For it to be a pony it has to be 14.1 or smaller. Anything 14.2 and up is a horse.
She was a games pony and apparently could have been registered as a pony if she was half a hand smaller.
I don't know how that works though I always thought 14.2hh and below was a pony, but I've been told it's recently been changed here and I know a lot of 14.3hh ... equines... have been competing in the pony section of shows.
It's confusing :S why can't they just keep the rules the same??
And back on subject....
I looked at a nice gelding about an hour from here, and he was just that, nice. Untill you got on him, he went around sweetly for about two circles of walk and then BAM here we go rodeo and I was off. (you literally would have needed superglue on your bum to stay on that one!)
So a few days later I looked on trademe again and saw he had been relisted. And the owner had added underneath the details "Horse has problems" - No kidding lady he turned bronc on me because of a previous injury that was not able to be seen or felt from anyone but him!! (I found out about the injury after the horse had been PTS, RIP Singa)
Then a friend of mine enquired about him only to be told the horse had to be taken away and was not to be ridden on the property... Well I don't know about you but heck why not, lets go and buy a horse with problems without riding him first... Yeah no that SCREAMS dodgy to me!
