I adopted a haflinger pony last year, she is 3 and is going into cart training soon. I want to break her to ride later this year, but I am worried I am to big for her. It would only be light riding and walk-trot maybe a little bit of canter(so she learns what a canter is) Only a few times a week if that.
I am 5' 7"(or around that) and weight around 230-240lbs. She is around 12.3-13hh and weighs around 800lbs(more at the moment because she is kind of fat)
Latest Picture I have:
(Me and her)
Do you think I would be to big? I know that if she is having trouble carrying my weight I WILL get off, and I don't plan on starting her until later this year around summer, after she is broke to drive.
