Hi, I'm new to the forums and I'm glad I saw this thread.
I've always been larger. I last rode over 9 years ago and the heaviest I ever was was under 220.

We'll I just rescued a young quarab gelding who I thought was going to be a bit larger and took a picture with him last weekend. He needs lots of love and groceries to fill out and he's going to motivate me to lose weight before I ride him. (He's not even broke yet)

But I never had problems riding my 15.1 mare back before my son was born. Now between 228-235 and 5'4, I'm starting to feel really self conscious especially when I saw this pic. He looks so small, I'm guessing he's only about 14.3 or so.

But I'm glad this support thread is here.

@Bellerose, Welcome to the forums. He looks like an absolute doll! Whats his name? :) Horses are always such a good motivation aren't they and it doesn't hurt that looking after them can be physically demanding as well :P

Thanks so much for the warm welcome!

His name is Tesoro (Treasure in Spanish), he is a doll! We had no idea what to expect since he was basically a rescue/adoption and he is such a sweetheart! Didn't even spook around my crazy 4 yr old daughter!

I don't think I've actually posted here yet.

Me and my gelding, Sammy. Sammy's a 15 hand, extremely short backed (size 70 blanket!) appaloosa.

I call him my demon horse, cause his eyes look pitch black.

Sammy looks like a kind soul. You look good up there.

Bellerose love the pic of the Quarab, your daughter, and you. He does look like a sweety.

Thanks Luvs Horses. He's actually kind of a jerk, but we're working on it.

Hey guys, a good friend had a lot of trouble with weight after a pregnancy but she rode on and has always been an inspiration to me, she's a great horseperson:

She has now nearly returned to her pre-pregnancy weight, and she did it over about three years, gradually, with healthy eating (not dieting, just eating right) and a continued active lifestyle with riding, dog walking, and all that hard physical work associated with horses! Her horses appreciated her no matter what her shape. Best wishes to all.

My OTTB Samson and I enjoying an evening ride the other day. My weight hovers around 230, and I've never once felt like I was too big for him. He carries me fine, over jumps and through trails all the same. :)
