    I'm 5' 2" and for me, 14.2 hh is the perfect size. When I was younger, the bigger the better. But now that I'm a mom and value my life more, I prefer the smaller horses. My reflexes aren't as good anymore so the shorter the fall the better. Of course, Luna could grow to be over 16 hh....

    Around 15-16 hands is good for me. Jubilee is 16.2.

    I like something that's easy to get on and off of. That puts me more towards the smaller guys than the huge ones.

    15.2hh are a great size horse for me. I feel more comforatble on horse that size. 16.2hh max. I like riding ponies a lot if I'm show jumping, but for just general pleasure and flat work, I'd prefer a 15hh.

    I prefer horses that are between 15 and 16 hands........anything over 16 H & I have a hard time getting my foot in the stirrup (I'm 5' 3".)......& anything under 15 H, I feel like I'm too large.

    The whole not being able to get on does present some fun challenges. But the view is great!

    I'm five foot eight and mount with assistance, lol. Even in my short riding career, I've used mounting blocks, leg-ups, running a stirrup all the way down and have even dragooned plastic jump stands into service xD

    Vida is between 14.3 and 15hh I would prefer she was a little taller since I am 5'8" I like em' small, spunky and closer to the ground when you fall off.
