well i was WAY to tall to become a jockey so i become a track rider.
it also depends on you're weight.

Im 5'9 and weigh 55

Im no longer a track rider because i really didnt get paided enough and didnt want to risk my life, no matter how good i was.

You can go onto the internet and have a look because im not sure on the set height. I think it all veries.

The reason why the apply more weight in the saddle's to how small you are and how much you weight.

not sure their.

I think it's more on weight than size - I know an ex-jockey who is topping 6" but when he was a jockey he managed to get his weight down to 8-9 stone. From experience it seems 10 stone is the practical limit if you want to have success, the lighter the better really!
