Im 5'9 and 171lbs and I completely understand what you mean, you just feel like your too tall and just seem weird and disproportional on a pony. I feel like a big gust of wind is going to catch me and knock me off at any moment
Just know you're not alone and ride them anyways, awkward or not
From what my trainer told me, ponies are able to handle more weight, so squish them
