I actually bought him when I was still living up in Canada, there is a woman in Langley, British Columbia who owned my horse's sire, Brynarian Brenin ap Maldwyn, who passed away a few years ago. However, she still has the semen so she is still breeding to TB mares, producing these wonderful crosses. My horse wasn't actually bred by her, he was just out of her stallion, he was actually bred by someone in Alberta but ended up back in BC. Many of this stallion's offspring are upper level eventers or jumpers. They are super athletic and very talented! And pretty cute ;) Her website is: Bryn Carregwen Welsh Sport Horses if you'd like to check it out! She has quite a few for sale.

For what it's worth, OP, you do not need to lose any weight.

I hate to write this but I would suggest...gulp...that you lose about 12-15 pounds. Take a full year to do this, so it's healthy. Your weight is fine for lower amateur, but I could see this as the only impediment to competing in upper levels. The people you will compete with at the higher levels are lean, mean, fighting machines, and the judges may mark you down in Dressage.
I think it is incredibly rude and uncalled for that you are telling a young girl that she needs to lose weight. The OP is not overweight and it is not affecting her riding skills. Show me why/where/how a dressage judge is going to mark a rider down for their WEIGHT!

OP - I'm crap at critiquing and you are by far a better rider than me so I just wanted you look awesome!

Talented rider!

I have nothing to offer for critique as I am not a jumper.

However, you clearly do not need to lose weight.

Keep doing what you are doing with that lovely horse of yours!

I KNEW I would get a firestorm from my post. Please understand that IMHO, this rider and her horse are VERY TALENTED. She is an aggressive rider--maybe a little bit more release--and her TB cross is aggressive and careful, judging from the pictures. This is a "critique", so I did so. I believe in what George Morris wrote about rider's exercises: "Push yourself away from the table." I know it has worked for ME, every time I've tried it.
I mean the OP NOTHING but the best.

How has that got ANYTHING to do with the OP losing weight?!

She is not 5ft8 and 200ilbs on a 14.2hh pony.

Nor is she in any regards overweight!

I believe the critique was for riding, not a weightless issue.

I think we should agree to disagree on this one!!!

I think an apology is owed, but that is just my opinion.

Just because George Morris said it you think it is okay?

No one is denying that the OP is talented. Myself and the other posters, if you could not understand what we wrote, think it is not your place to tell a young girl to lose 10-12 pounds.

I do not know your background, so I want to ask out of curiosity, do you show jumpers, dressage or event and know George?
