    I always wanted to be a jockey, but I am too big. I am 5'5 and in great shape at 140lbs. I am very muscular and can't get below 140 no matter what I do, but I am not fat by any means. I am "big boned" I guess... lol sounds so cliche for trying to get out of saying I'm fat. Haha! I guess it wasn't meant to be. :(

    Yeah, that would probably be why I couldn't find much.
    Good to know, thanks :)

    Holy cow! I'm 105 soaking wet. But I'd rather be a pony trainer than a jockey.
