I'm 5'!0" long-legged and ride a 15 hand, 1,100lb wide barreled FoxTrotter.

Unless you grow over 7' tall. Your horse will be perfect.

You could grow another foot and probably still be fine!

My Mare is probably 15 HH and isn't built super stocky. Well she has a huuuge butt then narrows down towards her front end. I'm a solid 5'7" about 115 and we're a perfect match.

Good for you for being concerned about this though! I don't think nearly enough people are. I know I've seen my fair share of riders on horses who were obviously too small for them. Then they go out and run barrels whipping and spurring. I always feel sorry for those poor horses. So thank you for thinking of your horse and putting her first :)
