I rode today for the first time in 8 years!

I weigh 250 lbs, roughly. (Down from 287, so yay!) I recently leased a very sturdy, 16 hh appaloosa gelding. He is so pretty, and I love him to pieces.
I was terrified I weighed too much for him, but he toted me around all afternoon, with no issues what so ever. In fact, at one point while resting, I was talking to my trainer and he fell asleep! What a ham.

Anyways, I'm new to this forum, and new to getting back to riding, so I am so excited meet all of you! And to have someone to talk equine to, my family is already so tired of it!

Me and my boy Gaylen.
