I'm 5 foot even and my mare is 15.3. I can't even look over her withers anymore! She's grown four inches since I got her. I taught her to park out, so problem solved. ;)

Depends on which horse I'm on Haha xD
If my haflinger, he's 14.2 and I'm 5'4.

I don't have a recent picture of my on my 15.2 mare, but I look perfectly sized on her xD

Then one of my favorite boys who I don't own, who is 16.2

I'm dying to halter show him though, He's only 4 and hasn't really been ridden all that much. He's a friends horse that stays at my barn.

Susan Crumrine - I believe that Sorrel paint in the Picture is a horse I used to own, if his name is Dude.

Pictures and heights of my horses will come later.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

I'm barely 5 ft and my horse is 16.1.
