    Don't you say.

    I was going to guess an antelope cross.;P

    This one has potential but I recommend placing a pole in front of the jump to encourage him to actually jump it instead of just trotting over it.

    He could also use a fake tail, and braids would be nice.
    You can't be serious. This is a leg hanger. The most dangerous of jumping styles. And sending him into the eventing game would only result in a rotational spill.

    What was Colbert up to there? At first I thought he was wearing breeches, but I guess they were just white pants.

    Here is a pony that shows excellent jumping style with a lovely expression. Unfortunately, he will probably not match up to his horse brethren in a show.

    I think he's adorable! Very suitable for short-stirrup. Probably wouldn't be able to make the lines above a 2' 6" course, though.

    Wow! Is that picture real?? If so, I love the look on the face of his friend to the right.

    It's remarkable how athletic some of these things are, especially considering that some of them are built to be pretty heavy on the forehand!

    Here is another pony, out on a cross-country course. Very cute expression, but could use some gymnastic work.

    I dunno, CS. While I adore flat leather on a bridle, I think finding one to make his head not appear so...ample...might be challenging.

    He certainly won't win the model.

    I'm not so sure about finding a saddle to fit those withers.

    He doesn't have to, if he jumps every jump that well.

    This guy will teach me to sit up, no throwing my upper body forward if I want to keep my eyes and teeth.

    Thanks for the correction. Being from Long Island, the only deer species I can identify with any accuracy is the good old fashioned white-tailed deer.

    And I do know a moose when I see one.

    This Lipizzaner pony shows complete mastery of "airs above the ground."

    This one shows possible talent in the puissance.
