    I'm about 5'5", and Tristan is just a hair under 16.3hh. He seems to get bigger every day. At five year old, I HOPE he's stopped going up, but he just keeps adding muscle. I always wanted a 16.1hh TB type...now I have a 16.3hh tank of a warmblood! Oh, well. I think we look fine together, and he feels great. He's not really a "heavy" horse to ride.

    Not a typo. His idea of a joke. It is sort of a running joke at the barn. I like to daydream that she is 16 hands (NOT) and he likes to tease me and tell me she is 14.4.

    He's fat though, so My leg is taken up a little more than I'd like, but still, he's a perfect match.

    We also have the same color hair! (the red that is [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] )

    I am 5'4", and both my horses are about 16.1hh. However, I have a long torso, so we look just right together [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I am 5'0" and ride a deep girthed 14.3 Morgan. He is the perfect size for me, I think. (By the way, he THINKS he is 16 hands easy...)

    I don't know how tall I am and I don't know how tall Tyke is. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] We're both under 16hh for sure, though!

    I'm 5'10" and my horse is 16.2h. I'm mostly legs and pretty lanky so I feel most comfortable on horses 16.1 and up. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I'm about 5'5", my daughter is about 5'7", and our horse is 16h. He's not skinny though.
    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... timey wimey... stuff.

    My ClydeXTB Elephant Boy aka Genuine Draft is 17.3 1/2 and The Evil White Witch aka Gracious Me is 15.2 1/2. I am just about 5'7" with very short legs. My theory when buying the big guy is that his but will ALWAYS look wider than mine. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    Jumpthemoon: that's a great pic of you and chaz!

    My mare is 15.1hh and i am 16hh (5'4"). I have ridden a horse that's 16.2 and looked okay. Rode a 17.1hh horse...was very different dismounting that one...break out the climbing gear!

    I'm 4'10'' and my Large Junior is 16.2, I can still do the small ponies size wise though.
