I have just recently gotten back into horses. I stopped riding years ago because of weight and health issues. For my anniversary 2 months ago my wonderful husband bought me a Percheron gelding. I had said I'd ride again when I didn't feel bad for the horse that had to carry my fat ass... Well he found a horse that has no issues carrying me around!!!! Well I couldn't be happier, but still there are issues... Sure I can ride with no issues but I'm finding it extremely hard to do ground work with him... So... he is now my motivation to get fit again!!!! He is only 5 and there is so much more I want to do with him as far as training goes... but I need to be physically strong enough to do it... So here goes nothing.... New Years resolution is a stronger mind, body and soul... and my big boy is going to help get me there!!!!
I just wanted to share this... Figured maybe if I put it out there for others to know about it may make me more accountable for accomplishing my goal :)
By the way... I love this forum and especially this part of it!!!!
