Im going to add to mine I ride my friends horses for the past 10 year, I ride from 13.2 to 17hh+ horses and im 5'8 and I own a 14.2 to 15hh paint/mustang a 16hh Qh and a 16.2 to 17hh paint/tb. I love bigger horses other wise I feel really huge on the smaller ones, under 16hh but my mom is 5'4 and needed a smalleer one she can't get on without help other wise :) because I like my horses big.

I'm 5'2", I have a 15.1, 15.0 and 14.2. I trail ride and barrel race mostly. My 15.1 horse is a pretty good all around horse so he does pretty much everything.

I had a 13.3 POA that was a great fit for me. And so easy to get on. :) I taught my 15.1hh to lie down so I can get on him in case of an emergency. He's a champ.

I lease a 15.2hh Appendix QH mare.

She is used for low level dressage and trail riding, with some low level horse trials in the near future as her fitness and my jumping ability improve.

I've ridden taller horses (16hh QH gelding, 17hh TB gelding) and I don't mind them. But I'm 5'9"/185 lbs and enjoy the ease of being able to get on without needing a mounting block, even when riding with shorter stirrups. It's also a shorter fall.

I ride a horse that has a big foot. I don't care how tall they are....
Just kidding, but I do look at the bone and substance of my trail horses, not how tall they are.
I am 5.3 and weigh 165. Blackjack is 14.3 hands, takes a size one shoe. Has nice big cannon bones.
I also have a two year old filly, who may stay pony sized, but has almost a one on the fronts, so I will ride her no matter how tall she gets, ( but not until she is three.)

I am 5'11" and I ride a 16.2 thoroughbred gelding. My old show gelding is 15.3.

I'm 5'6" and my draft is a very stout 15.3, I mainly trail ride her. My foundation Qh is 14.3, used to barrel w him no w just bareback in the fields. My bull dogger is 14.2. My qh was 15.1, she barrel and did poles. My paint was 16.1, he cut cattle and worked the herd and did whatever else I wanted. I like the bigger horses. I think I just like bigger animals, because I have mastiffs and great pyreneese too.
