all of you that have riding as a part of your life try your best to never let yourself get into a situation where you can't ride even if you want to because its HORRIBLE!
yes im over wieght but I would never get on a horse that I thought I ould cause any pain to but people can't understand that..... sorry for the 3rd rant but im still very upset about this whole subject.
WOW that is TERRIBLY UNFAIR!! You'd think that these ppl that have horses they want to lease out would be HAPPY to have a good rider wanting to exercise their horses and pay part of their bills.... it's CRAZY IMO to discount a 180lb woman from riding a HUGE TB!! I mean COME ON!
And like someone else said I've seem many many large men 200+ on small 14.2hh quarter horses and NOBODY seems to care. Why is it that We allow these skinny riders to play on our guilt??
I was slim when I rode as a kid and now i'm older about 240lb and I have a 17hh Warmblood who carried me NO problem. Sometimes ppl look at me when i'm riding in the road and I always thought they were just saying "Hey there is our neighbor riding her horse, nice lady.." but now I wonder ....
Jesus Christ look at that big ass lady on that poor horse :) lol he's ornery and well fed that sucker owes me a little fun now and then LOL....
I wished you lived by me I'd welcome you to come out and ride any time and I have 3 big horses 16.2hh to 17hh. We have a nice mounting block, trails and a really nice arena. Come on down girl you are always welcome at Wild Acre Farms.
