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).
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.
