So yes I have decided to try riding again in the spring. And its not that I always feel that I am too big that I can't ride. I'm not a giant fan of the "smaller" horse breeds. I like the bigger draft and draft crosses. I always have even when I was younger and smaller. Evansk has a fabulous horse for me to ride, so I know it will be fine, but i'm still nervous. I head south to the big city for other reasons this week but I am going to check out some tack shops for saddles. Evansk is not the only friend that wants to go riding with me, but she is the only person I will be riding with until i'm 100% confidant again.
