    Yeah he totally is :) and spoiled (but not spoiled rotten) there are a lot of nice looking horse/rider pairs on this thread and wanted to tell that to everyone they look Great!! So happy that even though I might feel alone being a curvaceous (my spelling sucks) rider in my area at least I know I'm not the only one on the planet!! And omg yes I love the carhartts. Super warm jacket. And clothing in general ...someone told me they made them in pink! I would totally get one lol

    ive been trying to come to terms with my plus size for awhile now, and honestly the day I found this forum, I was feeling all sorts of down about my size, having just asked yahoo answers for advice on how to not look like a big puff ball on my horse, so I can record for youtube... and most of them just called me a fat lazy thoughtless person for being my size and riding.... they called me careless.. and that really upset me, and I was feeling bad for my horse because of it.. I was talking about it before on this thread that I had recorded a couple vids of me actually riding and I deleted them because of those hurtfull comments

    You can get pink Carhartt's at TSC - I've seriously considered getting a new Carhartt coat...but my butt is too big and I can't get the largest size Carhartt makes to zip...:(

    On a happier note, Gem - why don't you post your videos of you on your horse here? I'd LOVE to see them!

    People can be so ignorant. I hate the biased-ness of people who like to hurt peoples feelings. And I will second that I would love to see your videos! Maybe we should have a video thread!! I think it would be awesome! As far as those mean people... don't let anyone let you feel inferior without your concent. People have messed with my self esteem a lot. Also. And they only mess with your feelings because they are unsure of their own. I hope you don't let those (another word for donkey + holes) get you down.... I am totally looking forward to seeing pics and or a video!! Plus if anyone on here would like to friend me on FaceBook... message me... I always need some extra horsey friends!

    That's wonderful kait! While I'm not technically plus sized now, I have been and have always struggled with my weight. I think this subforum was a great addition here and glad to hear that it is helping folks.

    Great pics everyone!

    Well heres me putting Gems bareback pad on


    And even more embarrassing is the vid of me riding him... I wont be posting this to youtube since soo many ppl have mean things to say

    me on gem video by lil_riding_chick21 - Photobucket

    Please don't mind the quality of the photo bucket one, it seems that youtube keeps the quality looking better...

    Also just a lil side fact.. Gem was diagnosed with Cushings disease earlier this month, I was flabbergasted, but the vet said that he doesnt look like he's in any sorta danger atm... so no need for any type of treatment, as his feet and heath look good so far.. just gotta watch his weight, even tho he's still a lil on the chubby side, but we are working that off together

    @ TRG - I think you look GREAT on Gem! Wow! <3 his green color scheme, too :) And I think you have a good idea w/ putting the phone/camera on the fence! I don't have any video of me riding Levi :-/
    @ Kait18 - Thank you for the kind words! Tell your sister its mind over matter. If she doesn't mind, it doesn't matter!
