    He really does love it, and I enjoy working with him! I should add that I didn't mean to sound discriminatory about his size, I just haven't come into contact with many small horses in a very long time and so have nothing with which to compare him with.

    But your comments are uplifting guys, I must start preparing him for a gruelling hacking regime!

    Sarah, you never came across as discriminatory whatsoever in my opinion. And just because 1 pony out of thooouusssaaannndss made it to Rolex, doesn't mean much - it goes with any breed of horse, any size of horse - they have to have the heart, the want, the conformation and the ability to do so.

    Sarah, you know very well that any horse can do lower levels - so go, have fun and enjoy your time together. If he goes beyond that, that would be absolutely fantabulous for the both of you, if not - so what :)

    Oh good, just checking

    I don't have huge aspirations for him, honestly I would just like to get him out there doing something so that some little kid can have their dream Christmas present: A lil jumpin pony!!

    Eeeek he is so frigging cute! And with a good attitude? Sheesh what a find im used to bratty ponies lol. But yes I say go for it. He seems to be a willing candidate and able to try anything you ask of him so why not?

    Lol to the running out of neck comment - I know that from this one bratty pony we had here. I could literally grab the bit sans reins when he was bad to make him listen - just by being in 2pt - no leaning on the neck necessary haha!!!!

    Ha ha, that is a good trick, I must remember if the cheeky little monster ever decides to try his hand at being a brat ha ha. Either that or I could just slip my feet out of the stirrups and anchor his little but in the ground by digging my feet in

    I am excited to see that someone else is considering Pony-Venting!!! My big 17h-er Mack is ready for this coming season but I don't know if we're going to be ready as a team so I've been searching for a potential back up and I only had to look as far as the pasture. I was given a 14.1hh pony last fall, we call her Piper, Jalapeno Piper. She's a chestnut QH x Arab and what a little packer she is!!! The plan had been to get this little 6 yr old gymkhana pony going over jumps and find her a home with a little girl to spoil her rotten but when we put her through the free jump chute she was already a star....snappy little front end and she loved it. I've taken her out for hacks the last 3 days and she's the cutest, boldest and bravest little thing ever...she charges through the water, up banks and down into ditches. I love her and I feel like I'm 10 yrs old again!!!! My friend was riding a big OTTB and when we let them GO Piper's little legs were just flying and she was tyring to keep up with the TB and much to my surprise she held her own for quite a while. I'm an often admitted fan of BIG horses even though I'm 5'2" but I've fallen for a pony. I'm thinking even if Mack is ready to go next month I might take Piper out to a couple of events anyway, she's too fun not to!!!

    Yay, nothing better than a little pony with a big heart!! Luckily for me Petey has a rather....erm....FULL size barrel so he feels bigger than he really is when I am on him ha ha.

    Good luck I hope you do it!!!
