I'm 5'7" and weighed 160lbs when I had my old gelding, who was 14.2hh and 900lbs. I didn't look overly huge on him, but my legs are really long, so I didn't feel right on him (felt like I could touch my toes under his belly lol). At 5'2" and 90lbs, there's no way you're too big for your 14.2hh pony.
Look at this way: the average cow pony is between 14 and 15hh (which is right where your guy falls), and they can carry a large adult male rider (usually 5'10"-6'1"+ and 175-250lbs) all day over rough terrain gathering cows, or in a reining or cutting pen, and be perfectly sound and ready to do it all over again the next day. If they can do that, your pony can carry you over jumps.
