    aww heck Bette,  I tried to go back to the archives to check to be sure I
    didn't say a mean thing about tall horses...  my fingers got tangled up and
    I before I knew it I was lost in last week...
    If I remember, the question was could a tall person ride a short horse **if
    they wanted to**. -the answer would be *probably* - Depending on the build
    of the horse and the riders goals.
    I think everyone knows that almost anyone can ride a tall horse, but somehow
    people don't realize that 'short' horses are often a valid option.  Anyone
    that *wants* a tall horse, that is what they need to shop for but there are
    plenty of us out here who are average height or less, or not very bendable
    or athletic, or ?? and the 13.3 to 15hh range can be perfect for that group.
    ...actually had someone contact me specifically for a 13.2-3 a couple of
    months ago and I put them in contact with a nice coming 5yo gelding, started
    under saddle, great mind and a reasonable price!!
