The biggest problem I'm having is finding a saddle big enough for me that isn't too long for her back, I'm looking into english or stock saddles because all the westerns are just too long.

That is one cute photo Tigerstripes. I too have downsized. It took a bit of convincing that at 5'2", a 14hh pony wasn't to small for me. My girls took photos of me on the pony to show me.

Op, small is great. I'm convinced of it now. Riding my hooney pony many many years ago was the Last time I REALLY had fun on a horse!!

Thanks Carmen! My other horse is a 15'3h 1350 lb QH, it feels pretty strange to go back and forth between them, but it's sure easier to get up on Lily!

Yup, when one gets older it's the getting up and more especially the getting down that is the problem. Not that you have this problem Tigerstripes!

Hi!

You've put my mind at ease, I love ponies but have always been told i'm to big for ponies... but hopefully i'm looking at getting a cob or a native (Welsh/Fell/Connemara)

Tigerstripes, your pony is the cutest! Thanks for the picture :)

My favorite ride at the barn is a 13.2hh pony and I'm 5'6''.

Thank you Dee, she's fairly well convinced that she is too!
