Fat Girl Dilemma
So basically, I'm a fat girl horse trainer. I usually train the larger horses, as I have almost as much weight to throw around as they do, lol. But I have, in the past, trained TBs, Warmbloods, Arabs, etc.
Funny combo, no?
I'm 5'8ish and about 225lbs. Pretty solid woman here. However, I am all boobs, and thighs. The boobs are God given, the thighs are from riding :p
I recently started teaching lessons to a few friends, and a few people from my barn. It's something I have fun doing, and something that I feel like if I find the right kind of clientèle (people who don't judge me based on my size of course), I have an actual chance of making it!
I've had an inquiry from a total outside 3rd party (so they've never met me before), and they seem very nice. They're looking for someone to put a miles on their 5 year old Fjord mare for their kids while also giving their kids lessons on their older horse.
I really want to say yes, and get my business kicked off and running, but I'm not sure if they'll be so accepting of a larger trainer, particularly on their 14.3h pony.
First and foremost, I'm worried about the pony vs my fat butt!
So what does everyone think? Will this pony be able to pack my arse around? Should I say yes? Input please!
A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
