What size stirrups do I need?

I'm sorry if this doesn't belong here, but I would like to see some opinions from other tall riders. All of my horse friends are short. I'm 5'8 and I would love to know what size stirrup leather I would need (english). My horse is 15.1h if that helps.

I am 5'9". I rode with a 54" stirrup on my close contact saddles and a 60" stirrup on my dressage saddles. It depends on what type of riding you are doing.
