Hi all! First time poster here but long time forum reader. Apologises since I know that this type of question is done to death but anyway...
I'm 5foot 4inches but rather leggy if you get me and weigh roughly 9stone. I've been horse hunting for a while with no luck but today saw a horse i really like. Only thing is the mare is only 15hh and rather lightweight (tb type) so I was wondering if I'd look too big/rather silly on her? The size doesn't bother me as I ride everything from 13h - 17h (schooling/work)but anything smaller than 15.2 is generally stocky and as it would be my own horse I'd rather if I didn't look like I was outgrown/ schooling her if you get me?
Thanks for listening to my ramble and if anyone has pictures of taller people on small horses that they'd like to share they would be greatly appreciated!

ETA: I realise I'm probably just being an idiot but as its the first horse I'm buying on my own (parents aren't helping me out money wise for it) I want to get it right!
