I am 5'1 and my horse is 15.3 hands. We are a good fit size wise however I have always been drawn to extremely tall horses.

I'm 5'3" and Romeo is 15.1. My last horse, Kody, was 15.3. Gator, who I've shown the most, is 17.3. I've ridden all sizes, haha. Romoe is actually considered super duper teeny around here, but I love him so whateverrrrr!

I am like 4'10''-4'-11'' and mine are 14.1-14.3 but next year I get to show draft horses that i'd say would be around 16hh or so (they are still young so i'm not sure how tall they really are).

How tall are you and your horse?

It would be nice to see some pictures!
I am 5'2" on a good day, about 108 lbs and my horse is 16.0-16.1 hh. I feel too big on anything smaller. If you look at my pics gallery you will see me on a 15.3 hh named Maggie, that was a joke. I didn't think my legs were long, about 30" inseam I guess. Here's me on my 16.0-16.1 hh boy Louie

Me, too. I am 5'2 and don't feel right on anything less than 16 hh.
I actually looked at two horses that were 17hh but my trainer freaked at the whole idea even though I didn't look too small on them. I figure, a 15.3-16hh horse can throw me just as far as a 17hh, what's the difference? What's to be worried about? If the temperment is awesome, why does it matter how big they are as long as your leg hangs in the right place on their barrel. I guess my legs must be freakishly long for my height, not sure. I would love to have a big, 17hh dark bay or black like an Irish Sport Horse...for dressage, of course. However I don't ride dressage yet but if I DID, that is what I would want.

No pictures though yet Dx Tall horses rock though, I went to look at a 17.2, but he sold the next day after I went to see him.
