I'm 5'2" (with very short legs) and ride a 14h Haflinger gelding (a real stout, drafty boy), my hubby is 5'10" and rides a 15.1h Belgian/Haffie cross. We both primarily trail ride western.

As a teen/young adult, I rode a 16.2h Anglo Arab. Mounting on the trail without assistance was a real challenge. I now really enjoy the little guy...except for when the creek crossings are high in the spring and my little cousin informs me that me and my "pony" may not make it across (we do, but I do have to take my feet out of the stirrups)

I'm 5' 7" and I ride 16 hand, 15 hand, and a 15.1 hand critters. I'm not obese but I am not a light rider. My horse's conformation is good and I ride pretty balanced.

I'm 5'8 and I mainly ride a 16.2 h Oldenburg. He actually feels too small for me b/c he's only 4 and has yet to really fill out much. He's narrow as a post! I also have a 15.3 TB who is a bit rotund and I feel we're a much better fit.

5'3, 135+, on Rick who's 14.2 and stocky, my avatar. I LOVE being able to just hop on him and go, especially bareback.
For fun I get thrown on our 17h+, 1,500lb+. Clydesdale, I feel like I'm a fly! My toes hardly reach mid shoulder! My greatest love was 16h and looked more like a draft than a QH. My husband refused to let me ride him english because then I weighed 110 and my tiny saddle and I looked crazy funny. Especially next to him 6'4 on his 15h mare, always looked like we should have switched mounts!

I'm 5'3, on a good day, and my paints are 13.2 and 16.2. Little one is older, but we've only ever done pleasure riding. Big one I ride western, both playday events and ranch events.

Im 5 feet exactly and I have a thoroughbred stud that will mature around 16 -17 hh.
He's 15.2 at a year and a half and growing like crazy.
