Talking How tall are you and your horse?

I've only ever ridden 14.3-15.2 h.h. Horses and pretty soon I might be testing out a 16.2 hander! I'm a little nervous about the height but he is a sweet horse and I'm sure I'll get use to it.

How tall are you and your horse?

It would be nice to see some pictures!

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...

I'm 5'4", my horse is 17hh.

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"

My horse is 16hh and I am barley 5ft tall! My instructor says that Im the perfect hight cause I am short enough to ride ponies (with out looking too big) yet I don't look too small on large horses.

I am 5'8ish (give or take .5") and Bear is roughly 17.2 on a good day. Everyone says he is the perfect height for me, though sometimes... Just kidding! ;]

I have only ever ridden one pony, and that was my childhood pony. Most of the horses I ride are 15.2-16.1hh, but I wanted a horse I could ride even if I hit 6'! XD
