LOL, I am 5'8" tall, and my dressage pony is 13.3H. He is my avatar photo. GRP by Benno's Dream, his dam was welsh.
My welsh mare lines are very old lines. She has Downland Chevalier and Solway Master Bronze up close.
I love riding my pony, I never feel like I am on a pony unless I am right next to someone on a big horse.
I have yet to have any judge penalize me for being big on him, or for him being too small. I have gotten lots of great comments as well.
Some of the clinicians I have ridden with have made the comment that "When he is together and stepping way up from behind, you forget all about his size!"
One time in a clinic we were trotting a large circle, I was sharing my time with another lady on a big horse, and the clinician kept saying now just try to keep up with the pony! It was very funny! But is true, he has a big trot for a little guy.
A two year old has some growing left to do. My guy is 6 and just grew two inches in the last year and a half.
