You get an A for effort, and a A+ cause you have a paint!

I'm a 6'8" man that hovers around 300lbs. I won't post a pictures because I'm so **** computer illiterate that I probably couldn't find one on my own desktop let alone post it to this forum. You ladies all look great. The most attractive thing in a female rider is confidence. If you are confident with yourselves and your horse then go ahead and ride and have a great time. I used to worry about looking too big for my horses but then I realized that the horse could carry me just fine and I didn't care much who was looking anyway.

One tip would be to get high quality tack that fits you well. You and your horse will be much more comfortable if you are sitting in a saddle that is big enough for you.

I'll post.


Me riding my girl Candy; she's short, but she's strong and stout. She's never had a problem carrying me, but I am trying to lose weight so I feel more comfortable with her, (and so she'll feel more comfy with me. )




This is me riding Diesel. I think he and I are both plus sized... He's a little overweight, but he's still strong and he's comfortable carrying me. He was the first horse of my own! Also, he looks short from this angle because my mom was up on the back porch looking down to take this picture. Also I got a saddle that fits me better; this saddle was loaned to us and it fit Diesel really well.



Here's me riding a plastic zebra at the mini-golf course on my friend's birthday! LOL! Poor zebra.

(And yes, I wear my boots everywhere... they're the best shoes I own. )

You all look great, and I see some very lovely horses here as well!

Great pics Requiem! Love the zebra

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Dee, your horse has one of the nicest coats I've seen. Makes me really jealous - mine is just plain sorrel. :)
