Lol. We sold the pony, so I can't ride him. Would've been fun though!

I have a 10 hand pony and he staggers with over 100# on him.. I really don't think you can compare a 10 hand pony to what a 12Hs or taller can carry. Just my opinion..

It actually has more to do with the individual pony than you. A well conformed pony, with a nice short back and straight, study long legs will be able to carry you easy. If his legs aren't good the extra strain might do damage over a long period of time.

Also make sure the weight is distributed correctly. The strongest place on their back is between the 9th and 13th vertebrae, anything behind that might hurt him.

Edit: Didn't read that you sold him... so I guess this was pretty useless.
