:P I might still be growing lol I'm only 16. I'm average for my age!
My old horse Cody was like 16-17HH so he was pretty tall.

Ride more, worry less.

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 am 5'4
my horses have been

Personally I won't look at a horse (for me to buy) that's any smaller than 15.3. and at 15.3 it better be an amazing horse with a massive Stride. I would prefer 16.1-16.3. But that's just my preferences. Since I show/showed in the 3'6 A show hunters (3'9 this year) I need a horse with a lot of step and bigger horses generally have bigger stride (tho now always) plus bigger horse's tend to be rewarded more (could be b/c they can get down the lines on a slow big canter or just b/c the judges like them more)
I also am moving into the 3'6-3'9 jumpers so I want a big stride horse. I find they 'look the part' more too. Big, bulky sexy jumper horses haha.
Please remember that these are just my preferences and I am not saying that smaller horses are bad in any way

I'm about 5'4" (give or take), but I ride a 13hh pony a ton (he is a stinker, that's the only reason I'm riding him). I sometimes ride a few warmbloods (16.3hh, 16.1hh) and get payed to ride a paint gelding who's 16hh and really lengthy.
