    You guys look fine I won't lie, he would find it easier to carry you if you were lighter, but who can't say the same about their own horses! He looks perfectly happy at the moment! So I wouldn't worry too much!

    No, honestly, your fine on him. He looks happy, and there's no strain.
    I'm a slightly 'bigger teen' rider, and I worry that on ponies I look like their in pain, but I'm reassured im fine :)

    I think you look fine on this horse. I have seen some big ole cowboys on little 14.1 cutting horses and no one says squat or even thinks anything of it.

    Smart Little Lena is one of the top AQHA cutting horses in the world and he was all of 13.3! That is pretty darn short and he hauled around a big ole cowboy.

    You looked balanced - your horse looks happy. Work on your skills and enjoy yourself - that is what riding is all about.
