Someone help me

I have only owned Arabians and I sold my last one a while ago and am in the market for a new horse, but not sure I want an Arabian again because I'm so darn tall! What are some breeds that are big???

What do you want to do with the horse? What are your riding styles and goals? What area are you in (some breeds are much harder to find in certain areas)

It depends on the Arabian. I used to ride one that was 15.2hh and I own one that's 14.2hh. I have ridden 16hh QH and 14.2hh QHs, so it also depends on the individual.

To be competitive in the speed/western events, your best bet is a Quarter horse, or Appendix quarter horse.
