    hey all, i have been riding for about 5 years and am finally getting close to being financially able to afford a horse. i am going to lease first, i am going to look at a horse on friday, and he is 15.2 hh...

    i am 5'7 and athletic build...is "Jeter" going to be big enough for me? i really hope so, cause other than that everything is perfect, as far as where i will keep him and how much its gonna cost me...i'd apprectiate some advice! THANKS!

    Yup, he'll be fine. I'm 5'9" and i have a horse that is 15.2 We don't overpower eachother, but we do compliment eachother.

    Weight wise is not a problem. He may be a little small for you but not enough to make a difference if everything else is good. It is more about how you and Jeter work together than anything else.

    True, his weight doens't matter much. I just was curious how big he was, so i could get a better picture of what he looks like. But if he is a QH then your fine, no problem, they can pull a calf around. it also depends on if your ready for him. if he is a 3 year old arabian stallion you might have your hands full. but if you work well with him that's really all that matters.

    Sounds like a great match! The rule of thumb is that your SHoulders should be at their withers or the withers higher than your shoulders.

    Me and Kelsey


    My dad owns a horse (currently Kelsey-thee horse is staying at my uncles) but I might be getting her... the only problem is that I'm not sure if she's the right height for me. I'm 5'9" (175 cm), Kelsey is an Appaloosa and she's 15h tall. I've riden her for the first time together and after like 30 min. we were great together. So, what should I do?
