OH rides a 16.2hh tb and he's 12 and a half stone and horse is fine. OH also rides my connie who is 15hh and she carries him comfortably too. Vet said it was fine as we weren't sure on weight issues.
Aww bless her!!Oooh forgot to mention that I have a friend who is just over 15 stone and she rides a 16hh TB, cant believe I forgot to mention that in first post! He seems to cope ok with her weight although if she was an unbalanced beginner it probably wouldn't be so suitable. Totally agree with you....I love TBs, thay seem to get a bad press but if you get a good one you couldn't have a better horse.....and in return you just have to accept the odd little bit of tizzy! I've really struggled to get a new horse cause keep comparing them to my old TB and hence can never find right one...so don't buy!! Have ended up buying TB x type baby cause my old girlie can't be matched in a grown up horsey!!
Thanks for letting me know what BUMP means.....LOL
