    Hahaha well I weigh 113 but yeah. And trust me I'm not worried about losing calories like I don't really care about that at alllllll, but it's like I could prove that I actually do something when riding d: and I do eat alot haha.

    I really like that video. Although... Fall ten feet and get back up? Does she have a ten foot tall horse? Because wow, I would be impressed! That would be a 30 hand horse! ;)

    I like to think saddling is at least some work. Throwing that thing on a horse that is taller than me can be hard! I don't' have much upper arm strength, come on! I need to teach her to bow down to make it easier for me.

    Eating a lot and weighing 113 pounds is proof.

    I noticed that as well. I think the idea is that when a rider is on a horse, the distance from the ground to the top of the rider's head is about 10 feet (which is still arguable based on the horse's height and the rider's height). Either way, it's not entirely accurate right there. Still, the epicness of it all is pretty fun.

    Good point. Take them on a nice 10 mile hack and be sure to keep it at a nice big trot. Try to borrow a horse for them that is a bit bouncy.

    They will change their tune pretty quickly. They won't even be able to get out of bed the next day.

    hahaha well the video definitely exagerates some things, like most people, unless your in the olympics or whatever, don't jump above their height d: but we can let everyone think that lol

    Try this one, it's pretty spot on. I reference it all the time to keep track of how much I exercise.

    Calorie value of paddock maintenance

    I think it is surprising to see how many calories we actually burn while riding, but I believe it. I don't think I have ever come off a horse after 45-60 minutes without feeling a little sore.
