    Am I too tall?

    I have found a lovely winter project pony (not to keep for my self) , but she is only 11.1hh and I am 5ft and weigh 7 stones. However I she's a heavy set Welsh Sec A. Just thought I'd get an opinion on this as its been ages since I rode diddy ponies .

    My friend rides my 11.1 Shetland cross (but he is very stocky) she weights around 8 stone and is 5'2. Welsh A's can be poor weight carriers it would depend upon his build but at 7 stone you are really light and I would have thought you'd be fine.

    Do you have any pictures of you and her, specifically pictures of you riding her?

    Whether or not you are too big for this pony will greatly depend on her conformation and build. Ideally, the horses that make good weight carriers have short strong backs, big feet and big bones, a wide chest and haunch, a big barrel, and good muscle mass.

    After googling exactly how much a stone is, I discovered that you are the same size as my youngest daughter (5ft 100 lbs). So no, I can't imagine you being to tall or heavy. My dos centavos.

    I don't have the pony as of yet I was unsure as to whether buying her was a good idea
