Smile Adults on Haflingers

So, I want to full lease this super cute 14.1 haflinger mare I found, but my dad thinks I'll be too tall for her. I am most likely going to be between 5'7" and 5'8" tall when i'm done growing.
I wanted to know if anyone has pictures of a similar horse/rider height combo, so I can see examples. Currently, I am 5'6" and ride a 13.2hh pony, me and my friends agree I don't look too large on him!

Thanks ahead of time!

I'm about 5'11" and I ride 3 horses that are around 14hh. I only can find pics of me on one of them. She's a QH about 9 years old. I don't remember exactly how tall she is, but she is close to 14hh.

You might want to take a look at this site:

Haflinger Horses

While you don't get exact height ratios you do get an idea of what different types of adults look like on haflingers if you go through all the pages. And when I get home tonight I will try to remember to pull up some of me on my haflinger I had for 10 years. I'm just a bit over 5'8 and he was 13.3 or so.

Haflingers have wide barrels that take up a lot of leg and adults all over ride them. You will be perfectly fine on a 14.1 mare unless she is a super modern, very thin thing.
