I ride English and Western, but with Ollie I use just Western. People always make comments about how he is so little, and too small for me. It hurts my feelings honestly. However he and I seem to have a pretty nice connection that I'd rather not give up! I also do not ride very often, and I am able to pull him from pasture, warm him up, and hop on with very little problems. Sometimes he gets upset and crow hops a little bit,but for a horse his size it just looks silly.
I do like the perks of
A) short distance to get on/off/fall
B) his personality matches mine
To be honest, he is perfect for me and my lifestyle if he wasn't so **** SHORT! Lol. Ugh. Do they make miracle grow for horses? He's nearly 6...
I can't see him leaving my place unless the perfect trade comes along with the perfect family for him. I'm just bothered by our size difference. I feel HUGE. No girl likes to feel huge. :(
