I learned to team pen on two different horses. A 16 hh Paint, and a 13.2hh Quarter Pony. Both were very nice for cutting or team penning, but I actually found that the Quarter Pony was easier to cut on because it was easier for her to make sharp turns, and to weave or stop suddenly. Granted, she's a very stocky little thing; probably a good thousand pounds or more- but she could cut better than most of the other horses!
I'm guessing the guy who is selling a 14.3hh horse and calling it too short doesn't know a whole lot, unless this horse is has lean, lightly built structure. Most people want a solid mount for that sort of thing.
