Too Big?

I want your guy's opinion. Do you think 15.2 is too big to make a reiner or cow horse out of? What do you think is "too big" for the reining show ring?

It's unlikely that a horse of that size would be competitive at upper levels, but there is no reason that they wouldn't do well at lower/mid levels with the proper training. In those levels, training is more important than natural ability. Where the big horses run into trouble is that they usually aren't as quick and agile as the smaller horses so when the competition starts to get really tough, they can't keep up.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Depends how competitive you want to get.

I mess around with reining and consistently rope and sort off my 16.2-16.3 geldings.

Depends on the horse really IMO


Also what smrobs said lol
