    LOL What?!

    My pony jumper jumps/shows 3'0. He used to jump 3'3" and school 3'6", but he's 20 now so we're taking it easy.

    Well someone had the nerve to say to me recently "when are you going to grow up and get a horse?"

    UMMM WHAT?
    Seriously, my pony is pretty darn athletic! What's the big deal if he's only 14.1? We work well together!


    Some people..
    Has anyone else encountered people with an attitude like this? I'd love to have a snappy comeback lol

    You consider 14.1 a pony?? LOL. I guess I am just so used to riding small horses that it isn't such a big deal to me. I actually prefer the shorter horses; easier to get on and not so far to fall off .

    Tell them that you don't wanna grow up because you're afraid you'll end up like them

    I've had people say things like "yeah, you need to get yourself on a horse" when I've ridden ponies.
    I'm 5'2 and about 100 pounds, I fit ponies wonderfully.
    Sigh, some people!

    Honestly, with me.. I would tell them where to shove it.. ( that's just me) I don't know how opiniated you are because I really am.. lol but that's just because I had a pony and I loved her to death and she was awesome..
    And ponies can do just as much as horses can..
    So don't let anyone tell ou that your pony isn't good enough!!

    My mare was 15.1, and my trainer would always call her a pony, and tell me I needed to upgrade. She also hated the fact she was an appaloosa.

    :(

    See my quarter pony was just a little above 14 hands..
    Whats wrong with a appy??
    There is no such thing as a upgrade when it comes to horses...
    That's like telling you that you can't breath.. my horses are my best friends.. not pets. So im never going to be due for a upgrade :) lol it will just keep expanding lol

    Hahahaha the person who said this to me, I'm just going to make it my goal to beat her. (Which actually isn't unreasonable at all..)
    She can eat my pony's dirt

    Tell her that you are sorry that she is intimidated by your pony. I would tell her something along the lines of 'hey look, its not my pony's fault that your horse can't ride' lol My gelding is 14.2 and I actually have to correct people at the barn all the time and say 'hey, he's not a pony!' Its too bad that he is way too talented and athletic and can outrun their horses!

    Some people just think if you're not riding their horse your horse isn't good enough.. You know what I mean? If you got a 20 hand draft tomorrow, it would be too tall!! If you got one the same exact build, size, and temperament it would be the wrong color!!

    I know the type.
