Per the RMHA website:
The RMHA By-Laws require that the height of Rocky Mountain Horse be no less than 58 inches (14.2 hands) and no more that 64 inches (16.0 hands).
16 hands is the maximum allowable height for breed standard, most breeders prefer not to push their luck and will gear their programs to 15.2 at most. I am not a fan of *******izing the breed standard to try and suit the preference/whim of others (ie the monster GSDs that are anything but what a GSD is meant to be)
