I'm 5'2" and my boy is projected to be about 16HH (he's a yearling now at about 14.3). I like them big and leggy... Only time I get to feel tall. ;)

Im almost 5'10 and the OTTB I have been riding for the last 11mo is 15.2hh, he's not solid either (though saying that he is not horribly fine either).

Please excuse my heel also, I was urging him on, and he was not listening to my seat (We had just transitioned from trot).

Also a 14.1hh Arabian and a 15.3hh Quarter Horse, but I certainly look best on the TB :p

My main stick is 14.3H and I am 5'9". It doesn't bother me at all to ride a short horse.

5' 10.5" Cruiser is 16 hands, Chief is just barely 14 hands, more like 13.3. Both are big boned and take up my leg.

I'm 5'3" and my horse is 15.2ish. I need to measure her.
