    Wasn't that one grand prix jumper only like 14 hh? His name is slipping my mind atm, though!!!

That might not do him any favors in the hunter ring, but he's certainly a fantastic jumper pony.

    Yes, your right he would not do well in the hunter ring!! Haha that knee action would leave all of the judges scratching their heads. He is just a pony jumper.

    Haha. I saw a little hunter Hackney pony once. I thought it was adorable and your guy reminds me of him - though, yeah, the judges didn't think so. He had the squarest little knees too.

    I don't think Theodore O'Conner did Grand prix level stuff... He did eventing but not Grand Prix level show jumping.

    Knees are near perfect. Lokks very nice over the fence. Only thing would be to have his back arched a little more.

    What a little powerhouse! The only thing I would be concerned about is his cross cantering in the video. Either lack of training or possibly soreness would be in my mind. He is a super star though and I kind of want to steal him. :)

    Teddy, an Arabian/Shetland/Thoroughbred cross was small for an event horse, but was incredibly athletic and competitive. He was named 2007 USEF Horse of the Year after winning individual and team gold medals at the Pan Am games. He placed third at Rolex Kentucky last year, and sixth in 2008.

    So guess not grand prix (?) but definitely "top competition!"...good feat for a 14.1 hh pony!

    You can definitely tell he's a pony looking at his canter stride, lol. He's a stellar little jumper, the only thing I can thing of is some flatwork schooling to keep him steadier coming at the jumps and to orevent him from cross-cantering. The rider really has to grab his face, so working a bit on that can really help. Otherwise you have to grab his face and drop him over the jump, then grab him again. What a cute little pony though!

    I know he didn't do Grand Prix, haha. I assumed that that was who mom2pride was talking about though. Maybe I was wrong, but that is the only really famous pony that comes to my mind when I think of high level show jumping/eventing. ;)
