My Mustang is 14.2, maybe 14.3 on a good day, and I am 5' 6" and weigh 200 lbs. (actually, I was a bit heavier in this photo).

He carries me great, but he is built like a tank too. I think the build of the horse is more important than it's height, unless you are a very tall person. Me, I worry about good bone and feet on a horse more than height.

Thanks everyone Im pretty sure il be fine. He is rather stocky which is why I like welsh cobs because theyre small enough to be ponies( I love ponies haha) but theyre sturdy little things haha. If I do get him il be sure to post a pic asap and also il be riding english so im sure our stirrups are shorter haha

That sounds perfectally fine! I am 5'8" and ride a 15hh horse, I also way about 200 lbs. (I think it would be about 14 stone, though I'm not sure. Dx Calculators might lie.) But I only do light riding, and my horse is very well muscled. ^^
