I'm 5'6" and ride anything from about 15hh upwards. Am helping out with a 16.3hh (for now - he's still growing) Clydesdale just now and he feels really big to me, I'm more used to cobs around 15.2 or 15.3.

*runs back to computer*

I'm 168cm not sure how many ft that is(think thats 5.6) and I ride anything ranging from 13.2 to 16.3.
Have ridden a 12.1 though but that was a one off.

I'm 5ft6 and a smidge :p i've a 15.2hh and a 14.3hh (although i swear he's looking more like 15hh now!). And i used to ride my tootsie 13.3hh. She never felt small coz she was cobby. Toby (15.2hh) is the biggest i'd feel comfortable on. I've short legs so look small on him!
