Too big?

I still own my first pony and can't part with her, i did try to put her out on loan and thought id found the perfect home for her unfortunatly with in 4 weeks it wasn't working out and i didn't feel she was being looked after properly so i took her back, she dropped a huge amount of weight and was a bit under the weather but with good feeding she's now alot better and needs to start being ridden again i have tried to find someone but have been unsuccesful.

She's 13'1 welsh a x appaloosa and is quite fine. At 5ft 8 im way to tall for her but at 7 and a half stone i don't think im to heavy is it a good idea for me to bring her back into work myself?

Yeah I think that would be fine (:
welsh's are good weight carriers, i have a 13hh welsh mare, and i'm 5"7 and about 9st + she manages to do jumping + pony games with me without a problem (:
As long as you feel you're both comfortable, it's fine
