3.5 year old Welsh sec C.. What weight will she carry?

Hello,

I've found a gorgeous pallomino welsh sec C that I'm going to view on Thursday but have a few questions.

She's 3.5 years old, 13.2hh and walks/trots/canters/pops tiny jumps with her current 9st (121 lb) owner.

Myself & my sister are both shorter and lighter than her current owner, but my mum is the same height and 7 lbs heavier. However, she is a novice and only does walk/trot on lead rope at this time and occasioanally when brave I pop her on lunge. She doesn't do any cantering or jumping yet and probably won't for at least a year.

Will this pony be able to handle that? She has been in work since just after her 2nd birthday.

This is the pony:

That is a very small looking 13.2 hands

I do not think 120-130 lbs is too much weight, but I would not be jumping a horse/pony at 3.5 years old.... way too young to be jumping, IMO

Is you mom planning to learn to ride on this pony? I'd be slightly concerned about a novice rider getting on such a young pony as the pony could pick up some bad habits. Just my own opinion.

If you are looking for something that you can all enjoy, personally I would recomend something with a few more miles and years behind it. A novice rider on a young horse could lead to serious problems very quickly.

No she's not looking to learn on her she has really bad knees and back and just hops on occasionally (usually once every other month if that) for a plod about on lead rope.

She's jumping at 3.5 but she was backed at 2 I was the 2nd person to ever ride her and she was ever so good even then. I have no intentions of jumping her until she's 4 and even then it will be kept very small until her top line builds.

Some of the pics are from when she was 2 and newly backed. The only recentish one is the one of her jumping. I know the owner and the pony is lovely but just concerned about her being able to carry 133 lbs of my mother about every now and again.

I currently ride a 13.3 Welsh pony in endurance. She can carry me 50 miles and I weigh 120, but with the tack and water, probably around 130-135 when it all washes out. Should not be a problem for your pony to carry your mom at 13.2 for just a lead line around the yard.

If you are looking to buy her then I wouldn't buy a lightweight pony that had been backed at 2 and jumped at 3.5, bones would not have developed properly and could be damaged.
