No way at all. Your pony looks comfortable carrying you. You look perfect together =)

Your weight is fine for your pony but your hight is a different story.

I am 5' 2" almost 5'3" and I ride a 14.2 hh pony also I weigh about 90 pounds and I have been told many a time I am tool tall for him. Based on your picture though I would say you 2 look fine!

But if you get a little bit taller I would suggest getting a bigger horse.

Very nice looking pony who's stout with a big barrel to take up your long ol' legs . You look just fine on her. I consider that a perfect fit, actually.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

You guys look AWESOME together! I don't think you are too tall at all. What makes you guys look just right is that your leg doesn't go below the pony's belly.

You kind of scare me E2W!

I am 5'6", 200 lbs and ride a 14.3 Mustang. I wouldn't call him a pony because he's built like a foundation QH. But he IS short. I can't imagine anyone at 5'3" and 90 lbs feeling you are too tall for a 14.2 pony. Heaven help me if that is the case!

THR, I wouldn't worry about it at all LOL. My brother is 6'1, ~200 pounds and he commonly rides a 14.1 QH. Snuffy has zero problems carrying him all day every day...and dragging around 1000 pound cattle at the same time .
