What are you wanting to do with her? If you put your stirrups down will you still be able to properly cue her? You may be a little bit too tall to get her best performance, but definitely not too tall to ride her.

I just do basic riding with her. Nothing too difficult as she is 22 (but in perfectly good condition may I add ;) ). I go out on relaxing hacks and do some basic school work with her. And yes, when my stirrups are at the correct length I can give her the the leg aids properly. Thanks very much for your feed back! It is very much appreciated! :)

It might be the angle of the photo but you look a little tall - your weight certainly wouldnt be an issue for her though. How much further down do your feet hang if your stirrups are the correct length?
As long as you are both comfortable then that's the main thing.
I am quite tall but when my stirrups are at the correct length, I can give leg aids properly. I'm not looking to do eventing on her or anything like that, I justride her for fun basically :) Thank you!
