I am 5'6.5 and my horse is about 14.3h. He is pretty narrow so my leg is right at his 'elbow'. The biggest horse I've ridden is 16h... I would almost rather be a giant than a little bird perched on top lol.

I adore a big tb or wb though!

I'm 5'1". My smallest horse is 15.2hh and my tallest is close to 17. I personally prefer taller horses because I have longer legs and a tall horse makes me appear more in proportion. However, I'm fine on smaller horses too.

I'm 6' thin build and have a 15.2 quarter horse mare. I feel comfortable on her. Smallest at my current height would probably be a 13.3 haflinger and tallest maybe a 16 something saddlebred my friend had?
