In my opinion, the riders that weigh 120 pound but have no balance whatsoever are more detrimental to a horse's health than a good, balanced 200 pound rider would be.
I'm 5'8" and 199/200 pounds in a size 15/16 pants. I used to be about 150 pounds, which I really did look better at that weight. But with ongoing health issues (low thyroid, low vitamin D, a bad gallbladder, and a bad hip that makes it hard to work out) I gained about 30 pounds in 3 months, leveled out, then another 20 the last 2 months.
I'm not worried about my looks though, I'm happy how I am. 36DD, whoop! Lol.. But I was recently told by my doctor that I'm technically overweight and I should be about 180 pounds or so. Once I recover from gallbladder surgery, I plan to work out again!
The number on the scale isn't what matters, it's your health! As long as you're healthy, be happy! Everyone looks perfect on their horses. :)
