Moment of Inertia at a point away from centre of Mass.

Lets say we are sitting on a horse at the edge of a merry-go-round. You move faster relative to a point near the centre of the merry go round. Now most of the mass of this merry go round is at the edge i.e at the horse. So the moment of inertia at the horse is less. Correct me if I am wrong.

Now we all know that the speed at the edge i.e at the Horse is more. Lets say the velocity is more at the Horse. If velocity increases the distance should decrease according to law of conservation of angular momentum. Doe this prove that the Horse is near the centre of mass and so does not violate the law of conservation of angular momentum?
