I'm 5'1" on a good day and I prefer shorter horses from 14.2-15 hands. I also like thicker built horses as I feel like I balance on them easier. My current horse is 15 hands to the best of my knowledge and has a big barrel and thick legs. I'm strictly a trail rider so being able to mount from the ground is a must if there's no hill, stump or other improvised mounting block. I also think that Ransom and I are good looking team together.
