    I'm 5'6" and the horses I ride are between 15 and 15.3, but they seem pretty tall to me!

    I'm 5'4. My current mares are both 15hh. I have ridden 13.2-18.2hh, and I have no problem with any height, excepting the taller ones are harder to get on.

    I find the width of the rib cage to be one of the biggest factors in wether I am comfortable on a horse or not.

    I am 5.9 (or 8?). Casey is 13.2... she is very round (even if she is underweight- it is natural from have 4 foals or so) so I actually don't look bad on her. Candy is 15.2. I got stuck with the shorties and I am tall! I don't think I have posted on here, but if I have, forgive me!

    But they are big barreled...that takes all the leg. Of course, when you get off after a long ride, you walk like the bow-legged cowboys in the cartoons.

    I am 5'6" and my horse is 19 hands. Yes, I do use a ladder to get onto him!

    I'm barely 5'0 and my horses range from 15'0 to 15'2 hands. I think all of them are a pretty good height, but I would love a taller horse. I got the chance to ride a 17'2 hand gelding before and LOVED it! His legs ended at my armpits, LOL! Someday... (Preferably before I no longer bounce, haha)

    I'm 5'6" and my lesson horse is 16 hands. He's a big quarter horse. I won't even try getting up without the mounting block. It's going to be the strangest thing in the world if/when I eventually ride a shorter horse down the line! O_O

    When I show jumped at 8 years old I was on a 16hh Arabian (MONSTER).

    After a ten year break, I'm 5'7 on a 15hh horse. I feel like a giant on him, but he's won my heart and I would never trade him for more height.

    I'm around 4'8" and Midna is probably around 15-16 hands haven't measured her yet, planning on doing it today (:

    I cannot even begin to see over her back XD

    I love big horses, a Shire is my absolute dream horse ;D
