I am 5'3 and went through an intial phase of always getting the tallest horses, but have now settled on 15.2 or so being my favorite. Gem is 15h. I do not enjoy riding my husbands draft coss at 16.1 h.
I do agree with eliduc to a point, however it is not just about height. You have to consider the horses overall structure. A short, wide horse will eat up just as much if not more leg on a person than a tall, narrow horse. My husband has ridden 15h stocky horses without a problem, but hates my narrow arab.
