  1. New to Horses
    Hello! I am relatively new to horses. I have grown up around them, but never had one of my own until now! I rescued a 2 yo quarter horse stallion (was actually gelded today) and he stands about 13.1 hands. I was hoping he would get a little taller, as some told me he would. But today the Vet...
  2. Horse Health
    I have a 4 yr old reining bred QH (she is by Jumping Jack Whiz (own son of Top Sail Whiz), and out of a Smart Chic Olena mare) who stands at only 13 hh! Her parents and full sister are 14.2, 15 and 14.3hh respectively. She is quite muscular and sturdy and just became a bit butt high I...

  4. Horse Breeds
    Hey everyone, I'm trying to gather the average height of a warmblood three-year-old, and what height they finished at? I have a mare who I bought strictly because my forever horse turned out too short (15.2hh, despite string testing to 16.2hh). She's three this year (birth date is in May) and...
  5. Jumping
    Hi Everyone. First of all I apologise if this kind of post already exist. I have searched but did not find an answer. Here is my question: I was told that it is largely more difficult to jump 1mt than to jump 80cm. That is, the transition from 80cm to 1mt is much more difficult than let's...
  6. Horse Breeding
    Hey guys! So I have an 11 month old mule who is out of a (says the guy who I bought him from) 14.2hh Rocky Mountain mare. But at 11 months old this little guy is about 11.3hh. I've done multiple tests multiple times and every one of them say he's estimated to reach 12hh. I searched the forums...
  7. Horse Breeds
    Hey all! I will be getting a horse in a few years and am trying to do my research now. I love Norwegian Fjords and feel that their general breed temperament is a good match for my riding style. I would also love a versatile horse that can do both riding and pulling. My only question is- is...
  8. Horse Breeds
    My Arabian gelding measures 14.0h right now. He is an unregistered rescue, so I can't tell you anything about his parents. The vet estimated him to be 2.5 years old (so coming 3 in the spring). Can anyone tell me what height he should mature to? His rump is level with his withers, and it has...
  9. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I am totally new to Appaloosas - am I correct in considering my new rescue gelding an Appaloosa? Is the a way to tell if he is only Appaloosa or if there is something else? I have no background info on him. What is the exact name for his pattern? He is 4 years old and 14hh, is he likely...
  10. Horse Health
    So I measured my 3 year old Quarter Horse colt yesterday and he's 13.2hh. All of my other horses are at least 16hh or 17hh, and I was just wondering if this is normal, and if there's anything I can feed him to get him taller. I'm 5'8, and I'm thinking he'll be too short for me. He's healthy...
  11. Barn Maintenance
    Last year was our first year on our farm and we only had a zero turn mower so we had to mow our pasture frequently to not let the grass get to big so that the mower couldn't handle it. As a result, the grass was always 6" tall max minus what our 2 horses ate. We found they ate the grass down...
  12. Horse Talk
    We're looking to build a simple open-front horse shelter in one of our front paddocks. I was wondering how high and how wide we should aim for. It will be being built on my Grandma's land and she wants the poles to measure 15 feet, (3 feet below ground and 12 feet above) but I was unsure how...
  13. Jumping
    I have a new Friesian x Morgan cross, originally trained in driving, but with experience under saddle, and quite recently, introduced to jumping. What can I say? He loves it! He's green, but you should see how he perks up when he sees poles being set up. It's all I can do not to have him steer...
  14. Horse Health
    I have a 15 month old full bred Arabian we rescued and am concerned about her size. She's currently 15 months old and 12.3 hh. She's SO much smaller than other arab foals we've rescued from the same place. She has a good weight, but is just so much smaller than what I think she should be. I'm...
  15. English Riding
    Hello, I lease this horse (I know, I don't have any conformation pictures, but this is the best side view photo I have of him) He mesures 14.1hh and he's some kind of cross with QH, Paint and possibly a pony breed. He can jump to about 2ft3 - 2ft6 and people who watch me ride him say it...
  16. Horse Talk
    Hi! I'm new to this website so forgive me if I'm on the wrong forum or messed something up. :) I've been riding for roughly two years (first year was at a terrible barn and I only rode for 15 minutes a week on a tiny fat pony so it doesn't really count) and I was wondering what size of horse...
  17. Horse Trailers
    I am in the hunt for a used horse trailer. (2 horse straight load bumper pull). Many moons ago I owned a 2 hbp and had normal sized horses 15-16 hand. I am looking at a 9' long bp trailer (from front of manger to butt bar) and can't work out if a larger horse over 16H will fit length wise...
  18. Horse Trailers
    I am trying to figure out what size of horse a 7'2" trailer will comfortably fit. I found a nice used trailer this height and haven't bought a horse yet ( i am 6' and will need at least a 16hand horse)...just wasn't sure if 7'2" was to short for a larger horse?
  19. Horse Breeding
    Hello, I am thinking of breeding my Half Arabian mare. She is about 14 hands and has had 4 previous foals. As much as I'd love to not do AI, I think it will be my only choice. There are not many nice stallions that I can find local to me that will be cheaper than 600 to go and drop her off at...
