Sophie and her pony
Don't you just adore horses? Our friend, Sophie, really loves horseback riding and she's worried about something unusual - outgrowing her horse. The trouble is that Sophie is growing taller. Let's try to help!
i have a problem. i'm getting tall. very very very tall. i am starting to not fit on my pony anymore and it makes me sad. she is a medium. i know that my mom stayed on her small til her feet were dragging the ground but im still worried.
i am only ten and i am a size eight in women's shoes. i have huge thumnails apparently and that means im going to get tall. i'm starting to hit puberty accourding to mom and i have already had two growth spurts. the direction that this is going in is that i'm worried im going to get too tall to ride anymore... i know that is silly sounding bc there are tall horses out there but. anyways please answer my questions because i have asked alot,
First off, you're definitely not alone when it comes to worrying about height. Lots of girls write in about this. Some feel too tall, like you. Others feel too short. Keep doing what you love - in this case - riding horses. Can you talk to your mom about your worries about your pony?
Also, check out this article for good information about height.
