Bigger, Huger, Better xD

So, I have ca. 13hh pony mare, looks similar to a hucul horse (i don't know if you know them, they're quite common in czech rep.), quite sporty, I think. Her mother was (according to her previous owner) a lot smaller then her and her father was "Something big and black".

Since she is quite thin etc, I would like to have a foal from her a bit bigger, stronger, so that it can be ridden by me. She has no problem carrying me I think, but in fact, I would feel better if she was a bit taller and storneger.

I've thought about macthing her with Welsh Cod, Arabian, Shagya Arabian, or even some smaller warmblood. I've seen crosses between shetty and thoroughbreds and they did just fine... One lady suggested me Rocky Mountain Horse, I also considered PasoFino (we don't have these american breeds in czech rep., they're only ones in our country, there are some QH,PH and appas, but they wont get on another breed). But I am afraid of the gaits ... I' ve no experience with it...

What would you recommend? I would like to use the foal for trail rides mostly, some dressage and endurance riding, maybe little jumps. (english riding)

^^we had a little back trauma so we didn't do anything for 2 months. She became sooooo fat

She's a cute little thing but yeah, you do need something bigger :) I'm not sure breedwise but hopefully if you bred her to something bigger and thicker, the foal would be somewhere in between :)

Can't say I haven't sported a bikini top and some shorts once or twice in the same hopes.

Why not buying something bigger? In breeding, there are no guarantees. You could put her to a shire and the foal may throw more to the mare, and you'll end up with a narrow, gangly looking thing no better than the mare herself.
Personally, I wouldn't consider breeding from that mare. She's cute, good alrounder by the looks of her, but not a breeding candidate.

I agree with Kayty, I'd probably just look at buying a different horse, it'd be cheaper than breeding, and if I don't want something that looks like the horse I already got then there isn't a point in really breeding from it
