Connemara X Welsh gelding

What do you think about this guy?
He is a 9 year old Connemara X Welsh pony. I think about 13 hh, I am 5'2-3" 110-113 lbs.
(things with my mare Dahlia weren't working out)
I got him yesterday to keep my paint gelding company, but I will also be riding him.

1. Yes I am tall for him.
2. No I am not too heavy.

He competed recently at 2'6"-2'8" with a young girl who is 5'9".
He has done cross country and jumpers with that girl this past year.
He doesn't feel small when riding him, he can really move out!
I can get more pictures later.

He doesn't usually stand with his hind legs back like that he was watching people across the street and my mom snapped the shot as soon as he stopped moving lol








He is an awesome little guy! <3

Very pretty. What saddle do you use on him? He should look very nice in harness. You can start long-lining him now.

He will make a spiffy English or driving pony. Are you sure he's 13 hands? He looks smaller to me. There again, I'm used to seeing 13 hand Gypsies who have so much body, they appear always, much larger.

I am not sure and I haven't been able to measure him yet, but I am 5'2"-3" for reference I have long legs for my height.

Did a rough measure (marked out hand marks on a wall and measured up to wear his withers are compared to my height) came out to him being about 12hh or just under.
