What Del said.
It is of absolutely no benefit to you now. if you ever need to sell her, it will have a *big* effect on her value.
AND you can go to a rated show, but you'll be restricted to unrated or schooling divisions.
At 14.1 she is absolutely a large pony, and smaller than lots out there showing.
Anticipating the next question, the signifigance of all this is a 14.3 animal has to compete in a division with full size horses, where they will invariably have to gallop for the distances and jump a little flat. If the same animal is 14.2 trimmed short but still sound, it can show in the pony divisions, canter the lines, and jump up round and pretty over its fences.
If that animal can also take up a 5'5" 17 year old's leg and make her look appropriately sized, when that kid couldn't make the step up to Children's or Juniors, you officially have a very expensive pony.
