OK.. as the title says I'm not a plus size rider, but this is more directed to my best friend, who used to ride a lot when she was younger and smaller.
She really wants to ride and I have more than enough horses for her to ride but her mind is stuck in "I'm too big/heavy" for your horses. And my horses aren't small and stick things.. Their all around 15'2 - 15'3 HH and well built QH's and a Paint. (my one mare is a typical "bulldog" QH and just plows through the trails like nothing!)
I have mounting blocks, a riding arena, saddles that will fit her but she still thinks she's too heavy for my horses.
I've been trying to build her confidence up, I'd love for her to come riding with me.
Anyone have any suggestions ..?
