Please post pictures
What pictures is it you are wanting us to post that would tell you if you are too tall for your horse
The best way for us to assess whether you fit nicely on your horse or not would be for you to post pictures of you riding your horse. There really is no magic formula of this many hands fits with this height of a person, it is about the individual horse and rider.

I'm 5'9 and ride a 14.3 hand mustang!
I don't think you're too tall, but pictures would definitely help.

Height is only part of the equation. If the horse is spindly and delicate you might be too big for it.

However, we can't make any kind of informed opinion without pictures.

EDIT: Oh and you said you wanted pictures? I'm assuming that you meant pictures of tall people and their "short horse".

I'm short with short horses, so posting pictures of me on mine wouldn't do any good!

I'm 5'8" and my Arab measured in at 14.1 and taped at only 821lbs. I like how I fit on her. I'm closer to the ground haha.

I'm 5'9" and my qh is 14'3" with short legs. She doesn't look too short and I don't look too tall on her either. So I wouldn't worry about being too tall! Lol!

I'm seeing the dreaded "red x" instead of your photo -- I find it easiest to use a 3rd party photo hoster such as Photobucket, etc and just using the IMG coding that they pre-format on there to copy/paste the pictures into my posts
