I'm 5'2" and a half! (don't forget that half inch ) and my horses are 15 hh and 14.3 hh. I have gotten up on a 16hh but it was a stretch and I was younger and more flexible back then.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

I'm 5'7" and my Percheron/paint gelding is currently 15.3hh at the withers (16hh at the butt), but he's only two. Depending on which method of height prediction you go with, he'll mature anywhere from 16.3hh to 17.2hh.

Yea, I guess it really just depends on the build of the horse, thankfully my boy is wide and stout built like a QH, otherwise with my long legs im sure I would feel as if I would almost tough the ground with them, since there is nothing to really takeup your legs.

And I forgot to say that we just trail ride right now in an Aussie saddle, plus do some flat work in the arena (W/T only). Silly me. Hoping one day to event, though...and maybe try our hand at team sorting, even though MHFoundationQuarters thinks the steers will just be able to walk right under Aires.

I am 5'5, 135 pounds and I ride western, mostly ranch type work. I have ridden horses ranging from 13 to 18 hands and my horse size of choice is 14-15 hands and stocky. Since I rope, I like to have a horse that has the muscle to pull whatever I ask him to, but roping is easier off of a shorter horse...especially heeling. LOL

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
