me and jester about 5 years ago

hey have been so scared to ask for critique in case people abuse me because of my weight so i thought id post pick of me about fours years back when i was just beginning in English style riding. YES I KNOW I WAS OVERWEIGHT i have lost weight since these pics but do not want any critique of my weight the pony is very stocky and supported me well. he is a 14.3hh welsh arab gelding who i recently sold we went on from these height to grade 1 pc.

I dont tend to critique often. So i'll just say 3rd pic it looks like your lower leg could do with being just a bit further forward. And 4th pic your stirrups look a bit too long. But you look great together. I love the last pic, looks like a nice size jump too.

I think your pony is lovely, and you certainly both enjoyed yourself. Its good to see people having fun with their horse/ponies.

And I dont think you look overweight at all. :)

I promise, so one here will say anything negative about your weight, the other mods and I will be sure of it. Besides, your weight looks perfectly fine!

hey you dont look overweight!
anyway in the 1st photo i think you should have more leg contact
in the 3rd your legs are to far back (a common problem with jumping)
in the 4th your stirrups do look a little long
and the last picture looks and your horse both look really good!!

Only idiots can critique the weight (excuse my language). You look just good on your horse.

BTW, the girl in my area I know (who is REALLY heavy) team penn like a dream. One of the best I'v seen..
