    I gave up worrying what strangers think about my riding a very long time ago.

    As long as my trainer and horse are happy, those are the only opinions about which I'm concerned.

    Just because someone's thin doesn't make them a good rider, and just because someone's heavy doesn't make them a bad rider.

    I'm a plus sized rider at 5ft 10 and 270lbs (i used to be close to 290, i've been working hard!). I have been told at the last barn I took lessons at that my seat was wayyyy softer the then skinny 115lb girl. I had a friend's mom tell me i'm way too big for my horse, but he carries me just fine. And its not like I take him out and jump him, or gallop him. It a lot of walking, some trotting, and a small bit of cantering. I hate it when people think horses are babies and can only carry tiny people. I beg to differ!
