Riding a Pony in Horse-Sized Tack?
A lot of the barrel horses I've been interested in have been ponys and I have tons of HORSE-sized tack! They're all larger ponys (over 13h) and the one I'm looking at currently is actually pretty stocky (although she's trained for barrels). I have two saddle pads that are really nice, but they're also quite large. All my bridles are horse-sized. However, I rode the POA I used this summer in one of Major's old bridles (on the smallest settings) and it worked fine. I also used his show halter on the smallest setting and that fit fine too. Do you think I'll be able to use my horse-sized tack on a tall pony? It would be nice not to have to buy anything, since I've already got everything, but I will if I need too. The one thing I don't have yet is a barrel saddle, can I just get a 15" saddle like I normally ride in or does it need to be smaller on the account of her being a pony? Could the bits be too big and therefore uncomfortable in her mouth?
