I've ridden a 9hh Minature horse that I was training for a little girl a year or so ago- but I'm only 4'11 (veryveryshortperson o.o) so it wasn't really that big of a deal xP

Haha yeah. It scared the little kids we usually put on him and since he knew they were scared he'd keep doing it. So I just rode him for a while for fun. xD I really wanted to stick him in my truck and just take him home. He was absolutely adorable!

Here's a picture of him! We called hi, Fabio.

He's super obese, I know. I kept telling my boss we didn't need to give him pellets like the rest of the horses because he's a pony and not that old anyway. But they never listened. In the winter he was so cute and fluffy! I love that pony haha. I totally wanted to teach him to go english and jump.

NOTE: The girl holding him is like 5'1", so she makes him look bigger than he really is, lol.

The smallest I've ridden, was my first pony, she's about 9hh. But that was when I was a kid. In the past 6 years, the smallest I've ridden, even took to Pony Club, was 10hh.

10hh only because me and a friend had to train a pony for driving and a little bit of walking.

A horse can teach a girl courage, if she chooses to grab mane and hang on for dear life.

I'm breaking a 9hh or 10hh mini for a little girl right now. I'm the smallest person at the barn that could do it, but I'm not planning on riding her tons, just enough to get her to understand stuff. I'm finding that walking beside her with the reins in my hands and leaning some weight in the saddle is doing just as well though..
She's so cute too!!
