I got a super cute 12.2 welsh/hackney pony for kids to ride when they come over.... But....im wondering if I jump on him sometimes if it could harm him? I am about 5'4-5" and approx.125lb.....he isnt really,really stocky,but he is not a fine built pony either. I jumped on him bareback today and he did awesome..I just didnt ride him long because I felt kind of bad. Though he didnt seem to have any trouble holding my weight. He is 12 Years,too.
So in all honesty could I hurt him by riding him sometimes?
