    I wouldn't even be putting a child on her for leadline. There is way to much damage that you can do to her back.

    25 lbs won't hurt her back for the ten minutes that he would ride her. Harness and equipment would weigh comparable to that. I don't trust ponies with a toddler, and he is way too little for a horse. The miniature horses that I have always dealt with have he personality of a horse, and even their website promotes riding of small children.

    Looks grey to me, but you can always confirm by the sire & dam's colors, or if they're unclear (either both or neither have the grey or cream gene based on registered color) then you would have to do genetic testing to be sure.

    I am also in the do not ride camp, she's extremely down hill and extremely long backed.

    So, if you don't feel it will cause any permanent damage, that makes it ok?

    Because IMO, just because their website claims it is ok doesn't make it so.

    Did you know they used to do open heart surgery on newborns with NO PAIN MEDICATION, believing that the children felt no pain (USATODAY.com - Believing babies feel pain).

    In case it isn't clear, by posting that example, I mean to say that sometimes what is believed by the professionals doesn't always hold true in the test of time.

    Omg I've seen larger kids riding smaller ponies, now I'm not saying that its ok but using open heart surgury on babies as an example seems a bit out there. Minis are very tough having worked with many and its not like she's expecting it to go trailriding tomorrow. I'm sure that after a a diet and some exercise her top line will improve dramatically and won't have any trouble carry a small child in leadline classes.

    Congrats on your addition, still waiting to see what her breeding is.....

    The only point being made is that the things advocated as truth are not always true. Using open heart surgery was meant to demonstrate that if the professionals can be wrong about THAT, one should use some common sense instead of automatically responding "well the (professionals) say it's ok, so it must be!".

    And I'm sure she will, she obviously has done her research, knows what she has got and getting into, so why can't you believe that she would use her own common sense, instead of jumping to conclusions?

    I am positive I didn't jump to any conclusions.

    I guess I forgot I should be butt-patting instead of having a real life opinion.

    Ignore me, clearly I'm out of my gourd, advocating caution instead of praising teh purty poneh.
