Hi,;)
So i've been riding this about 14 something pony, that is REALLY SUPER cute.
He is really sweet and sensative, but can get grumpy sometimes.:mad:
I'm about 1.54m tall, and I look slightly big on him.:(
But the thing is, he is an AWESOME pony, just the kind i like, responsive and peppy.:)
I've ridden other horses and ponies, but when i'm on him, we just click.

I want to keep riding him but i look kinda big on him, and i don't want to change horses/ponies.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?!?:(:eek::oops:o_O

Why worry about looking too big, or what people think about you riding a pony?
The important thing is if he can carry you easily and without strain on his back or joints, the saddle fits him and you and he's happy and enthusiastic going about his work.
I would say go ahead and enjoy. I too am a pony rider and really enjoy it.

If your concern is that you are too heavy for him that's another matter.
