I am 5'8 and my mare is around 16.2hh, haven't measured with totally accurate means :-p

I like a bigger horse but I have ridden/ trained my share of 14hh and up horses. Try to stay away from ponies, just a touch to similar to a clown riding a tiny bike :-p

Wow duffyduck - that is insanely tall! The tallest I've ever ridden was about 17.2 and I felt so far away from the ground! You must need a step ladder to get on her

JJ- 15.3

And I am 5'1

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

LOL kiwi I do use a mounting block.

This one time...

I was about to teach from horse back, and the girl was moutning from the ground and couldn't do it, so I got off to show her how to do it.
I then had to lengthen my stirrups.

Then she walked off.

When I finally DID get on, it felt like I had dislocated my hip!!
