    He will be fine.... lots of good advice here but in essence almost all horses as they develop their rear end, it won't be an issue.

    Used to see a lot in STBs and gaited horses.

    Lots of nice Connemara stallions at present. I too would go for a purebred unless you want to go larger. I think a purebred has more value than a half bred pony.

    Unless you breed to a draft type pony, I think you will never get "too much bone" for an eventer. So pick a stallion you like and don't worry about the bone would be my opinion.

    I think Briggs traditionally has had some large offspring in his halfbreds but his purebreds are smaller. I know Joan has had a few QH mares produce 16 hh offspring from Briggs.

    I think based on your post the Warrenton area would be best for your needs. All the other areas mentioned are still accessible for equine pursuits but do NOT have a younger vibe.
