Way back in my youth, yes when the world was black and white, color hadn't been invented my hero's were Marion Coakes and Stroller, Stroller was only 14.1hh and won a silver at the 1968 Olympics in the individual showjumping

And of course more recently, after the invention of color there was Teddy O'Connor, also 14.1hh and sort listed for the Olympic event team, before tragedy struck.

Remember success has little to do with the size of the horse, much more to do with the size of his heart and his talent

You know I never watched Teddy O'Connor before? I'd heard the name but never actually watched him in action. He was an incredible pony. Those fences were enormous and he made them look so easy.

Thank you! Bought her to compete in dressage. Turned out she's even better at jumping.

But since she's mostly is trained in dressage, she tends to jump a bit higher than she needs to sometimes. Lol.
She often goes crazy about them small fences.

But when she calm down, she jumps better.
