Welsh A's are not stocky, they're pretty Arab-like. If you want something bigger I'd suggest a Connemara. (New Forest's are my personal favorite).

The Norwegian Fjord is my ultimate fav pony! They are so fat & cute & I love their manes & big gentle heads. The lips on them are huge as well ha ha!
I learned to ride on one when I was younger & still get the pleasure of riding said gelding every now & then when I go to my friend's parent's place.
I've never met a more docile breed & everyone i've talked to who's ever trained one said they were the easiest horses to work with

An Icelandic, a fjord, or Tennessee Walking Pony. Also, old Thelwell type Shetlands.

My faves are Welsh and Fell, but since you don't like them... ;)

I love German Riding Ponies, although I've never seen one in person.

Welsh are great show ponies in my opinion. So are New Forests and Haflingers too :)

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

Don't get me wrong-I absolutely adore those little Fells I've never seen a Welsh in person, on the net they look like they have pretty little heads then thick pony bodies O.o' Maybe they don't?

I was pondering on 'lighter' type ponies (like Hackneys or German Riding Ponies) for cart and halter shows. I'll definitely have a fat, hairy little beast of a pony sitting smugly in my pasture one day. Theres an old fart of one sitting sitting across the street in bad need of a diet, he's so short and fat and hairy though! I always want to go over there and hug him half to death

I saw the most beautiful Chocolate Palomino (either he was a chocolate, or a silver black) a while back. He had a long mane and was just so pretty and dark Had a colt in the same color too!

Wait! I'll fix it....

We love our POA! He's big enough for just about anyone to ride, acts like a horse rather than a pony, such a wonderful character and he's a leopard spot so he draws attention wherever he goes!

Another vote for Welshies! Mine has got some good bone, but I wouldn't call her drafty either. She's a Cob type, section C. Moves out like a horse with great gaits. Her canter is like a rocking chair.

(My avvie is a picture of her)

I can't access photos at work, but go to my website, www.CheyAutRanch and under horses, other horses, and check out my Welsh filly, Fyre Dragons Finally Friday, aka Willow. Definitely not thick bodied ;) She's a section A.

Mysti River Gold is half section B, but also half Arab.
