I am 5'5" too and I ride a 15hh Quarter Horse. He is the PERFECT size for me right now. 15 hands is not all that much different than a large pony. So, small horses are always an option. (: If you do decide to go with a pony, I would make sure he/she is a large pony, about 14.1 hands or so. I personally prefer large ponies as opposed to small ponies because they seem to preform better with the correct training. They are also very cute (which got the dressage judges on my good side!) But anyway, with the horse I ride right now, the judges make good comments about how we are perfect for each other, size and all. Hope this helps!
