Sleepy Pony.

Big mean horse.

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

I will have to find pictures but my main girl is 14hh if she is a little long in the toe, hubby is 6 foot of pure leg. When he rides her his legs nearly drag on the ground. He rides a nearly 17hh clyde/QH cross and even on her he looks to tall, just because of those stilts he has for legs!

DH' s first horse was a Haflinger New Forest cross. 14 hands. But he was also 14 hands wide.....took a lot of leg length away

Yep. My little mare is just over 15.1, and depending on the angle of the picture and who is beside her, she either looks normal sized or pony sized.
My massage therapist friend dwarfed Ronan (16.3hh) and I can only imagine what he's going to look like next to Zoe..

somewhere in my dad's house is a photo of him on my old 14.2 hh gelding. my dad is 6 foot 1, with what i call a 'spider body' - long arms and legs and short torso (like me). dad's feet are nearly down by my Boo's knees, lol. if i ever come across the photo i will definitely post it here!

My first horse was pony sized (QHXArab) and i'm fairly tall so I was always thought I'd break her. My next two were in the 15 hand range. we didn't look so out of proportion then I got involved with drafts. I spent years dealing with them exclusively and quickly got over feeling dwarfed. The first saddle horse I had after that had ATTITUDE I was informed and I was warned there'd be issues but there are advantages to working with the bigs. I never blinked and he was buffaloed into believing I was unquestionably top horse in the pasture.

My gelding is 15 hh and a big thick stocky horse. I'm 5'1 my moms 5'3 and we were pretty much the only ones to ride him since I've owned him. Then one day I let my step dad ride him since I had to work another horse to. He made my big horse look like a pony! He's 6'3" and it's mostly legs, his legs reached past the girth lol
