5'7 (almost)
16hh (almost)

I guess you could say we are suited.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Wow, this is a really old thread, but I don't think that really matters, it's still relevant.

I am 5'5 and my horses range from 14.2 to 18hh, though my ideal height is 14.3-15. Anything taller and it gets hard to get my saddle up there, hard to get on because my stirrups are too high, etc.

I'm 5'1" Patty is 14.3, Eightysix is 14, Brady is 15.2, and Sadie is 15. All close to the same height anyway and I fell comfortable on all of them.

I'm 5'2" and I have always felt so short, but here on the forum, I seem to be average!! Cool! I would like to know why it is that when I ride my 14"1 gelding and then ride my 14"3 mare, the mare seems a foot taller?

I'm 5'5" (though I haven't checked lately to see if that may have changed,getting older and all ) and I ride a mare who is 15.2 and a gelding who is 16.2 or 16.3.

I trail ride, so starting out is fine as I have the use of a mounting block or worse case the truck tail gate. Worse case because I have to climb up into the truck to do so!

Out on the trail when I dismount for a number or reasons, I must look for a large rock, stump or use the terrain (put my horse in a ditch or below me on an a slope).

I've always said my next horse will be under 15 hands. Will have to be a very sturdy little guy though, as I am not a slender person. Lots of muscle (yes some fat too) and large framed......perhaps a draft pony will fit the ticket!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
