Question Horse Height Help!

HELP! There is a pony that I may be riding for some one else and basically im 5ft 2 and 48kg and this pony is.... 12 hh. Am I small enough to ride it? Its not rode often I suppose it will be quite, chubby. And, if I can, how long can I ride for? I don't mind looking like a giraffe riding a mouse (lol) but I really need to know.

I am not positive but I think you would be fine riding a pony that size. I am bigger than you and I have ridden a pony that size a few times and he was ok. His owner wreckons he gets all proud when the "big kids" ride him hehe.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P
