How tall is your horse & how tall are you???
 
OK... So I'm cruizin' the internet and reading about all these 16 -17+hh horses and I get to thinkin...How tall is Dumas...check me on my math here...

4inches = 1 hand
Dumas is 5' at the withers.
5' = 60"
4 into 60 = 15
Dumas is 15 hh right?

Seems like he is much bigger than that...Or maybe its cause I'm 5'2" :roll: So I can barely see over him... :lol: :

So how tall are you and your horse :?:

im about 5'2? and Gingers between 15-15.3hh since she did loose a lot of muscle when she was starved every time i measure her shes getting bigger, just from muscle! :D

IMO anything bigger then 15hh to me is a big horse. lol it seems so far down from the ground :lol:

Ya, but im super duper tall, so 15ish hh is about an average horse. it's really n ot that far down. all i have to do is pretty much step off lol.

ya 16-17 is huge in my opinion. :lol:

THANKS TART!! i hope so :lol: 8)

My mare's about 15hh, and I'm 5'5" on a good day (haha)

I grew up around large horses though, so I don't even find 17hh big...

Sissimut-icehestar 04-14-2008 08:24 PM

well, im 5'10" ish (179 cm) and my mare is 13 hh ish (about 130) :shock:
