Cutest Jumper
 
I am a working student at a hunter training barn and, being the smallest, I get to ride the ponies! The littlest girl in the barn is Lulu and I've been bringing her back into jumping this summer. Shes a connemara cross pony and is around 6/7 (not sure). She is to be my trainer's daughter's pony when she's old enough. Don't mind my equitation, I've just started jumping and riding again after a long break. (plus, it's not my saddle and the stirrups are too long)

the stirrups are def too long, as you said. But good for you for making it look fun and easy! (and on such a wee little mare!)
I never rode ponies growing up... but i too am pretty small, so now as an adult i tend to get to school the little ones from time to time. Truth be told, a genuinely good hunter pony out here goes for big big money. You might think about training and selling ponies! ;)

Yea I've ridden ponies all my life and love riding them. the farm I work at now sells horses for big money and another pony I ride is for sale for more than 20k. Its kind of surreal to be around very influential horse people with a lot of money after I've always ridden with local riders. My friend actually said I could be a pony rider but I'm not sure I'd be successful doing that. Not that I wouldn't love to, but I just am broke as broke can be!
