I've been horse shopping for what feels like forever. This weekend, I test rode a pony that passed ALL my criteria. I had so much fun on this pony, he is just a little doll. I'm hesitant though, because he is smaller than anything I've ever ridden. I'm worried that he is TOO small for me, and that I just look silly on him. So as not to bias opinions, I'm not going to say how big he is, or how big I am, I am just hoping for some people that don't know me to look at the picture and give honest opinion as to whether we look mismatched.
You look like an adult on a pony who is more than capable of handling your weight.
It might not be the current "industry accepted" perfect pairing depending on what discipline you show, simply from a "pretty picture" perspective. However, since he's just a pleasure pony, you will be totally fine. (And equally totally fine even if you DID want to compete him heavily!)
Seems to be pretty good to me. How tall is he and how tall are you? You want to see silly, I should try and find a picture of me (5'11) on my 13.2ish pony I have super long legs, so even on my 15.1 barrel horse I look a pretty leggy. On my 16.3 TB I look more proportionate lol.
Looks fine to me. My 'little old lady' horse is a 14h quarter horse mare, and I am 5'7", and it works just fine for me. And there are a couple of 6' cowboys who would happily take her off my hands if I were ever so inclined. But 5'9" hubby says I can't sell her because when he very rarely wants to ride, she packs him around just fine.
