critique pony jumping! :)

Hey guys! I've had this project pony for a year now. He came to us as a rescue case. He had founder in all four of his feet and struggled to walk down the barn aisle on the day he came. He's come a long way, and I want to know what you think of us!

Before you say it,
Yes, I am much too big for him (being 5'5" and he is only 12.1) but there was no one smaller at the barn that was willing to retrain him. And over time, we've become attached to each other and gotten used to our size difference :)

Thanks in advance!

Haha this pony is so cute! I'm not a pony person, nor am I one to be critiquing the pony, but I think they're just too cute! Cute little jump on it too(: Looks like you've been doing a pretty good job!

I think both of you look pretty good. But for his size, I think you need to be a little lighter in the saddle? I try to be light in the saddle no matter what size horse, it irks them less.

I agree with IlovePhillip I think you need to be lighter in the saddle. But very cute pony with a cute jump.

It's so hard to critique a rider on a small pony, because they just always look slightly awkward no matter what! But the pony has a typical characteristic of a small horse: He holds his head kind of like a tractor. He holds the bit and carries himself in the same way all around. I'd like to see him getting rounder and more responsive: it would just make the whole picture look better. Congratulations on your work with him! he looks like a fantastic little pony

Where there's a bay, there's a way!
