Whats a good breed of beginner pony that can hold older kids

Hi. My friend and I are getting a pony (well really I am) But anyway, we are also running little pony rides as such, but we are both a little older than 8 or 9. We are like 12-13 years old and weigh less than 60. We want a sort of tall pony, one small so littlies can ride it, but one tall enough and strong enough to hold us.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Oh, and we are both beginners. My friend hasn't been riding much longer than me, except she doesn't take proper lessons. They only have 2 horses and they have to swap over.

I have quite expensive ($455) lessons every term, so I am actually up to her skill. We just don't jump to high because its dangerous and yah yah ya..

...

I would reccomend conemmaras, welsh ponies, and welsh cobs. They all are great bigger ponies. An Even Better choice would be fells, or dartmoor. They are bid and sturdy.

We have a horse at my barn that we call a quarterpony. I don't really know his breed, I guess he's a quarter horse mixed with some pony breed? But my first horse was a quarter horse so I think they're great for beginners, and a pony that's part qh could carry bigger kids because they've got such a strong build.

Hi

Ponies can be so headstron at times, why not have a horse. By the way ponies are much straonhger than you wouldimagine, they are easily able to carry double their body weight!
