No, she's 15 hands high, adequate enough, and at the time she was doing Gymkhanas, Regional Events, trials, A/P Shows, she was an excellent jumper, solid 1m 20 - 1m 25, hence why she's retired and I've now bred a few foals out of her.

The angle of the camera distorts her, she was preggers at the time as well.

I don't do deal with Pony's, childs play.

Oh ok my bad.

I agree with you on the pony front. I've ridden & owned horses most of my life & have only ever been kicked/bitten by a pony. Nasty, uncomfortable creatures!

What kind of ponies?

I don't mind shetlands, They can be vicious, especially the colts, but I used to tie their legs up and drop them and leave them on the ground overnight. I know some people don't agree with this training method, but it's effective.

Shetlands make excellent show ponies, because after breaking them they are small enough to control, and easily halter trained. I personally believe if your wanting to get a little one out in the paddock and teach them the basics of learning to ride, then Shetland Ponies are the way to go.

I used to teach a few kids around my area horse riding, and I'd always pop them on shetlands 2-3 months getting the basics, before putting them on an old mere I could trust, just to get the feel for a mid sized mount.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Nice, I've personally had nothing to do with Reits before, Here in NZ I think there is only a few breeders.

My best mount was a horse called Toddy (Named after Mark Todd) he was a quarter Clydesdale X Thoroughbred. about 17 1/2 hands, he was hard to control, and not so good around tight corners, but an amazing jumper. He had endurance in him, and would of made a great x country horse. He had a heart attack on a Hunt, and sub sequentially died.

I've mainly dealt with thoroughbreds and standards. I did have a Hanoverian x at one stage, but we didn't get along to well, so I sold him on. probably didn't help that he was 3 when I got him and been left in paddock with little human control, He was going to be my "project" horse, but I think I bit a little more than I could chew.

Apart from growing Olives, Dad's a dedicated trainer in Harness, so alot of what we have nowdays are for Harness Racing, leaving really only me to deal with the Eventing side of things, and even that has essentially taken a back seat, not enough time in the day to pursue it as much as I would like.

They should come pig hunting with me, I'll make them jump out their skin haha
