I'm 5'6" and the horse I ride is 17.2hh. I feel like a giant when I get on anything smaller, that's only because I'm used to such a huge horse.

I'm 5'10" and Lakota is 15.3hh. I love riding tall horses and I usually fit really nice on them. But since I have a long waist and long legs, I'm equally poportioned lol.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I'm 5'7 (approx 170cm) and Joe's 16.3hh, Maggie's 16.2hh, Barcoo's 15.3hh, and Toby's 16hh. I've ridden horses from 13.3hh to 18.1hh.
I prefer riding horses from 16hh to around 17.2hh.

My mare is 16hh and I'm 5'2. When I first got her she felt huge, but now I barely notice.

Nelson stands 16.3hh, and I am 5'7". I too prefer horses who are anywhere between 16hh - 17hh. The bigger the better :)
