I'm 5'0, and Brock is 16hh. To be honest, anything under 15.2hh to me feels far too close to the ground. I feel clumsy on them. As much as I loved my friend's horse Star, she felt waaaay too small at 14.2hh. Even thought 14.2/14.3 is probably about right for my size, because I have stumpy little legs. But then for years before I bought Brock I was riding two geldings, one 16.2hh, one 17.1hh and very, very long. They were hard work, getting my leg into the correct position for dressage was near impossible, especially as neither of their saddles suited me at all.
