My horse is 15HH
Finally dropping enough weight to feel okay with taking pictures on my girl.
She's finally gained all the weight she needed since I first bought her. (I bought her at 300 lbs under weight. ) and I was 40 lbs heavier at the time.
She's slightly narrow still, but packs me around fine. (No straining, or heavy breathing, or soreness ever. If she was uncomfortable, I'd get off immediately!) Heck, when we stop, she's about ready to fall asleep. (Though in one of these pictures, she's trying to walk toward my friend who is taking the photo. lol)
I hear that I'm too big for my horse all the time. And maybe my legs are long (if only she had a bigger barrel. lol) but I'm still losing weight, and I'm pretty happy with where we are right now. (Though, I'll keep losing weight, ideally!)
Fun fact: my horse and I have about the same length front legs when we stand side-by-side!
I guess what I'm trying to say is: If it doesn't hurt your horse, and it makes you happy, then ride! <3 Don't try to please others at the expense of making yourself miserable, because it is nearly impossible to make everyone happy.
Would love to see more pictures of plus sized ladies and gents on their pretty ponies! Feel free to respond with pictures. C:
