Guess this all started when I got onto this forum, I have been around qh's all my life and did't even think about all you jumpers out there with your big tbs and such...I love this forum...whether you agree or dissagree with some of the topics, if you keep an open mind with a bs filter you can learn a few things!

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 5'9 and was riding a 13.3 pony up until last summer when I decided to give him up.
And now I've moved on to a 15.2-15.3hh qh. He feels soo much bigger to me since I just grew about 3 years ago and had been riding ponies forever, but to me 17hh is the perfect height. I love the big guys, hopefully my next horse will be huge!

I am 5ft 2in and a half [still growing] and chance was said to be 14.2hh I belive she is 14.3, she could still be growing. Her parents were both in the 16hh range

Other horse I use owned heights...
Lexi-15.3-16hh
Will-15.2hh
Kacey[had her when I was 7yrs-9yrs old]: 16hh Tall for a little girl lol She was like 20 something when she passed.

Other horses I have ridden have ranged around 15hh-16.2hh

So chance is the smallest out of them all :) <3 her though.

I'm 5 feet even and my horses are between 14 2hh and 15 hh. I've owned horses over 15hh and they are to tall for me. I have super short legs so once they get over that height it gets really hard for me to get my leg into the stirrup.

I'm 5'5 (120-125lbs) with a small/mediumish frame. My one horse should be a solid 16'2 to 16'3 and the other will be around 16hh.
