She's absolutely adorable in any case!
no offence but you look too big 4 her and the saddle is way to far forward you look awkward on her jumping. ur legs r too long 4 her size. yes i agree that you are balanced on her and she does carry u easily but i would concider getting a "horse". dont get mad at me you asked and i gave u an answer

Yeah, we will get him, but firstly we have to make her some muscles, or we will have to call him every month. Our vet said thatthe saddle fits her, the problem is that she has absolutely no whithers... The saddle has nothig to hold on.

If you get a wintec saddle all you have to do is change the tree.
Coz it doesnt look that comfortable on her.
You can get saddles especially for horses with no withers.

No offence.. but you do look really big on her. Yes she's carrying you easily but I would get a horse if I were you, or at least a bigger pony..

Seriously - The only person who's opinion matters on 'looks' is you - I would ignore posters who say you LOOK too big so buy a horse. Ponies are way underrated - They can be amazing mounts. Your pony is carrying you comfortably, and as long as you are enjoying him/her, stick with it!

I t6hink you look like a very nice considerate rider - Sitting nice and quietly and not interfering too much. I also agree that the saddle is too far forward - Is your crupper rolled/padded on the part that sits under the tail? Maybe it is rubbing her/him. But I agree - They don't look very comfy!

The saddle-problem almost solved. We made the crupper shorter and made pad with bigger front part. For now it's just fine. Through winter we will work on obedience, spring and summer muscles and after building some we will have new saddle made for her.

I think your pony is just adorable! While I agree that you look a bit tall on her and that would count against you in rated shows, you are by no means to heavy for her, she carries you no problem! I'm 6' and 250lbs, and one of the horses I school is a 15.2h warmblood/Qh cross gelding, and while I look a bit funny on him cause my legs are so long, he is super stocky and carries me with no problem what-so-ever!

Good luck with the saddle issues, and don't listen to people who say "you're too big, get a horse" you're fine!
