It was. The standards are very tall, it might be throwing you off a bit.

i agree that the jump doesnt look that big but the horse certainly doesnt look 12hh :roll: my guess is around 3ft by the looks

Sorry I haven't replied in a while - I was on vacation.

Those are 6 foot standards, so if that's throwing you off sorry... And he is most certainly not 12hh, he is just so amazingly built, he looks like a little package :P. But when you stand up next to him, he is actually bigger than he seems.

Obviously the person who told you that hadn't seen Teddy O'Connor, who was a much better poster child (14.2ish, and competed upper level eventing, including several top-place finishes at the Rolex). My sister also saw a 13 hh Stallion win a Grand Prix a few years ago. Ponies can do amazing things. At the moment I show Brutus 2'9" but my goal for him is Junior Amateur Jumpers (3'9") before I even consider selling him (unlikely).

He is a lovely pony. A very athletic little guy who loves his job no doubt. Looking forwards to seeing pictures of you 2 together

Thanks.

He's very athletic, and the only thing holding him back is my ability.

If anyone wants to see there are videos of him jumping on my youtube, including him and I jumping 3'9" (not very well... haha but we tried) at http://www.youtube.com/user/upsidedownbrutus .
