My stud is a 13.2h sport pony. I am only looking to breed LC this season, and I dont know how tall is to tall for him... I dont want to book a mare that is to tall. What do you think would be his height limit?

I have a 13.2 pony stud too that I have been using on two mares that are 15 maybe 15.1. He has had some experience with a couple of ponies first. He has learned to work around his heighth problem. One way is that either he asks or the mares know and they will squat lower for him if he can't hit the target.
If you think that it will be a problem for him without having previous experience build him a "docking ramp" for them. Just a small hole in the ground about 6-12 inches for the mare's hind feet would help out. Building a platform would work too but more cost involved and then you have a problem with other accidents happening.

You could try covering on a slope with the mare facing down hill.

But I must say, the hole that Terry suggested works very well. The main problem is keeping the mare in it. Lol.
