Well... I'm sorry I gonna be very harsh here (and all my comments are not related to the OP at all)....

First, I agree she's WAY too big for that pony. And frankly I don't get how she doesn't understand it herself. IMO it's something pretty close to abuse.

And second, some stuff she's doing are extremely stupid. Especially considering bunch of beginners and kids watching that and probably thinking "cool! why not to try that with my own horse!".

P.S. I do remember discussions here about Nevzorov methods she's using (too lazy to do some search). From this clip looks like he doesn't teach such things as "common sense".

The girl probably doesn't wiegh 120 lbs and the pony is probably 4-500lbs. I don't think it's abuse in any way. The pony doesn't appear to be foundered and he is deffinately well broke regardless of the methods she used so the pony is better off than 80% of ponies. She is tall and looks funny riding the pony but the pony seems to be carrying her just fine.

Perhaps we need to think about the term abuse before we throw it at people.

Agreed with kevinshorses. Just because someone looks silly on a pony, does not automatically make them to big or abusive. This isn't someone who weighs 100lbs riding a miniature horse. She's tall, but so is Shay-la and she regularly broke in 13hh ponies. She looks ridiculous because she's 5'10" and all legs but she's 120lbs on a good day. Not one of those ponies had a single problem carrying her, and due to an experienced adult training them, all went on to good homes as very useful and trustworthy children's mounts which is ultimately what you want.

Very cute video and kudos to her on all her hard work.

Horse suppose to carry up to 20% of own weight, right? And even that depends on horse's build (some may go over it, some under). From what I see I do NOT think it's under 20%. And horse is pretty slim build. So I still stand my opinion - it's way too much on that horse.

i am a follower of this girl on youtube. and that welsh pony Karin is fabulous!! that weight is definatly not to much for a pony as ponies are built to carry more weight as that was what they were originally bred to do. this girl trained and broke this pont for her younger sister.. who also rides bareback and bridless as a 2 and 3 year old. go look at the rest of her videos then come back and say that.. the little girl can rear and make it bow and with a saddle and helmet and bridle she can gallop and jump the horse as well. that pony is highly trained and it needed an adult rider to do so. sorry if i seem rude but i am voicing my opinion. that horse and both girls adult and 3 year are great and the pony is in perfect condition. so i think it's absolutly fine. i have to agree with Kevin.
