I'm 5 feet even and my horses are between 14 2hh and 15 hh. I've owned horses over 15hh and they are to tall for me. I have super short legs so once they get over that height it gets really hard for me to get my leg into the stirrup.
LOL... When I have the stirups adjusted right for me... Its all I can do to haul my butt up in the saddle... If Dumas was even a couple inches taller I'd have to get a step stool!
Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
Hey ya all im 5.11 and my horses are from 13.2 to 172 mustangs are both in the 14 to 15 hh and my mare is 14.3 but she carrys me better the the 16. hh QT horse does but that is because the mustangs are stout and years of sellection has made them that way . the TWH. mare is the big girl and somedays this 60 yr old can step rt in the saddle and somedays i need an elevator to get to the stirrup on her . fact is im makeing a rope ladder for the days this body says its to sore and tired to step that high really i am saw it on a movie so going to try it cant hurt maybe help me some
I am 4'11 also :) My first horse was 14.3 My second horse was almost 15. My third horse 16.5 and my horse now is a little over 15... I dont know why but I love tall big horses. Makes me feel really small on the horse but I guess its my way of being taller :P
i'm 5'3 and my horse is 15 HH but i used to horses over 17 HH, i think the tallest was 17.3 and when your up there it doesn't feel that high but you remember real quick how high you are when you jump down hard like you were on a pony and your knees buckle under you. chance is 15 and even though he's just right for me when i look at him he seems small to me.
Dumas---the little bug or whatever in your signature tripped me out for a minute, i actually thought there was a bug on my screen but i couldn't kill it lol
