    Wow what an awesome pony!! Bet he's a blast!!

    For those wondering, 1.48 meters is 148cm, of which there are 2.54 in each inch. This means the pony would be 14.2 and a quarter here.
    You can't fix stupid.... but you can breed it!

    Google Calculator gave me this:
    58.26772 inches = 14.56693 hands

    I know people showing ponies in the 1.20m in Canada.

    Awesome!! I always wonder how many of these super stars get overlooked because the majority of us underestimate the abilities of most horses/ponies. They really are such incredible creatures.

    Yes but sadly not in actual pony classes with pony striding! Does make it much harder to gallop around 1.20+ if you have a pony that cannot do horse strides. I adore watching pony's really jumping and just wish that we did it more like Europe, where kids can actually move up to real heights

    I think she´ll be alright. The height of the fences in the Europeans "drops down" to 1,35 and the difference between horse distances and D-pony distances are not that big. But as you say, she´ll get a fairer chance and doesn´t need to "go off a forward shot" at every fence.

    Very cute!! That is a tiny indoor and yes it would have trouble making the strides at shows such as Spruce or WEF held in large outdoor arenas.

    Well, here is the pony in a much larger outdoor arena, and she seems to be handling it ok. A couple awkward spots, but the triple was no problem (lots of clucking and smooching from the stands) and obviously made the jump off and went clear...
