    My pony.

    Here are some pictures of my pony. Some are from last year and some are more recent.





























    I'm not good at conformation pictures, but here are a couple.

    There are 3 different people riding him in these pictures. Lol. Also, I knew when I bought him that I SHOULD buy something bigger, but oh well, I love him to death.

    Anyway, do you think the blonde girl looks too big on him (wearing the white sweatshirt & he has the dark purple saddle pad on)? If I do sell him, I am hoping that she is the one who ends up with him. I think she fits on him pretty well right now, but will definitely outgrow him within the next year or two.

    The person jumping with the purple helmet is way too tall to be riding him. The blonde is about on the verge of being too tall but not there yet.

    The girl with the purple helmet is a lesson student that should have never ridden him to begin with. But, I won't get into that.

    I wanted criticism on the pony, not the riders. =]

    BTW, I'm the one w/ the black & pink stars helmet & the show clothes. I know I should have at least a large pony/small horse, but I love him to death and would rather have him. =] What he really needs is a child that can actually ride - we don't have many of those in my area that are looking for a pony.

    He is a cute little guy.

    I really applaud him. He is giving great effort over these fences even though most of the riders are giving him no release or freedom at all. You are the one rider who is giving him his head.

    I know you didn't want a rider critique, but its unfair to judge him when his jumping form is being inhibited in most of the pics by his rider. He has lots of scope and bascule and really cracks his back. But he's actualy being punished for doing this by his riders restrictive hand. He has so much potential and is really trying his heart out.

    Why are these other folks riding him? Is he your horse? Just curious!

    Well, he was used in lessons to have him ridden more because I totaled my car and couldn't make it out to the farm as often. I have taken him out of lessons because he's better off not being ridden by people who really can't ride.

    The blonde girl may not release, but other than that she is a really good little rider and one of the only people that can ride Matty well.

    I am having others ride him because I am pregnant & not allowed to jump. Well, soon I am going to stop riding at all, so I need other people who can ride for me. And yes, he is mine. He is up for sale, but I am trying to lease him out to one or two girls at my farm and not sell him.

    Thank you! =]
