Thanks all for the great replies. I think we're going to have to start looking for another horse if my daughter wants to keep competing. If not, our current pony has no problems with her weight or even mine - but I can only muster a very bouncy sitting trot.

Your daughter and her pony are very cute together.

Like has been pointed out, if she wants to continue to show the hunters and eq stuff she might have to upgrade to a slightly larger mount just so she can look pretty. Her tall upper body does make her look a little too tall for your adorable pony. I am sure your pony does not think she is physically too large though.

As long as theydont weigh to much there sweeeet
Im confused by this comment. What do you mean, "people are always on ponies, if competing ..." I am 14 and my boy is 17 hands (soon to be 17.1 as he is getting a lot of fat and muscle on him). I have always ridden horses, I have only ridden ponies a few times and I have never shown a pony. Maybe it's just me? Hehe, just thought I should ask!

You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.

It is only in some cases. It depends on how you progress and all of that.

I mean here in New Zealand (maybe other places) we have pony GP etc and you have to be on a pony untill you 17 then you move to hacks, I too have never had a pony, but its people who are in that show scheme that do ride ponys intill they are 17 =]
