View Full Version : Estimate height for my horse?
29th July 2011, 08:09 PM
I know it may not be totally reliable or anything, but I was wondering as to what height my horse my grow to?
He's a four year old ex racehorse and already around 16.1hh and has very high withers.
I'm only 5'1 so already he's quite tall compared, haha! :)
Thanks in advance x

Hmm, I'd say 16.1hh. I find with TB's once they're 4 don't tend to grow much more, just their bums come up a bit as they fill out, so he may end up looking and riding bigger but I'd imagine his wither will stay at 16.1hh.

I wouldn't say he will grow much more, especially if hes been worked hard as a baby, I find this can stunt their growth.

Ditto, tbs mature pretty early and I expect he will do a lot of filling out now rather than height wise. But you never know, he may grow a couple more centimetres!

Thank you all :)
I've had him since he was 3 and height wise he has grown a little, but the past few months he's looking bigger probably because he is filling out more and gaining more muscle :) Thanks! :)

He'll prob stay the same height now as others have said tbs mature quite early you will prob notice a change in shape as he gets older though. Ditto above deff need more pictures :D x

Chescar - yes it's Blue! :) We're doing fab thankyou! He can be a bit of a handful at times but I can't complain considering he's still only a baby (4)! I cannot believe how far he's come and improved in such a short space of time. He's a real pleasure to own.
Rhea - Thank you very much! and yes I know :( I'm going to be a lot more active from now on! :)
