Western, if you lower the stirrups a few notches you'll fit better in that saddle. Look for your knee to point in a line to the farthest away part of the arc of the knee pad. Like the hands on a clock pointing to about 7 pm?

You guys all look brilliant and you're horses are clearly well loved! This is me riding a friend's TB gelding. I am 260lbs atm and in this photo I'm trying to loose weight before I get on my girl again even though she doesn't have a problem carrying me.


This is me and my girl about two years ago.


Keep the pics coming :-D Love them!

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

I like the pic of Wes too. He and his horse look so serene.

I am so happy to have found this site and this forum!! I am certainly qualified to be here! And I am so grateful for all the positive support you all give each other...

I look forward to getting back into riding after a 7 year hiatus next week with my first lesson with a new trainer... I was nervous to start looking around for lessons as I feared many places would have the typical weight limit of 200lbs...I am 225lbs... And looking for a horse to part lease has been a nightmare... I am up front about my weight and only look for 1200lb+ horses who are more likely to be comfortable carrying me... Well that doesn't mean the owners will be comfortable with me on them...

I am an experienced rider, just rusty... My little 14.3 1,000lb Anglo-Arab carried my riding fit weight of 180-200lb just fine for 16 yrs before retirement 7yrs ago... In my grief from losing her 2 1/2 yrs ago I faded from the horse scene... now I am ready to get back in a saddle and not only am I the normal nervous of a 43 yr old returning to riding but I am conscious of my weight gain... This forum has already inspired me and infused me with some confidence that I CAN do this. I CAN enjoy riding again... Thankyou from the bottom of my heart!!
