Isn't it amazing when you find a 'nitch' and it helps you in several different aspects in your life?

Haylee you are truly beautiful, never let yourself believe otherwise, if your mirror doesn't tell you that, **** it girl get another one. Or just look at yourself reflected in your mans eyes, because he sees what the rest of us see, beauty.

I've posted in the pictures section before, because I am not here for compliments and praise, I'm here for the love of horses. So here I am:

Heres a few pics of moi and my TB:) I'm plus size for my age (uk 16/18) and do get some nasty comments about being overweight and riding a light horse, even though my pony club instructor (who is an ex-flapper) says he can carry me no problem! Oh well, haters gunna hate!

Please excuse my awful position! He jumped from a stand still

Gal, I actually don't see you being a plus rider.

Haylee, the first pic is beautiful!

I have a feeling (over years) that many people over-think themself being on heavy side (interesting enough it's especially a case with European countries). And I think part of the reason is because all those "standards" and models are skinny as a board. Heck, I called myself "fat" (excuse me, folks) for while since I was 10 yo or so (I never was on boney and ribs side). These days I look at those thin models with bones visible even through the dress and ask myself where exactly is the beauty of it?

Here I am on Casper. He's a very small horse and I'm a chubster, but he doesn't have any problems hauling my fat butt around, even at a canter.
