All the short people out there.?

Ok well im 4'11 and I already know im not getting any taller. I also like the taller horses like 15-17 hand horses. My friends call me crazy they're all over 5'7 and they prefer 15-15.3 hand horses

Well I was just wondering if yall prefer tall or short horses. Just a random question I thought I would ask.

Well I am about 5'7'' lol I actually like taller horses but I was blessed with Joe who is like barely 16hh lol. Personally it doesnt matter much how tall the horse is but how much rocket they got lol like I have seen some pretty awesome jumpers (ex: Teddy O'Connor, RIP buddy) who were tiny. If they get the job done that's all that matters but I wont lie, when I ride smaller horses I feel like I am going to squash them lol

I'm 5'3" and I prefer the big tall horses. But I also adore Fjords, which tend to be on the short side.
I think I prefer the big horses because I feel .... protected by them. Weird, I know. But I also love minis, the smaller the better IMO.

5 foot 9 or 10 I don't care for horses over 15 hands much prefer 14.2 or 14.3

Im about 5 foot 3 or 4, I like any horse of any size. I think the littlies are more fun but I LOVE the massive horses. They are just as fun as the littlies. But my horses range from 14.2-15.1 lol, but they r really fun too. Lol in other words I like riding all horses of all heights!!!

I'm 5'. My prefered height for riding horses is 13.2-14 hands. I have 4 in that range (although I don't really ride one of them). My other two riding horses are 15.3 and 16 and I do fine on them, but I prefer them shorter ;)

I am 5'3" and my horse is 17 hands. Anything I ride now besides Cliff just feels short.

I am 5' feet and prefer ponies, just because I think they are fun, but I've always had a fetish over huge drafts!

I am just over 5 feet and I love my horses right about the 14 2 hh mark. We will have to see how much I like the taller horses once I start riding Caly next year.
