? Ponies are tougher critters, but as a "regular" riding horse, I wouldn't do it. If you're just looking to tune her up for someone smaller, she can probably handle it.
