I think you look fine on him.

It's all a matter of what YOU personally like though.

You look fine!

Then again, this is coming from someone who is 5'9 and rides a 13.3 hand haflinger.

Height doesn't really matter when riding a's weight.

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.

You are not to big, you're a skiny minnie! You're on the tall side but I think you look just fine on him. He has some really neat coloring :) What do you do with this guy?

Your a perfect match!!!, really love the coloring of your horse

Hard to tell from the angles and also if you add tack you might look different again, but from those pics he looks like he is decently solid and you look very fit yourself, you both compliment each other well :)
