Lovely pictures ladies! As always! :)

But I do have to question a few people thinking they should be in this thread!
I still haven't quite worked up the courage to post a photo of ME riding yet.
Saddles are very unforgiving to my thigh width, hehehehe.

You are all an inspiration!

Country Women....Lamar looks like my Snickers:) How tall is he? I keep reading that a shorter, stockier horse can carry more weight than a taller horse so I should maybe stop wishing Snickers would get taller. Lamar is gorgeous though. It will be interesting after Snickers sheds to see if she will actually be black and white again like Lamar is. I only bought her a couple of months ago so I haven't seen her summer coat.

You look great on him Country Woman! Beautiful scenery too! What kind of horse is he? Snickers is a spotted draft/paint cross if you can believe it at 14hh! Her mother was a buckskin paint at 15.2hh and dad was 17hh black and white spotted draft. I've sat on her and rode her at a walk in the roundpen and she was an angel. This summer I will ride her more once she is a little older.

Me to, but then some people have a very negative self image and think they belong here.

I figure I've solved the big thigh issue, I'm going to wear black breeches, and black tack on my big black horse, you won't be able to see the joins that way

this was taken in Maple Ridge BC where my husband and I used to live
I not sure what kind of horse Lamar is. Carol who owned him said he needs a firm hand cause he is a little stubborn
I handled him perfectly. You would have known I had not ridden for 6 years before that
