I'm 5'3" (hubby is convinced the Dr is lying though, says there is no way I'm more than 5'1') and I have a 15h quarter horse. I ride a 16.2 warmblood for lessons (he thankfully lowers his head for his bridle!) and I'm tiny enough that my instructor is going to let me ride a 10h pony she is breaking.

Sorry. Off topic but I figured I'd do some networking!
I live in South Perth, out Mundijong way.
Samantha Lloyd... the name does ring a bell, but I can't remember where I've heard it. I was doing volunteer work at showjumping events a few years ago so I may have come across her at one but I haven't been active in the SJ circuit for a while now. My trainer mostly does eventing so those are the shows I go to. Sorry!

I'm 5'7" and my horse is 15.3. My first horse was 14.2 -- it was hilareous.

I know I will look silly on this 14 hh guy I am "looking" at him for my sons 7 and 9 but secretly I have dreams of riding him bareback and not worrying that I might have to get off and on :)

I'm 5'4, and I ride a 13.3 and 14hh pony at lessons. Most of my height is on my torso, so thankfully I can ride wee little ponies. I also ride my 14.3 green QH, and my friends 16hh warmblood.

Shad is 16hh. The smallest we have is 13something. I prefer the bigger horses though
