evergreen I think you have a right to your opinion and it's not wrong. It's hard to tell just from pictures if a person is to big or the horse to small, it just depends on how the picture was taken. I love the pictures posted. I know I look to big for Toby but she in real life is not as small or delicate as she looks in pictures just as pictures have a tendency to add weight to people. In our area the average man that rides weighs 200 to 250 lbs. but nobody even blinks an eye at their weight it's accepted for them but not women. Now as for right size for horse, at a barn we were before we came to where we are now, there were children 4 years old ridding horses that were at least 16 hands high and welrounded in classes of at least 12 kids, and I saw a grown woman who weighed at least 145 trying to ride a miniature horse. But for the most part ridding is good for everyone of every size there is a horse out there for them. Now lets get back to sharing our wonderful pictures of wonderful people ridding them.
