    suzier444, how old was your Lip when you got her? mine was just 3, and just a smidge over 14h in front, and 14.1h behind, 6 months later, she hasn't grown a bit, just matured and filled out. She looks more like a horse now than a baby. Her daddy isn't very big.

    Here is my GRP, 9 y.o. in the photo, our first time out at 4th level & my first time showing in years. I've had him since he was 3 and was so happy to be out there with him. Love this pony!

    This is my girl, Keyhole Watch Fob (Lucy). She was a foray into the unknown for me, because I hadn't had a pony since I rode hunters! However, at 14.2 she was actually a perfect size for me even though I'm 5'7", and she was a nice switch from my big Holsteiners ... much easier to groom and tack up. Unfortunately, she died after colic surgery last year, but I do have her lovely filly, Keyhole Chatelaine, who I'm hoping will be a super dressage pony too

    Very cute ponies! I've got three who I've got high hopes for....

    Here is my 13.3 hand Section B stallion, this photo was from a couple years ago, he was VERY green, but he's schooling 1st level well right now. I've unfortunately been inconsistent with his training. This guy has a great work ethic though, and WANTS to please.

    Next is my 4yo Section A x Arabian mare. She's in foal this year, so she'll be put back under saddle in Fall. I started her last year and this is absolutely the most naturally talented horse/pony I've ever sat on. VERY easy, very smart, sensitive, balanced, just really and outstanding mare. She has three wonderful gaits. I have to admit when I produced this cross I was expecting an excellent sport pony, but I hadn't planned on keeping it as a Dressage mount. This mare is AWESOME.

    Third is my young prospect, time will tell what the future will hold for him. He is a 2yo Section B. He's a huge, balanced mover. Great mind, everything is easy. I have VERY high hopes for him. Here is a weanling picture, I need new ones. One more.

    mbm - Rebel has really filled out and looks like a "hunk" of a guy. Would love to see more pictures of him.

    Dressage Diva - I've admired your stallion for a while. If I still had my son's crabbet bred mare I would be asking about breeding <wink> but given I'm horse rich, money poor best I didn't/don't

    Boy, I am loving all these ponies! It makes me want to breed my small Hanoverian mare to get my very own. I have been thinking of breeding her to get taller, but I might be on the wrong track! Plus, I could tell my husband I was actually thinking of a pony for my daughter. It could be her pony and mommy could train him for her! I am plotting in my mind here. Thanks pony people!

    It worked for me until my kids grew. My daughter is 5'7" and my son is 6'1"; so, now they own/ride the horses; but, I still have the ponies (5'2") He knows me so well......grandkids.......a ways off most likely but, got to think about the future

    thanks - he is finally at a stage where he is looking grownup. and he is honestly not as tank like as i thought he would be - but my trainer says - just wait.....

    we are starting shoulder in and he did a lovely half pass by mistake.... so he will find lateral work very easy... he also has a really nice canter. ... loads of power... his trot will be a work in progress but i am assured that i should not worry.

    i am just having the best time with him!

    I had the pleasure of training up a 13.2hh sale pony last year. He was pulled from Camelot as a two year old and was started late, at five. As far as we can guess, he's Welsh x Arabian and he's adorable. Despite the little package, he has big movement and is a fast learner. I only showed him through training level, but he qualified for championships despite starting the series late and then got reserve champion. I think he would have cleaned up, except I was having an off day and brought him down. Earlier in the series he scored in the 70's and even earned a couple of 9's along the way. He's currently teaching teenagers who aren't quite as ridiculously tall on him as I am. He also has a fantastic jump and is super bold. I think he'd make a wicked eventing pony for a talented young rider.

    I've definitely had my fair share of dressage ponies:

    My first pony, who got me into dressage:
    http://s151.beta.photobucket.com/use...ml?sort=3&o=50

    Then came Casper, who really was one in a million and taught me so much. I went from wobbling around prelim tests to winning at Elementary in under a year on him. He's now at an RDA centre teaching disabled riders

    http://s151.beta.photobucket.com/use...ml?sort=3&o=70

    My mum's 13.2hh NF pony came to us only able to canter to on the right lead and had never done dressage before but she took to it like a duck to water
    http://s151.beta.photobucket.com/use...tml?sort=3&o=0

    Any finally Squishy, my current pony. He's a 14hh connemara and we recently did our first elementary test, coming 4th with 61%. Despite being 17 he's learning lots of new tricks and we're even learning half-pass!

    So many lovely ponies! Here's mine--a nearly 6 year old TBX Welsh C:

    http://thistimedressage.wordpress.com/2012/05/11/finally-some-new-pics-vids/


    The pics/vids above are from last May--lots has changed in our training/his shape since then, but all my other pics/vids are of a very shaggy winter pony--not glamorous!

    He's 15 hands-ish, short-coupled, great overstride, great mind. SO. MUCH. FUN. This winter, I've been jumping him and riding him bareback in the indoor--he's soft in the bridle, filled with energy, and just a blast. Every new challenge seems to strike him as fun/interesting, not overwhelming or nerve-wracking. It's a pleasure to work with a horse with such a cheerful temperament and easy acceptance of new challenges.

    What a wonderful thread! I have big horses that I adore, but I have already decided my next equine will be a Haffie.
