Here I am with my Missouri Fox Trotter (gray) and my BLM Mustang (chestnut).

The Mustang is only 14.3 but BUILT. I think he has a little draft in him. Great bones and feet in a small package.

The Fox Trotter is average size. 15.1 and 1100 lbs or so. Nice and broad in the chest.

Both seem to carry me fine (5'6", 200 lbs).

Farmpony - are you sure you don't have me confused with someone else? I haven't been called cute before...well, not since I was a skinny kid!

Thanks! That was a really good day - even Dance seemed to enjoy it. She was in a strange place around a bunch of new horses. We figured we'd have a little trouble with her (hence the lunge line), but she was an angel. Trainer said there wasn't anything she could do for Dancer that I couldn't do - she is just rusty. She's apparently had some seriously good training in the distant past (according to the trainer).

I'm really happy with my girl - happier than I thought I'd be - considering she pitched a bucking fit the first time I saw her, and thew her previous owner hindside over foremost. Sadly, that was actually AFTER I bought her, so I really wondered what I was getting myself into!

Psst, rider... Looking at your pics I don't think you even qualify to be in this section! Nice horses, BTW!

You know, folks, personally I never even notice the size of the rider. I only notice how well the person rides and how good of team he/she is with the horse. Everything else doesn't really matter.

Somewhat OT, but... I remember taking ballroom dancing class while back, and part of it was going out for fun for "Fri dancing". The best dancer in group was that guy, who was way more "plus size" than everyone posted pics in this thread. He was the best dancer I ever danced with. No kidding. You can bet he never had an issue finding a dancing partner as beautiful or experienced as he wanted to.

Trailhorserider, we need to go riding together sometime & swap horses....Your tie dye & chinks would go perfect with a working horse named Woodstock

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.

Here's me on my 14.1 foxtrotter mare. She's a tiny little wisp of a thing. Probably weighs about 700 lbs but she carries me just fine. We ride at least 3 times a week. The little girl in front of me is my 6 year old daughter on her foxtrotter. This was taken last month at our Labor Day parade. We had a blast even though my little mare wasn't sure about all the people and noise...
