ive always wanted a pony, and to be able to ride some crazy pony when i was older. Unfortunately, I'm 5'10" so I'm just a bit to big for them.

I have a 14.3 Morgan. Does that make him a pony? I think he's just a hand too many.

Anyway the first horse I rode was an Arabian Pony. He was only 13.3. :) His name was Buzz.

FEI's definition of a pony is: 148cm without shoes or 149cm shod

In our terms:
Anything up to and including 14.2 hh is a pony... anything 14.3hh and above is a horse.

So Abby, your Morgan is juts an inch too tall to be considered a pony :)

I think ponies are cool!

I think I prefer riding a bit taller, but I wish I had a pony to give lessons on (and to ride in secret - just joking, it would be no secret)...a couple of my students would do well on ponies...I think they seem less intimidating (even if they can be just as naughty :)

Also, I could make my hubby ride the pony (if we had a nice stocky, larger one) - that would be funny.

^^ Since coming onto this forum, I have really begun to love ponies too! Since I am short, they make it fun to ride and easier for me too. By easier, I mean, like someone stated before, I feel less intimidated by ponies because of their small stature. Somehow, I feel like, we would just "get" each other... hehe. Small and cute, but sometimes naughty and mischievous... that's ponies for ya! <3

personally i prefer galloways/cobs and horses because ponies are often bitey and cranky lol not always but often :) and they have trots that make it so hard to ride

i do think they are very cute though :)
