I am a long time plus sized rider, when some of my network mentioned the section of this forum for plus sized riders, I thought I'd mosey over and have a chat! I see a couple of familiar faces. :)
Anyways, here's me!
(My sister is a photography student so she uses me often for her studio assignments!)
I'm 26, located in Eastern Canada and my main squeeze is my fluffasaurus rex, Bronwyn, a coming 7 year old draft cross that came to me as a three year old, had been nearly starved and was completely feral and was landing in her fourth home in six months. For six months, she was pretty much terrified of anything I did with her but would tolerate it. We eventually tried clicker training and all of a sudden, I had a mare with tremendous motivation for work. :)
(Trying out our new Duett saddle! Biiiig girl doesn't fit in the "traditional" XW that most companies make, had to order a 38cm for her!)
I live with my boyfriend, but the other man in my life at the moment is my coming six year old APHA gelding, Rex. He had his first ride this fall, me up... he has a special home with a good friend of mine once I get a little more time put on him. She will definitely appreciate him in a way I just don't have the time to!
I also have his half sister (by the same mare, whom I owned for six years that I lost to colic in 2006) that is on an indefinite lease with a very lovely woman and her adorable daughter - that's Ari, she will be 8 or 9 years old this year.
And then last but not least, my OTHER main man (yes, my boyfriend realizes there are two before him, lol), Morrie, my miniature Australian shepherd. :)
I am very much looking forward to contributing and reading! :)
