Have you watched her ride?

She gave her height and weight and asked if she was a heavy rider.
If she just wanted an opinion of if she was heavy in the saddle she would have posted a video of her riding.

I simply stated my weight and height as I have a new treeless saddle coming in and there are special saddle pads you need to get so I was looking for opinions. You have not been any help AB other then stating to the internet that I am overweight,thank you..much apperciated.

I think the point is you can be overweight according to the BMI and not be a heavy rider (requiring a special pad like the one she linked to which is the reason, I believe, for the thread).

Looking at the picture she posted is more accurate than the BMI.
According to that she is either 25% or 27% overweight. Considering healthy BMI is 24.9 I don't really think that she is "overweight" enough to require special accomodations for her tack.

Nope, I haven't...have you?? If not, how are you going to tell her that's she's a heavy rider?? I've seen people that weigh alot more than she does that rides horses..

Ok, if you want to point a finger and tell her she is over weight what are you?..I've said mine..

AB was actually a lot of help.

The intention of asking if a person is a 'heavy rider' means how they sit and handle the horse. If you have no control of your body - you are 'heavy' or 'hard' on the horse.

Out of curisosity, would a pad help with an unbalanced and heavy rider?
I understand the shock absorption for someone who has more weight, but would it really be that useful for an unbalanced rider?
