Small, Medium, or Large?

The running joke with my horses.........

Would you like Small, Medium, or Large?

Wayne, Lady, and Cody

13.2 hands, 15 hands, and 16 hands


  1. I come from the hunter/jumper world, where a lot of the horses are big. My Maisie, at 16.2, isn't even all that big in that world. Dawn is 15.2. My next horse will be between 15 and 15.2 (I hope) - easier for an older lady to mount from the ground!

  2. Kate, it was pretty crazy going from riding Wayne to riding Cody, due to the sheer size difference. lol! And as much as I love Wayne and Lady, I'm much more comfortable on Cody. I definitely prefer 16 hands or taller, mainly because I'm fairly tall and have really long legs. LOL!

    Sarah, I had lined them up in the tie stalls one day for an "assembly line" grooming session, and was like, hmmm....small, medium, large. I had to take a picture and it's been a joke ever since! LOL!
