The biggest horse that I really rode was my friend's 6 year old, 17.2 hh thoroughbred gelding. I rode him in a lesson when my horse was off.

The biggest horse I've ever been on was 18.2 hh Clydesdale. I'm only 5'1" with short legs and I have to say, I felt like my legs where going to fall off after I got off. That thing was WIDE!

For me it is my Canadian Warmblood (Oldenberg/TB) who's 17.3, but everyone else seems to suspect he's larger - I think it's an illusion due to his width! I find a lot of these big horses come with health problems. Not all, but a lot, in my experience.

19.2 Shire Stud that was boarded at the barn I took lessons at when I was 12. He was a dream to ride. Manners to the T.

The biggest horse i've ridden was a 17.1 hh TB. He was my trainers 4th level dressage horse, he behaved very nicely. Second to that is my current horse, a 16.2hh warmblood, and he is absolutly brilliant! I am jealous of all you guys who got to ride a horse 18 hh + ! I've always wanted to, i've never gotten the chance though!

I think 16.1hh maybe.
Which was a palomino australian stock horse who was so gentle and anyone could ride him.
It was when I was riding for a lady, that was her horse but the horse I usually rode was having an off day so I rode hers lol.

Gosh I want to ride a 18hh+ horse just to experiance it
