It IS a good school program, period. Sorry you don't think so, but it is. I've been there, met with the coach, observed her training, seen the horses, seen the barns, etc. It's a great program.

Just to muddy the waters...Don't rodeo riders (bronc, not bull) have to be 175lbs or less? This is just a vague memory from a program many years ago.

The population as a whole is getting heavier, and not for good reason. I see this as the person in charge taking a stand, to advocate for the horses, in a way that is measurable, and less subjective.

If they really cared about the horses they wouldn't be using horses that are "intermittently lame" for a riding program that has them being used several hours per day. If the college really wanted to have a horse program they could find sound horses and purchase or lease them. As a parent I would discourage my kid from riding in the program regardless of wieght if all of the horses were not sound. I guess thier right to want to limit the wieght they are putting on crippled horses.

No one is going to change their minds. Kevin it's a good thing your a male because you can't get into the riding program anyways! :)

I don't ride at my college because it's way too expensive.

Go back and reread what Kevin has told you and what you have said. What kind of program would use horses like that? That there donated is a very poor excuse.
