Am I too big for my horse?

Everyone says how 'little' she is... Just wondering about your opinions...
Btw I'm 5'6" about 115lbs and she's... 14.1? 14.2? (Sorry, I haven't officially measured)

Looks just fine. I'm 5'8 and rode a pony smaller than yours and it was just fine.

Nope. You look good.

You're both small, and really... I think you guys look to compliment each other well! I'd say you are probably her perfect sized rider.

She's incredibly adorable by the way.

Great length of leg with this horse. I think you look very nice on her, and while she does seem "little" to me it is the little of slightness, not of too smallness.

Is she young yet then? Age may well put on a little more substance to her.

But I think you and she complement each other nicely.

Guess I'm in trouble. I'm 175 lbs, and I rode our 13 hand mustang this afternoon. Oddly enough, he didn't seem to please, nobody tell him!

Oh, please! You look perfect on her...and she is just gorgeous!!!
I believe people have just bred bigger and bigger the point that a "normal" sized horse looks small to them. And some just "look" smaller than they are...but not your horse. My pony is 13.3 yet somehow "appears" a great deal shorter than my 14 h buckskin! Anyway, I just view far taller horses as too big! Ha!

Thanks everyone for your input and compliments! Palomine, she is 5 years old so I guess there is the potential for a little more height.
Thanks again :)

height, riding, size
