If that is you riding in the pictures, then I absolutely think you are a perfect match for each other. I think all too often people think they need these massive horses and these tall, lanky horses. When in fact, I believe a horse should fit you as the rider. And by this I mean your legs should fit nicely around the barrel, and you should be able to maneuver the horse easily with your aids.
I have ridden ponies, and large horses. I am only 5'2", and although I feel confident no matter the size of the horse, over my many years I find it is always easier to maneuver a horse that is more fitting to my size, somewhere between 15h-15.3h.
Anyhow, that's my two cents. I think you fit each other perfectly. :)
