Arabs are not the only horse that doesn't mature until age six. The spine is the last thing to close up and no breed of horse does that before six.

I don't think it goes just with the weight of the horse or the height. Some horses are better built to carry weight than others. It isn't the legs that take the brunt of the weight but the back. Long weak backs do not carry weight like short strong ones. TB are tall but never designed or bred to carry weight. Ponies are short and have been carrying around heavy loads for centuries.
