What size horse do you ride??? Poll

I've been curious lately about horses and their riders size. I'm 5'8" and my boy has the QH type build with the elegance of the Morgan (those are his breeds) and he is 15.2 hh I ride western, just pleasure and trail riding. I'm curious to everyone elses pairings. So how tall are you and how tall is your horse? :-D Also what's your disipline?

I'm 5'9 and I ride western.

My 20 year old ApHC gelding is 16.3h and my 12 year old Clyde cross mare is 16.0h

I've always been a fan of taller horses (obviously)

There's a part of me that loves the power and agility of the compact horses between 14.2 and 15h but a bigger part of me loves the taller horses for their elegance and longer strides, they have a tendancy to almost look as they are floating and they can be pretty muscled too. My next horse will be at least 16hh I love tall horses but my boy is a good medium. I rode my friends horse who's about 14.3 and I felt SO huge on her, just weird feeling.

Im 5'1" and ride a 15 hand Paint mare. We mainly barrel race, do some pole bending. Sometimes occasionally we go english. I like her size, perfect for me. I also have a 14 hand filly, who will probably only reach 14.2 I don't feel big on her either but she's also very stout. Im selling her though. Might end up with a huge horse.

We just do trail riding. My wife is 5'4 and her horse, Arab QH mix, is 15.1. I'm 5'10 and I ride the rest of our 6 horses. They are 14.1 TWH, 14.3 QH, 15.1 Appy, and two 15.3 QH's.

I'm 5'10", ~200 lb, ride Western, and my trail horse, Bonnie, is on the low side of 15h but she is ~1,200 lbs. When I was younger and rode English, I never had a horse below 16h. I'm a lot older now and it's easier to get on a shorter horse.

Ok last time I checked I was about 5'5" though I think I have grown a little bit since then.

My horses are 15.3 thoroughbred (with the very lean tb build), 14.3 quarter horse who is a little tank compared to the tb I also ride him the most often, I also have a little 14.2 Appaloosa.

I just trail ride mainly but I suppose you could say I ride english.

I'm 5'8" and ride a 13.3 1/2hh pony. She is very stout, though. I ride Western and we do everything together from fun shows to pleasure to halter/ showmanship to a lot of contesting.
