    I don't think you're too heavy or that your horse would have any problems with your height/weight.

    However, if your horse is narrow, at 5'10 you will look underhorsed, if you're worried about that.

    I am not saying you are too big but I wonder how you are comfortable on such a short horse at your height? I rode a 14.2 hand Arabian a few times to show her for a client years ago. I am 5' 6 1/2" tall I felt like I was the horse. Weight wasn't an issue as at that time I was maybe 105 110 pounds but I felt way way too tall. I guess I am just more comfortable on a taller horse 16 hands and up. Nobody seemed to think I looked to bit on the smaller horses but I felt too big. Maybe it was just in my head. Ha ha Maybe it is just what we get used to.

    Height is only an issue for us riders, as we have to tuck our legs. What matters to the horse is weight.

    You are fine.
