I have not seen a plus size rider and I was shocked to find this forum!! I love this!! I read so many stories about other plus size riders that I no longer feel alone about being plus size in the equine world!!!
Im 5'2-5'3 (haven't measured in along time :P) and am 250.
I've ridden horses all my life, but consistently for the past 6 or so years. I've been told Im to big to ride but that has never detoured me from doing something I adore. I've learned to do small jumps and barrels, I've learned the joy of having four-legged animals that don't care about my weight, as long as I love them, they love me!!!
Thanks for reading, just wanted to express my happiness
