I am only 4'11", so have rode Evil ponies my whole life. I just don't feel comfortable on a big horse anymore. ( :

I would agree that you should be able to comfortably ride the bigger ones. Heck, I rode a pony for a while that was only 13.1 and I rode him hard, working 8+ hours a day in a feedlot and I even roped off him once. He would have drug the cow too, if he hadn't run into a big old slippery mud puddle LOL.

Okay, I know that this isn't really funny, but the way you worded this made me .

Mostly because I know how you feel

Mmmm I used to own a 12hh thick-ish welsh pony. 23 years old. I was about 5'7 and not thin. He could carry me all day with ease.

You could ride a welsh cob!

Uh huh... and they run under low hanging branches on purpose to dump you, squeeze through narrow openings that just they can fit through to get you off, and my pony's favorite of all... canter along nicely until he spotted a particular clover plant then slam on the brakes while putting his head down to snatch said clover all in the span of 1/2 a second. I did not do well with my flying lessons.

Evil Evil spawn of satan Welsh pony.

I love riding Ponies. They are more spunky and are hard to ride. ;)

Yep, this. Except mine would canter along nicely and hit the brakes just to be an onry witch. I've had dental work done thanks to "Princess". It's a small wonder that evil pony didn't kill me!

IMO, you're not missing too much! Plus those choppy, choppy gaits! Give me a horse any day.

Our BO always says that if you can ride a pony, you can ride anything xD

I'm tiny, 4'11. So I get the pleasure of riding all of the ponies that our cowboys and trainers are unable to ride. Let me tell you this. A horse will almost never buck or rear without a reason. There's always an underlying issue, whether it's pain or confusion.

Ponies though? They defy this piece of knowledge! Little buggars will knock you off just because they feel like it, and they use their adorable fluffiness to play mind tricks with you!

A welsh pony though? I might just want to ride one of those.
