I'm 5'6-5'7 and I most consistently ride a 15.1ish Paint gelding. Bear is a chubby monster though, so he feels bigger than he is. I also ride a 14.1 Connemara, a 14.3 Haflinger, and a couple TBs that range from 16 even to 17 hands. We have a 17.3 TB at my barn but I have yet to ride him.
The smallest horse I've ridden was a 13.3 Fjord mare, but she was so fat she felt at least 15 hands. The largest was a 17.3-18 hand Belgian gelding who was so large I had to get a leg up from the top rung of the fence to get on xD Though I was much smaller then.
My most comfortable height is around 15.2-15.3, but man do I love those ponies <3
