    Yeah I like ponys I think they are cute and theres less of a fall. But I ride tall horses just because I am tall and they fit me

    I still ride a 13.2hh pony and she's ancient. At nearly 32 she's got more skip in her step than horses a third her age. So everyone can bite me. My pony kicks butt.

    I know the type.
    So true!

    This is another one of those topics that doesn't make much sense to me. The way that I grew up, a pony isn't necessarily decided by a horse's height. A pony is more considered a breed. Shetlands and welsh (though we never see them around here) are what I call ponies. If a horse is an actual horse like a QH or a TB or whatever else, then they are a horse, regardless of height. We had a little QH mare for about 20 years that I don't even think broke 14hh but I would never have dared to call her pony. She could outwork any horse twice her size and when my brother held a footrace at the feedlot he worked at, she was 19 years old and 8 months pregnant and she still whooped all the other horses. LOL.

    Oh dear, what a poor attitude these people have to make comments like that. I'm sure your Pony is amazing, he sounds it :).

    My Mare is only 14hh and I have only had one incident, a group of girls were making some really nasty comments before the start of a 3.3 hunter trial. I just smiled and then beat them .

    Casper's 14.2 h, and his predecessor (the best horse in the entire universe) was 14.1 h. Both Arabians, which are horses regardless of their size. They certainly have the 'tudes of bigger horses!

    Even JJ is small for a TB, only coming in at 15.2 h. Which for me of course, is humongous!

    generally a pony is 14.2 and under and a horse over, although you are right about the breed thing though, if a new forest grows to 14.3hh then they are still a pony. And minis are horses :P

    seabiscuit was only 15.2 hh

    My horse's dam was arab and must have been 'pony' sized but still a horse and my boy's tb sire was huge and grandsire was 17.2!
    My horse, however, is 15h (well 14.3 3/4) and people at te stables call him the 'littlen' :( haha I don't mind, he jumps better and higher than the 16.3s!

    OP- don't worry about it, ignore it, don't sink to their level, love your pony!
