It depends on the pony. I'm 5 foot and weigh 10 stone and my pony is 14.1 and a bit, and I wouldn't want to put on any more weight as I think it wouldn't be fair on him. But he is a finer sporty Connemara type so if your horse was a more chunky cob type I'm sure it would be fine.

Welcome to NR, this is a very old thread, but introduce yourself on a more up to date one - e.g. hacking and riding, or coffee shop ;)
