Welcome to the forum!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

It is amazing how little one's weight can come to mean when in the saddle. But, having a horse that is not troubled by one's weight is important. I ride a 16 hh appy, who I am sure is not troubled by my 200lbs. But even more fun is riding my friend's 17hh 1400 draft cross, for whom I am like a fly on his back!

Welcome to the forum !

I know how you feel, I just got my new horses and I have gained a lot from when I rode before, I worry about my horse lol. I did want horses 15+ hands for my size, and now I have a horse thats so fat he makes me look like a super model lol. I am hoping working him in the round pen and so on will also help me lol

Thought I would let everyone know - I tried the big Haffie today and he carried my big butt around like it was nothing, and we had a lot of fun so I put a deposit on him and pending the vet check, he's mine! =)

Oh! Hubby got one or 2 pictures before my daughter dragged him off to see the ponies. Here's one - not a good shot of me, but he looks cute =)



I look like I might be ready to cry. I actually did cry because I was so happy =P

Welcome to the forum, silver!

P.S. So is your daughter also looking into riding (based on your post)?

Well, she's done lots of pony rides, and seems to have the bug, but she's only 3.5 years old so I have just been letting her do as much as she wants. She's asking for a pony now, so we're going to try to get an older small pony for her this summer - hopefully she really will love it as much as I do! I'd love to go riding with her =)
