PostSubject: Can't stop thinking of this Mare   Thu 21 Jan - 8:44

I have found this horse for sale. I am thinking seriously of buying another horse for a) boyfriend and b) daughter to share. My only concern is that she is only 14 3'. Boyfriend is 5 '10 and my daughter who is 11 is already 5'7. I really don't know what to do. I actually really this horse for me, lol. The only problem is my appy is not really a beginners horse. However looks at this mare's eyes. I am such a sucker for soulful eyes. What to do?

I'm a hair under 5'10" and I have no problem at all riding a 14.3 hand horse. If you like her, go check her out, I say! Very Happy

I agree go check her out and see how she looks, my DH is 5'10" and has a little Paso mare that he rides and he does not look odd on her.

This is DH on his Paso Maggie Mae, and I think she may be 14hands at the very most

I would check her out as well.. Major is 14.3, and was ridden by a dad who is 5'7" - he didn't look silly on him at all... Wink

Also, I was just thinking, if you at least go see her, and don't feel a connection, then at least you will know...

I have you all beat...

All 6'4 of Brad on 14.1 hh Jake Wink



I'm 5'9 and I ride jake all the time without feeling out of place, so I think you'd be fine Very Happy
This is me on him, he was about 14.2 when this was taken..


It's not the size of the horse, it's how they can move that counts Wink

Y'all are giving me hope that Trevor will still be able to ride Bella when he grows! They are perfect right now.

One of my mares is 14HH and I'm 5' 9" and I'm overweight to boot. I feel like a giant riding a Shetland pony but I've been told it's not all that bad and that she can handle me & to stop worrying about it.

Hubby said that same thing about Maggie when he started riding her, she was a rescue and very skinny, it took us a year to build up her weight and trust before we rode, and then hubby had a rodeo a few times Razz After she bucked him off twice everyone said not to worry if she can buck you off you are not too big or heavy for her

You guys are too funny. I am really getting the itch to see this horse. I didn't think I wanted a mare as I am not really a mare person but I feel this horse is speaking to me, lol.
