I am 5'8-5'9 and I ride my 15.1hh quarter horse mare :)
My legs are a little longer than her tummy, but that's alright

He knows when you're happy He knows when you're comfortable He knows when you're confident And he always knows when you have carrots.

5'4" and my riding mare is 14.2, my filly is already 14 hands at a year old so we're expecting a much taller finished product. I've ridden horses ranging from 13.3 - 19 hands (Percheron gelding named Silverado)

I'm 5'5 (I think... just estimating) and I ride a 16hh horse. I have such a hard time putting his bridle on :P

I'm 5'2", and Dancer is around 15h, I think - I've never sticked her. I kinda wish she were shorter!

Hey Pinto... I have to ask A.) What part of Perth? And B.) Do you know Samantha Lloyd? She's a showjumper who sustained an accident here in the states (in my car) and is just now getting back in the game with her young WB stallion and a couple really hot TBs.

Sorry. Off topic but I figured I'd do some networking!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
