from what I"ve seen size does not matter even up to the national level.


"size" in my answer refers to the WHIP - not the horse
there are rules as to the length, add ons, etc. of the whip if you decide to carry one

New question:

How do you condition a horse who is not yet trained to ride? I want to get him in shape with the hopes of making my saddle search a bit more straight forward, and of course for his benefit. I lunge him, and one he moves to his new home I'll have more access to trails for hand walking. What else can I do?

If you had another horse I'd suggest you pony him. Then you get the added benefit of exposing him to stuff along the trails with the help of a horse that hopefully is used to that.

You're going to muscle him up better with longeing than with handwalking. Just make sure the circles aren't too small.
