I am 5'3" and 120lbs I ride Medium and Large ponies, to 17+hh horses, depends on what I have to ride that day.

My personal horse is 16.2 and I think we're about the perfect size for each other.

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.

Im 5'7 and ride a 16.3hh warmblood. I know what you mean about feeling big, i've ridden horses like that. for me, personally, its not so much how tall the horse is, but the horse's build. Before i bought my warmblood, i tried a 16.3 arabian, both are the same height, but i felt signifigantly larger on the arabian.^-^

I am 5'7'' or so and I ride a 15 hand welsh cross, before that I had a 16 hand QH mare and a 16 hand TB gelding. I will never ride anything under 15 hands, and actually have found that I prefer horses around 15 hands.

I'm 170cm. I have always been a fan of small horses and ponies. Mu ideal height is about 14.1/14.2 - bundy is 15.2h and I wish he would shrink about three inches! My new pony is 13.3h and I only feel a tiny bit big on her. I made an offer on a 12.3h pony mare - very narrow, but strong.
