The last few horses I have owned have been:
15'2 hh
16'3 hh
16'2 hh
16'2 hh

My mare should be 16'3++ hh and my boy should be a solid 16hh minimum. Hard to tell at this point.

LOL... When I have the stirups adjusted right for me... Its all I can do to haul my butt up in the saddle... If Dumas was even a couple inches taller I'd have to get a step stool!

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 5'8" and Vida is around 15 hands maybe a little under. I look like I'm riding a pony but I really don't care. I like being closer to the ground

Nothing with smaller horses! After I had my bad fall I rode a friend's pony for months. He was the best little horse. He was a morgan cross and only 14'1hh-14'2hh.

I am 4'11 also :) My first horse was 14.3 My second horse was almost 15. My third horse 16.5 and my horse now is a little over 15... I dont know why but I love tall big horses. Makes me feel really small on the horse but I guess its my way of being taller :P

i'm 5'3 and my horse is 15 HH but i used to horses over 17 HH, i think the tallest was 17.3 and when your up there it doesn't feel that high but you remember real quick how high you are when you jump down hard like you were on a pony and your knees buckle under you. chance is 15 and even though he's just right for me when i look at him he seems small to me.

Dumas---the little bug or whatever in your signature tripped me out for a minute, i actually thought there was a bug on my screen but i couldn't kill it lol
