    How big?

    What is the largest rider you can put on small horses, height and weight wise?
    11 hands?
    12 hands?
    13 hands?

    Just curious. Are there official guidelines for this sort of thing or is it just what feels right for the individual horse and rider?

    Depends on the breed of the horse, the age etc.

    Something young and dainty won't be able to carry a mature pony/horse that is stocky.
