Arrow opinions please - tell me yours

So I am a bigger girl around 190 and i was recently told that i was not capable of barrel racing due to my weight... which i think i am more then capable

And before you go posting opinions that I'm overweight, it is due to a medicine I used to take for a seizure disorder ...

What is your oppinion

Can you get can on a horse & ride? If so, then you are not too big, and anyone tells you different, tell them to mind their own beeswax.

As long as you have a capable horse you should be just fine.

As long as you have a horse that can handle you with no problem, I don't think there will be an issue =)

People really need to mind their own business. As long as both you and your horse are safe, then it isn't their problem x

Thats just complete bull...my hubby weighs a lot more than that and rides occasionally, and even is thinking of getting a horse to learn cutting and barrels on. How rude that anyone told you that you can't!
