Breeding 14.3 horse but what stallion

I am looking to breed my appy pony. Who is like 14.2 1/2 so lets say 14.3 She has some conformation flaws, one being she's LONG backed. So looking for a horse with a shorter back or just in poportion. I found two stallions I like ALOT but tehir both 16.1 or 16.2 is this going to be too big of a foal? I am looking to get something that is at least 15.2+ I know my mare was bred to a warmblood stallion and the horse is 17.0 so I mean it shouldn't be an issue right?

Also the stallions;
I like him because then I can show the foal on the appaloosa circuit. He don't have a long back like my mares. And he seems nice and his breeder isn't too far from me.

Then their is a Cleavland bay stallion. All Eyes on Me but I am not sure about the facility or anything about the cleavland bay.

The first Stallion comes from a nice farm, VERY well known Harris Paints. What are peoples thoughs? Obviously I am not breeding right now.. But in the spring. All comments are appreciated but rude comments will be blocked.

Do you have any photos of your mare? No one can tell you what stallion will suit, unless we see the mare.
Why do you want to breed her? Is it to sell, to keep the foal, what discipline etc.?
Bare in mind that you won't necessarily get a foal with a good length back by breeding a short backed stallion to your long backed mare. The foal could throw either way, there are no guarantees in breeding, which is why it is advised to leave breeding to the experts and buy a youngster already on the ground if you are desperate for a young horse.

I don't have any pics really showing her conformation wise but here are some I have. I am looking to keep the foal. I just wanna do some dressage, hunters, jumping, ect.. like a very versitile. The reason I don't wanna buy a youngster or already made horse is I have gotten a few horses on trial and we have had so many problems with lies that people have told us about these horses i'd just rather breed her and what I get I will deal with, also I love my mares temperment, I love everything about her so if I can find a quiet sweet tempered stallion then I will go for it and even if I get a foal that don't necissarly become what I want it is fine I will still love it and keep it for its life unless something drastic happens and ir shouldn't because I know someone with a farm that would be more then willining to take the foal and help take care of it so his kids can see the baby grow..

The foals were hers but not while I was owning as you can see the one ended up being HUGE! And he was out of a 15.2 stallion

I'm going to have to say, please don't breed from her. It may just be the bad photos, but though she may have a great temperament and you love her to bits, she is just not a broodmare candidate.
You are much better off buying a weanling or yearling. Go to a reputable breeder, where the horse has papers, you know the history of dam and sire, etc. That is what I did with my youngster, I was offered a number of very good mares to breed with that would have complimented the stallions I liked, however I decided that the risks far outweighed the benefits, so have recently purchased a just turned yearling hanoverian colt.
It was great to be able to go and spend time with his half siblings, and pick from a bunch of them. I was able to select the youngster that I believed would most suit me, through temperament, trainability and paces. Far less of a gamble than breeding, and cheaper too!

Dont quote me on this, probably get others opinions who are experienced, but I was told in my equine science class that smaller mares bred to bigger studs don't have an issue with size of the foal because they don't have a litter like dogs, only typically one. And twins are pretty much aborted for the most part. Again, don't quote me on this, its just what I was told (:

And I just looked at the foal pics, they look nice.. the one appy being ridden looks like a great sport horse. I would breed her to someone similar to whoever made the one appy under saddle

Yes you are correct, the size of the mare tends to dictate the size of the foal at birth.
