Just a query - when i rode bsja as a junior i had a 148 pony until i was 16 years old. Now i ride as a senior on a 16'3 horse. Are the rules literally that under 16s ride 148s and under and after the age of 16 you move into horses over 148cm?
I wondered if ever an under 16 year old can ever ride a horse over 148cm or whether anyone over the age of 16 can ever ride a pony under 148cm? In which category would you be in?

Children can ride horses from the year in which they are 12 and they then compete against adults on horses. Children can compete 14.2's up until the end of the year in which they are 16, 13.2's up until the end of the year in which they are 14 and 12.2's until the end of the year they are 12. Adults (ie over 16) can register ponies as a horse and compete against horses but they cannot compete in pony classes which are for those under 16 on ponies.
