I'm 5'8" and my Paint is 15.1 but he is built like a thoroughbred lol very narrow and I have super long legs so it always makes me feel like I look to big for him as he has no barrel to take up all my leg :)

I'm 5'6" and mine vary, though most avg around 15hh. I ride mainly western, working type QHs (reining, cutting, penning) but also have recently started riding english again & doing a little jumping - I showed hunters for years when I was younger. They range from 14.1 (one of my qh's but he weighs 1100 lbs) to 16.3 (my Hanoverian mare)

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I'm 5'6, 120lbs, and ride a dainty thin built Racking Horse mare (her mother was full TWH, father unknown.). Indie weighs roughly between 800-950lbs, and measures at 15.1-3 hands tall. ^^ As for discipline, weekend trail rides, and during the week Indie does menial tasks around the property (pulling small wagons, and helping getting me places quicker when I need to go talk to the neighbors.).
