    I'm 5'7", pretty slim (90lbs) and Sunny is 14hh, although his but is 14.2 so I think we've got a couple more inches in him. I feel like I fit him really well. Bella is 15.3hh, I feel like she's too big for me mainly because of her width not the height, I also ride my friend's 14.3hh who I'm comfortable on too. I think Sun is going to be the perfect size for me.

    I'm 5'5' and I'm currently riding a 16.1hh gelding. I've ridden smaller horses and been fine though...I just prefer a bigger horse:)

    I'm 5'6, Cinder is 15.2hh and Lyric is 16.2. I will ride anything as short as 14hh and not look horrible. But.. I'd prefer the bigger horses.

    I'm 6'8 and I'm going to look tall on anythig I ride so I might just as well ride whatever I want. The horses I own are about 15.1 or 15.2 but I ride all different sizes of outside horses. I don't ride too many two year olds but anything that will keep my feet off the ground I'll ride.

    I am about 5 ft tall on a really good day! My thoroughbred is 17.1. I have always liked the big ones. I ride him dressage and they are usually bigger horses.

    I'm 5'5" and ride a mare that's 15.2 and a gelding that's 16.2. I would prefer something between 14.2 - 15 hands in the future. Mounting from the ground is now a challenge for me .
