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.
