I am about 5.2-5.4
My new horse is 16.1.... I don't find her big at all, then again at the barn there are a few 18 hand dressage horses...
Haha heres a pic, its nto that good, but it shows an idea of how big she is to me,
I know how you feel! I went from a hot, 15hh QH to a 17hh, lazy, unsensitive TB. It's a big change, but once you get used to it you won't think twice!
3rd ride (at this time, he was 16.3, and I was 5'3.5"
