    5'1 rider showing on a 12.2h?

    Will I not place well since I'm large on my pony? I show her in Pleasure. Someone told me that's why I didn't really do too well.

    No I think this is fine. BUT it all comes down to what class it is and how advanced it is :) xxxxx

    It won't matter at all. My friend is 5'9 and used to ride a 14h pony. She looked big for him but it was fine. It just depends how good you and the pony are together!

    Lol I wouldn't worry at all. :3 I was used to riding the draft breeds then bought a 14.2 pony. XD I'm 5'5/tinier build and think I'm huge on him (Just used to bigger) but so long as the both of you are comfy and are just in it for the nice ride you should be good and shouldn't have anything to worry about. :)

    I wouldn't think so. I'm 5'6" and a lot of my QHs are little stout 14 handers. My sister showed a 13hh quarter pony when we were growing up, she's 5 ft exactly. They were a perfect match. As long as she has the barrel to take up your leg I wouldn't worry about it at all.
