I'm 5'6" and Baldur is 14.2 and growing. His full sister matured at 16 hands so I expect he will also.

I'm 5"7 and my horse is 15.3hh which is right at the top of my height preference! I like to be on something around 15hh, I always feel safer being closer to the ground and makes mounting much easier! A lot of people I know consider 15hh to be pretty small but I think the build of the horse can make a big difference. A 15hh thoroughbred feels much smaller than a stockier horse thats the same height.
