I know we've had threads on your paint/appy/other and TB hunter jumpers, but I don't think we've had any for the ponies! If you have a pony you ride/own, or one your kids ride, post pictures! Hey- even if you're riding it because you still love ponies as an adult. :)

These are of my pony Flicka. I've had him since he was a 4 year old, it'll be 5 years that I've had him next spring. He's a Welsh cross and the absolute love of my life! 12.3 hands and fiesty but gentle when he has to be. Jumps up to 3' and does everything from games, to hunters and jumpers, to cross-country. He's currently being free-leased out to a therapy type program but I plan on having my future kids learn on him. ;)

A pony I showed in the greens years ago (his name is Pillsbury - how cute is that)

This was Spider 13.3 and all talent. Went everywhere out hunting without much (any?) help. Showed. Swam. Picked berries. Fence is 4'

Doozer, my daughter's pony was a great one too. We got him because he was owned by a trainer and declined to do any more ring work. Didn't bother us.
Turnout is GM's worst nightmare...

Oh My. Goodness! What an awesome photo- i love the smile :) :) It looks like my idealized version of horseback riding when i was a kid. Big, easy smile, cute willing pony... Heck, it looks like the cover of a saddle club book (and i DO mean that in a very good way!)

Sep. 27, 2010, 08:45 PM
OK, couldn't find a photo of Patches already online, so here's the next-best ;)
This is Zimon, part arabian.
I went for my trial ride at the new barn with the trainer (also BO) on this pony. Part-way through the ride, I found myself flying- arcing with perfect precision and trajectory into the 10ft puddle in front of the jump we were supposed to be headed over *together*. Stood up, spat out the sand, and my new trainer says, "Yes, you two will do very well together..."
Rode him for 2 years until I was moved onto an OTTB with issues of his own, ha (but at least he didn't mind some water on his hooves!!)

My favorite pony ever... I rode and showed him for as long as I could. He was very tough to ride, he had the lovely habit of rearing and lunging if you didnt keep him busy enough. What an awesome jumper he was though! I always wished for him to grow overnight, 13 hands would have been fine, he was a mere 11 hands.

Thanks for the kind words; that's my daughter riding in a Gambler's Choice class, which was run as a fundraiser. Daughter and pony had a blast! He's a great guy who had never jumped when we got him. Since then, he and my 4 girls have taught each other a lot!
Loved the story of you and Zimon...he looks too cute to be naughty!

Madeline, loved the pic of Spider!

This is my quarter pony, Sam, the love of my life:

My favourite wee small Thelwell lesson pony to ride, Honeybear:

When I ride her, I have overwhelming urges to wear sparkly Fraggle Rock t-shirts, bright green schooling helmets, blue sparkly breeches, and a polka-dot saddle pad:

These are also some of MY favorite ponies LOL!! They are all great with the kids and even cart around my very hyper 3 yr old LOL!! I have 2 to add to this list and I think llsc will agree that they fully deserve to be added!

This is Emily Elizabeth, she is DD's first pony, the most amazing pony EVER, she carts both my 6 yrold and my 3 yr old cross country, shows without much prep and would jump the moon if DD asked her too!

And here is Stonewall Surprise Surprise, he was broke in Nov , came to us in April and has been my 6 yr olds green pony project all summer, he also shows and goes cross country with NO spook or even a hit of worry!! We love them both so much!!!

This is my favorite pony- her name is Kitkat and we call her Wonderpony. She LOVES to jump, and sometimes feels that it's ok to leave out a horse stride. If she were a large, she'd be the ultimate pony jumper, and if she were a horse she'd be in the GP ring!

http://s803.photobucket.com/albums/yy319/blackcat1395/?action=view&current=DSC_0280.jpg

She's free jumped over 4', and jumped under saddle up to 3'6. She's done Pony Hunters, eqs and medals, Puddle Jumpers, walk trot, leadline... she's awesome.

It's a wonderful photo- i can tell they had a great time together!

I do wish my parents took more photos when i was that age and older- but every time i'd get all self-conscious, especially when on horseback... now im kicking myself- how cute would those pics have been, really?! :)

Also, "Boots" or Sock it to Me. He was my first pony. He was my first jump, show, and first time getting bucked off! Boots is an amazing pony who has captured the hearts of everyone at the barn despite the fact that he has thrown all of them off at least once!:winkgrin:
