...Am I just to big to ride horses?



I see all these skinny girls riding, and I can't help but think i'm way too big to ride. It pains me. I don't want to quit riding, but I don't want to hurt my horse. Am I too big?

No you are not too big to ride
don't worry it looks like your horse is strong enough
to carry you

I am a larger rider as well
and I love your Paint

I've seen an 80 pound child jump on a horses back and ride in a way that made me wince just to look at. Just the same I have seen 200 pound plus riders doing wonderful jobs.

You know what they say: It's not the size that counts, it's what you do with it

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

You don't look fat Megan, you look shapely, curvey, womanly, a nice shape

Seriously? Girl, look at your waist! It's tiny!

Just like GH said, you have curves. That's a GOOD thing.

Keep riding, have fun, and don't worry.
