Actually height of the rider does effect suitability because it effects the balance and the ability to give cues. However, its the horse's height that doesn't matter so much, but rather its build. A tall rider can be fine on a stocky horse no matter if its short or tall, but that same tall rider on a very fine built horse will not be able to give proper cues and will have a harder to balance.
However, this horse and rider look to be well matched.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
