How tall is your Arabian?

Simple question. I feel like I own an excessively small Arab. She's 14.1, almost 14.2.

I have one that's 15.3 (Desperado V breeding) and one that's 15.1 (Sundance Kid V breeding). My employer has me work her Arabian mare that's probably around the 14.1/14.2 mark.

Over the past 40 years most of the Arabians I have owned have been 14 to 14.3, maybe one at 15 hands. They aren't giants. : )

I've ridden PB Arabs from 14.1hh up through my friend's 15.2hh (maybe 15.1hh) stallion. Mine is right at 14.3hh.

My current one 14.2 but I had a 15.2 and a 15.3, and a youngster who was almost 16 hands, I was told by the new owner. None of them were narrow, they were all standing in their 4 corners, so to speak. Certainly not dainty
