Sorry no pictures as im not at home.
My two are 12.2hh and 12.3hh and i'm 5ft 6 and about 9 and a half stone atm.
They both carry me fine and one still gallops and bucks with me when he's excited and the other still bolts off with me.

Aww I’m 5 8 and was riding my friends very feisty 13.2 Welsh section A For a while. I’m 70kg and she seemed very capable and happy to run amuck with my weight ( I was actually happy to be closer to the floor in case of emergency dismounts from that madam…🤣🤣)

Very old thread.

Today I had the opposite. Vet, yo and I were chatting about highland ponies. I said I would quite like a proper show quality ridden highland pony. Yo told me I should as my horse is far too big for me, I don’t need a horse that size.

I don’t think it matters a jot what other people think. As long as the horse can comfortably carry you does it matter?
