    Our pony fits into two categories: unknown breeding AND pony.

    She is doing 3rd level now (or she was, before her recent heel bruise)

    I think I need to renew my membership here to post pics, maybe later.

    Mine, well actually my daughters, is a fat but very uphill pony that we guess his a quarterpony, even with his uphill build. Anyone got any guesses to what he is please tell me!!! He will be doing intro with my daughter this coming year and has done training level type in eventing, he has the ability to go to probably 1st level because of his age (14) and by the time she is at 1st level he'll probably be dead or retired

    Heres a photo of a friend and myself riding him

    Hi we also have a great pony-Lascaux Mojo. He took my daughter to Spruce Meadows Battle of the Breeds Team Welsh this year and did jumping, trail, and barrels. Otherwise she is schooling third level and will show second level this year. http://www.showpen.com/plumcreekponies/ He is 14.2 with shoes and a Welsh Cob Section D. We love him! He is 7 and the most beautiful bay. But he is a pony with BIG TIME attitude!!

    Not exactly ponies by breed but most of the time by size they fall into that range or are small horses...my Colonial Spanish horses of the western strains I breed most commonly called Spanish Mustangs or Barbs.

    I have I rescue pony who I think is welsh, but not all that sure. I laugh when people here in the US ask me if she is German! In England they were like pshhh Native thingy. I used to jump her in the 138s but am now too big So I dressage her in FEI ponies

    The year AFTER she was rescued, she looked worse before

    me! me!

    Started sort of by accident, with my 14.3h Pinto 15/16ths Arab. He was supposedly 15.1... that "ayerab" stick. Seriously, it wasn't deliberate misrepresentation, she never had a real stick until he got approved RPSI Sportpony then she got a real one. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/pintopiaffe/sons%20of%20the%20wind%20show/softwalk.jpg
    (more of him on my website)

    At the time I was breeding him UP to bigger, and was all obsessed with WBs.

    I've now come to my senses.

    I am only 5'4", and a cobby 14-15h is ideal for me. Now breeding deliberately for cobs.

    Two new girls are one of DB's fillies--full sister to Promise, a year younger, who will do some semi-cross breeding to Iberian, and because I'm falling in love with the rare breed, will have some CS foals too... the other is a 14h, as wide-as-she-is-tall blue-eyed, medicine hat APHA mare with an Azteca in the oven.
    http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/...sturegraze.jpg

    My jr. stallion may go over cob height, but will be a smaller stallion, with fabulous substance.

    http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/...luke3weeks.jpg
    (he's a long 2yo now, but no current pictures... )

    My guy is workingin 3rd. Hope to go back to showing at PSG in the next year or two. He'll be the first horse I bring from unbacked to FEI. Very high hopes/expectations for the Colonial Spanish filly.

    Default ME!

    i have a Sec D cob mare. Looks like a half brother to xvets Merlin up there. She's a Menai Dambuster baby. Currently 4 and still doing a little growing, but she's presently right at 14h. She's started, but we arent cantering yet. She had a foal, then i had a baby, we are just getting going again and nothing is balanced or "there" yet for either of us for that matter... We did ride in a Christmas parade last weekend!

    She's in the middle:

    Hoping for a training level show in the summer! I have high hopes for her. She's a FABULOUS mover! LOVE cobs!

    OMG, you must be the size of my daughter, who is a super petite 11 year old! You two look lovely together, but I'm figuring it's as hard for you to find breeches and half chaps that fit as it is for her!

    She's cute too. My Dambuster baby is also one of my best movers but I have to give "Mom" credit for that too. My guy is still growing and was hoping for about 14.2 but I think we're going to be a little shy of that. He's 13.3 almost 14 hands now.

    I have an Arabian stallion... he is technically a ponyyyyyy 14.1hh when he need his feet trimmed

    I show Sport Horse under saddle... so not quite sure what exact level we are at... flying changes are our fancy trick as well as some leg yielding... I guess a solid First Level...

    Not me in the pic, but that's my boy ... Black

    I'll brag on her a little more... I would LOVE to get my hands on another Dambuster filly... If you think your guy moves good at 2, just wait. My mare has gotten so much nicer in the past year than i could have ever dreamed! I had a baby in Oct, so i've just started working her again the past two weeks... I see her playing out in the pasture all the time, thats always pretty... But when i put her on the lunge line and she showed me she wanted to work... My jaw hit the ground and i was drooling. My husband was passing by, not the most horsey guy in the world, but he had to stop and watch... Her canter was a little crazy, but when she found a spot to settle into, it even blew me away.

    This was a shot taken last year with a 1 month foal at her side who REALLY sucked some weight off her.
    http://shutter12.pictures.aol.com/da...REA1VC0300.jpg

    But NOW... I need pics of now! The suspension and lift that has developed in the front end... I'm just WOW.

    This is her '07 colt by Menai Discovery. He's in an eventer barn now. Cant wait to see how he develops. Would have kept him if i could have.

    I love that last shot...

    Last winter for kicks we put Reece in the jumping chute to see how she would do... Here's that video:
    http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y67...Reece_0001.flv

    While i would have liked to see her lift the shoulder a little more, she cleared the 4ft jump standards with no effort... Would love to see what she could do now with more muscling in the front end... She loved every minute of it. Any reason for her to show off and she's all over it.

    I dont think she'll get real "thick" like dad. Her dam was fairly narrow. Though riding her bareback in that parade last weekend, she's gotten very broad in her back, felt like i had done the splits for 2hrs when i got off her. I wanted a more "modern" cob than a "heavier" look. She's developing exactly how i pictured she would in my head. My husband has a lovely Irish/TB gelding, but for myself, i'll never own anything other than a cob again!

    And I have one due: arabian (barbary grand daughter) by a Dutch.

    It is rare to see a rider who is truly passionate about the horse and his training, taking a profound interest in dressage with self-abnegation, and making this extraordinarily subtle work one of the dominant motivations of his life.\"
