I'm 14 , not a skinny kid but not overweight , and I'm riding a 13hh fine typed pony. All my mates are selling their ponies / moving up to big horses. My one mates bought a 17hh who is coming Saturday coming off a 14.2. My other frind has recently had a 16.2 coming off a 14.2. Both have said they were WAY to big for the ponies. My other friend is moving from her 13.2 to 15.3. My other friend came off her pony and now rides a 16hh and lastly another who is now riding a 15.2. My mom knows Ollys way to small ( my feet don't touch him and I can wrap my legs around his belly and touch my toes with my other foot. My dream is to do showjumping again ( pony too small now and refuses even the smallest of jumps ) today I spoke to my mom about getting something around 16hh ( the height of her horse even though im taller than her ) her excuse is you can't go from 13hh to 16hh even though my mates gone from a 13hh to a 16.2. Today she said I can have a pony 14.2 ( the height of the ponies one friend is selling and the other one is moving up from )and that's my limit . I have been riding since I was born really since we had our horses at home untill recently moving. My mom won't let me ride her horse either. I domt want to be on the same size pony that my mates are selling when they have all now moved to horses. Out of 5 friends ( not inc me ) I'm the only one still on a pony. I want a lifelong friend not one I have to sell again because of height. Seeing my friend Sophie on her 16.2 today broke my heart. ( we could never sell my pony because he's family ) so when I have the courage to ask if I can have one around 16hh ish she says no and I'm only allowed 14.2 even though I've been riding a lot longer than most my friends . I can't jump my pony anymore which Is what I want to do in the future.
How do I convince my mom to let me get a taller horse ?
The last few questions I've Asked , no-ones replies even though I've had loads of views. Please can at least one person reply ? It's annoying waiting and checking for replies to realise no-one actually is going to reply. Sorry for that slight moan xxxx
