LOL! Yeah, to me 16hh+ is big. Nothing wrong with 15hh though, that's a good size!

Ride more, worry less.

LOL @ me...I had always thought that 15hh was average. maybe he seems big to me cause he's got some weight and width to him...

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I'm 5'2" and Sonny is 15.2-15.3 (he's really 15.25...he's right in the middle)
I can't see over his withers at all, and I can barely see over his back haha

Im 5'4". My pony is 14.1 hands and my largest horse is 16 hands. I think anything larger than 16 hands is big. 15 is rather small to me.
