Beginner - Looking to learn and develop

Hi all, I am Mike. My GF is Helena and we are looking at riding lessons, lessons to take care of horses, and horse ownership later. Helena has owned horses before and has taken lessons. My experience has solely been trail rides.

I am a heavier rider 250lb, and am exploring what horse to get. I expect to be at 230 by the time I am ready to look for a horse. I would not expect to be able to get below the 230 mark as I am pretty muscular build.

I have been told by the trail guides that I carry myself well on the horse (I am thinking maybe either because they are being nice to the guy paying them or it might be my motorcycle background (riding for 30 years, raced professionally 2 years) will find out when the lessons start.

Have been reading a bit for the past few weeks and look forward to continue learning. I am not sure there are many questions to ask now as there is a very handy search feature to the forum.....
