    New here!

    Hi Everyone! I'm Brit and I just wanted to introduce myself :P, Im 19 years old and i've been riding since I was 10-anywho-I never had a weight problem until I broke my back last year on a hunter jumper course. (ouchies is right). Now Im 250lbs. Even though im back in the saddle again working with a 10 year old trakehner gelding I find my self loosing some confidence. Id really like some people to relate to or something =/!

    Also am I to heavy for him? (He is a little out of shape hay belly and all, his owner didn't ride him so im working with him now, via why he looks like a giraffe!) he is a 16.3 almost 17hh trakehner gelding

    He does not appear to be stressed in that photo.

    Welcome to the board! And way to go getting back in the saddle! I think you and your horse look just fine.

    I also don't think he looks stressed. I would love to see a pic side on, though!

    I am so happy for you that you have recovered enough from your injury to ride comfortably. DO IT, sister!

    Hi and welcome, glad to hear that you got over an accident like that and got back in the saddle, well done.

    That looks like a really nice horse you are riding, and you look fine on him to me.

    Ahhh Trakehner! My dream 'fancy' horse

    I think you look quite well suited to him. He has a nice solid build, so I doubt carrying you bothers him.

    You also really don't look your size!
