I know that pony

I know that pony!!!!!!! I used to ride him he is great I used to jump him 3'. I ride with your old instructor but unfortunatley my instructor who used to own him isnt friends with the people who bought him so he wont always be available and he is also 17 and he is a medium he is 13 hands not 12.2. Also I have watched your lessons and you didnt jump 2'9 you jumped 2'3-2'6.

Yeah I got his height wrong. It was a guess. And I know you jumped him 3' which is why I said in my original post "he has gone up to 3' with other riders taller than me." Now I don't know who you are but if you have watched the lessons, yes, I do jump 2'3'' - 2'6'', but I did jump him 2'9'' in two different lessons near to when I left.

Not like any of it matters now because I'm not going to buy him -- my parents won't let me.

I have talked to this person so I'm only saying what I heard from her. Now, I would really appreciate it if you would drop the whole subject. Stop commenting on my youtube videos and telling me over and over again that you have jumped Ricky 3'. I'm not buying him and it's none of your business anyways. You and your friends were mean enough to me at the barn, I don't need you bringing it online too now that I've left. I don't need any of the crud that you and your friends keep giving me so lay off and mind your own business.

Personally I don't think you look huge on him. But you are 15? Your getting near the end of growing, but it is a possibility that you will out grow him. If you are doing pleasure riding and occasonally a local show here and there, im sure you will be fine.

How much do you weigh? You don't appear to be over 110. Again, a horse should carry 1/4 of its weight, people underestimate ponies strength, they are still powerful animals. I am 5'4'' and 125 and ride a 14.1 arabian in endurance lol.

Please excuse the double post:

Im sorry to hear that you will not be purchasing him!

And I know what you mean, I was verbally abused over and over by girls at my old barn, and they continued it even after I left. : | it really is rediculous, people just enjoy to be-little one another.

Thanks. :) It's okay. A larger pony would be better anyway... I'll probably wait until after college to find the perfect pony for me.

Hi, I went to your old barn. You used to ride my pony and I lessoned with you once or twice I think and I don't think I was ever mean to you since we barely ever spoke but I just wanted to say sorry for anything I said/did to offend you cause that was never my intention so hopefully no hard feelings and good luck at your new barn =]

Sorry if I hurt your feelings me and my friends were never trying to be mean to you we have known each other for years so we are all really close and we are all at the barn everydayand we never really talked to you enough to be mean. I understand that you could not come out to the barn as much as us but if you had im sure we would have been friends with you too. As for ricky I only posted because I wanted to make sure you knew that he wasnt available so you wouldnt get your hopes up. He was a super pony and we all miss him so much. My instructor couldnt afford him anymore=[ I've seen your videos of you with your new horse your getting great with him! Other than that if your looking for a pony I know a great one that I think you know that's for sale. Good luck at your new barn! And again sorry

You do look a little tall, but you're also pretty thin. I don't think you look too heavy, anyway. It's probably not a good idea to be going over any big fences on him, though.

I'm sorry for overreacting. :( It's just... G and I used to be best friends and she helped me meet people at the barn cause I was really shy, but then we had a huge fight in 7th grade and ever since then I've had nobody really to talk to at the barn, because it just felt awkward talking to people when she was there. And I guess I was jealous cause you all had a close group and your own horses and stuff and I kinda felt left out... but it wasn't really your fault
