I mean the OP NOTHING but the best.
Just because George Morris said it you think it is okay?
No one is denying that the OP is talented. Myself and the other posters, if you could not understand what we wrote, think it is not your place to tell a young girl to lose 10-12 pounds.
I do not know your background, so I want to ask out of curiosity, do you show jumpers, dressage or event and know George?
