Thanks for posting the pictures smguidotti. We are talking now of swapping horses, I am not sure right now if I should or not. She'd take my paint mare for a babysitter for her 26 year old gelding, for giving the kids pony rides, her to lightly ride etc. I'd take the grey pony. She does not trust him with the kids because he reared last time she was on him, why he has not been ridden in so long. If it didn't work out we'd swap back or she was talking just selling the pony.
I think he'd be okay carrying my weight, I just don't want to look ridiculous and self conscious.
This is me on my mule, she is right between 14 and 14.1 hands high. She's probably finer boned than the pony but maybe bigger barreled.
