poultrygirl, I'm 5'8" (may be even taller). My qh is just 14'3", and I don't think I look big on her at all (she's stocky type though). My paint is 15'1 BTW.

Depending on feed, condition, and breed they MAY grow taller after 4 years old. Both my horses were very undersized when I got them, so my paint gave another inch (if not more than that) after 4 yo (my qh stopped exactly at 4).

I personally like the short and stocky horses,nothing over about 15.something for me,but that's just my preference. I'm also about 95-100lbs and a little over 5'. My horse is 14.2 and he's just a mutt something. But he's the sweetest little thing,doesn't spook at all,unless a bunch of kids literally come running and start petting him a bunch,then he gets a little antsy,but I can't blame him
