Haha. My gelding looked 16hh when I first saw him at he auction. Even my horse-trainer friend thought so when the rider was riding him, until she saw him after we bought him and realized he was shorter. X]

Ahh, I see. That's understandable. But no, you're def not. I weigh a little less than you and have ridden smaller horses without causing them discomfort. Mind they were stockier, but not the point. She has a good bone structure for you.

Your horse doesn't look like she has any problems caring you at all! You and her make a good team it looks like :)

Happy Riding.
