Good horse to rider ratio?

Hello, I am getting into the english world more seriously now, and have heard some things here and there. What is the 'proper' horse to rider ratio? For showing/jumping etc.
I am not talking about weight, but like how far down should or shouldnt your heel fall down? Etc.
Thanks!

I don't really understand what you're asking... but I'm guessing something about heights of horses vs heights of riders??

Well as long as your feet aren't dragging on the ground as you ride along, or your legs and reach past the saddle flap, then you'll be fine ;)
I'm only 5'3-4 and ride anything from 12hh to over 17hh. If I feel that I am able to put the horse together, then I'll ride it. Some 15hh horses are far harder to bring together than a 17hh monster that is building compact and 'together'.

So whatever you are comfortable with and don't look ridiculous on!
