Which horse should my father give to my little sister?

My father wants to give my little sister (9years) a horse.

Does there exist a horse slightly bigger then the one in the video

Can't see the video, so don't know what you're talking about. My Barracuda filter won't allow it.

SR: It's of Thumbalina, the smallest horse/pony in the world.

To answer your question, yes.

To go in depth, of course there is, but I doubt a pony that small would be a suitable mount for even a nine year old. Perhaps do some more research about different breeds and temperments, and just look around your area.

Best of luck.

Thanks, horseluver.

OP, Thumbelina's a dwarf miniature horse. Minis, even if they're not dwarfs, aren't really suited as riding animals.

If your sister wants to ride, might I suggest lessons first, and maybe a lease later on when she's sure she wants to continue?

I'd be reluctant to buy any 9 y/o a pony or horse unless they'd already been riding awhile and were enthusiastic about it.

If you're dead set on gettin her a small pony, look up some different pony breeds on google or something, and then search the ones you like from there more extensively to figure out which breed/cross would fit what your little sister wants to do.
I'm sure you'll find quite a few ponies under 12hh or so, and I doubt many of us have thetime to list them all. Good luck finding her a pony, though I agree with SR about lessons, and then leasing. I'm thinking that it might end up as a waste of money for the family, IMHO.
