tricky 025.jpghiya my pony is a rescue pony he is 29 years old now and I have had him for 28 years he is a welsh section a and is 12 hh.
He is not a childs pony as he is way to stroung for a child and I would not like to take the risk.
I broke him in to being ridden and he also drives to.
He is a fantastic pony and we have shared lots of great times togeather.
Im 5'8 and at that time weighed 9 1/4 stone and he carryed my weight no problems at all.
Im so proud of him and to me his my son and we have shared a lot of fun and adventures togeather.
Heres a picture of him.

Huh, I'm probably going to be abt the same height that you are, so the pics r good! Also, moderately off topic, but how high have you seen ponies jump?

Anyone else got input on the topic? ALso, I got my friends to take a few pics of me riding Joey, I don't really look too big on him now that I can see myself, in a way!

So I totally forgot I posted in here, better late than never right?

I am 5'1" and a 1/2, she is probably close to 13.2h without her shoes, and stocky as heck, though doesn't completely show it in photos.
I haven't done a TON of jumping with her recently, just popping over a few here or there. Doesn't help that my confidence over fences has completely gone to carp, lol. The highest I have ever taken her was probably 3'6" or so, kind of a one time deal just because. We regularly are going around 2'6"/2'9", and were going 3' regularly for a while ...planning to get there again once I get some guts again haha.

How old is you horse, beverlyy?

My prior horse (er, pony!) was 14.2 hands. I got him when I was 11 and had to give him up when I was 21. I'd say my height and weight were less when I was 11 than when I was 21, but all those years he carried me no problem, over jumps, through the trails, everywhere. We were a team, through and through :)

I used to ride and jump our pony before she retired. She is 13.2 hand POA and I am 5'3" and 105 pounds. I got her when I was 12 or 13 and rode her up until last year (I am 21 now-- she just turned 21 too!). There was a lady at the barn where I used to board that rode a pony (just walking and a little trotting) and people would show negativing towards it, but the pony could carry the weight and he was fine.
