I'm 5' and my three main riding horses are 13h, 13.3h and 14h. The 13h one is very stocky (Fell pony). All three are perfect heights for me :)

I don't think you will end up being too big for this pony. Weight is more important than height, and you are obviously very slight, so unless you get older and gain a whole bunch of weight, I think you'll be fine.

My best friend is 4'8 and about 90lbs at 19, and her pony is 13.2. I'm 5'7 and about 140 and I can ride her pony comfortably.

I think that size would be fine, I'm 5'8" and have a 14hh pony mare that I fit on just perfectly and show her. I have also jumped her before. She's not one of those scrawny ponies however; she's VERY bulky..so keep the pony's muscle mass in mind, also.
