I have to agree with this part though. Not just bones, joints as well.

However I don't think "plus" always = "out of shape". I also have seen "plus" riders to be very good riders with the great seat and hands with happy horse carrying them around. And those who take riding seriously (whether "plus" or not) will ALWAYS care for the horse well-being. So personally I'd say yes, the big chunk of that article sounds quite insulting.

The same thing could be said about driving and other things

It may be insulting, but in the context it is written it is probably true. That is why I broke it down, if you do that it's hard to argue for them to pull it.

I think that section was certainly not written as well as it could/should have been for sure.

But have you looked at that site? They're not talking about the 1-2 hour trail rides. These are riding holidays, most of which are 5-7 days long (the minimum seems to be 3 days). That could be why they are a bit more, errrr, emphatic about rider fitness.

I think as already mentioned the person who wrote it doesn't sound very professional (at least to me). If we consider people who don't know how or barely can ride then yes, I definitely see the point of the article (the perfect example is trail riding barn where most people coming to ride have no experience, so weight will come in addition to bouncing around). But when it comes to people who know how to ride and do it for years - not so much. And as for jockeys it's the whole other beast. I'm not a plus really, but I'd NEVER qualify to be one with my height and wide bone structure (so I weight quite a bit I have to say :) ).

The problem here is that most of this information is more or less true, no offense to anyone who believes otherwise. But it's just offensive to the people that it is projected to. The author or the article should have taken a little more consideration when writing it.

Who cares what anyone says. It is how you want to feel, how you want to look and how much discipline you will have to achieve it and how much indulgence you allow yourself. Do a bit of reading, watch fitness & health show, it's all it takes. If you are comfortable in how you look & how you feel and don't care to make changes, ignore what anyone says, it's their problem, they don't live in your body. We all have to live our health, body, image choices, everyone else, get lost.
