    Too big?

    You are going to hate the terrible quality of this video, it is somewhat less terrible at the very end (but still bad!). It was taken a couple years ago on a very old cell phone. This is my sister's pony, I am just wondering if I am too big for him? She's been wanting me to take him and work with him as he has not been ridden since. He has filled out considerably since this video as well... some just being waay to fat though!

    This is a recent pic of him. He really needs a diet.

    I take that back, he has not been ridden in 3 years. This is when we picked him up in 2010.

    I think you sit a little tall on him but not at all awkward. I fit my arab/morgan/? Mare the way you fit your pony. To help you feel better, here are some of the unflattering pictures of me on my mare lol She is maybe around 14.3ish more or less and I am about 5'7"

    One of her first rides:

    A horribly over-flexed Vedra:

    My legs here probably look a little long from behind:

    And when she's stretched out we look normal! :

    Hope this helps!

    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.

    I sure would hope not, especially since my 6'3" husband would look equally ridiculous on his 14.3 hand qh lol. I have just always been self conscious, but I guess I'd get over it if I was having fun riding!
