    I love eventing size because size of the mount doesn't matter! I have competed twice on my daughter's 13.3 hand pony. Not one person laughed at me or told me I was too big for her.

    The only problems I had when riding Lucy were fending off small girls who were cooing over the adorable white pony

    That's awesome! I am 5'7" myself and ride a ton of ponies- nice to know I am in such good company

    So fun! Her tail is cracking me up; I think she's revving up with it...

    I got a huge kick out of reading your blog all the way back to the start. It amazed me how just 3 years ago you were talking about attempting your first BN event, then Novice, then Training, then handing the reins over for Prelim, now a CCI*.

    Nice job! I love her! I'm a proud pony rider myself, Felix is only about 13.2 and we seem well matched. I'm going to have to send him out for some jump schooling once I can afford it - too many years of time off have made me too timid to teach him through the bad stuff...

    I think this pony's life would make a good book/movie!

    Sire, and she is for sale because niece no longer riding. She is a character, her nickname is pushy pony because she wants to be the boss...quite bold!

    Have you seen him in person? Forrest is back showing with Jill Hardt at 4th and ready to go PSG soon. I have a photo somewhere of him laying in a stall with some girls crawling all over him and he obviously loved the attention!

    Yes!! I am happy to hear he is showing with Jill. I have an 8 year old warmblood I bought from Treveyan when he was a few weeks old...Forrest was there then.
    Lesley's brreding program is top notch, I have purchased three babies from her and all three are wonderful! (1 pony, 2 warmbloods)

    BEST.PONY.EVER. But her name doesn't fit-she's a Forrest Warrior, not a Nymph.
