    I don't have a recent picture of me riding. Heck, I don't have many of me riding period, I need to work on that!

    Everyone on this thread is amazing and beautiful! I wish society didn't push us into thinking that we are "wrong" because of our weight. I am not the biggest of girls, but I'm not the smallest. I constantly feel that I don't belong or am unworthy because of my weight. Then I beat myself up for feeling that way. Vicious cycle.

    This pic was of me shortly after I was married and about 6 years and 20 pounds ago. Now I wish I was back there, but even then, I felt like I was huge.

    I still don't know if I'm plus sized or not x.x But this should make everyone feel better about themselves! This jump was just a mess altogether xD

    Hold the phone! You aren't one of those skinny kids that goes oooooh! I'm sooooo fat!!! Are you?

    Horse = 15h. Me = 270lbs. Kiss my horse's bum skinny riders of America. Oh wait, you'd probably enjoy that.

    Ooooo, I really like the dapples n your palomino!

    To look at me even 20# heavier, most people don't think I am as heavy as I am. My BMI, puts me into the obese category.

    At any rate, this is Dancer and I on 06/25/11 riding the trails at Prague Lake:

    Someone please tell me I'm not too big for her! My friends (and my daughter) tell me I'm not too big, but still...
    You both look great

    I think women are criticized more for their size in relation to their horses than men. I think it is so unfair. I am not plus sized but read this thread because of the positive I see here. I can empathize in the criticism about weight by people in general but it is the opposite for me. I had a major surgery on my bowel yrs ago and now have issues staying at a healthy weight. Recently someone told me I looked like someone on drugs because my collar bones stick out. People are just rude and inconsiderate.

    :) A few photos of my mare, Jett and I. (She is the biggest honey badger horse that ever existed. She doesn't care about anything. Lol )

    I'm 6'0" and 280 with more take than give.
    She's 15HH.

    (And I make it a habit to ride bareback at least an hour a week. It has helped my seat and core muscles immensely!!)
