Okay, I personally think I'm a bit on the fluffy side (5'7" and probably around 175lbs right now)...especially since I carry all my weight around the middle.

I think the lovely stark white (satin, no less) BGPs just accentuate my unfortunate middle:


I think Aires is fine carrying me, though, even though he's two. Hauled my butt around for a good 15 minutes today (at walk), plus was lunged twice (10 minutes each time, just to make sure he was listening) and got quite a scare when he got kicked in the face by a mare while we were riding back to the barn...and didn't even break anything close to a sweat. I can't wait to get him moving more (trotting and such). He has the most forward walk of any horse I've ever ridden and he has such L-O-N-G strides. I've ridden TROTS slower than his walk! Can't wait until he gets bigger (taller and filled out more) and takes up more of the six miles of leg I've been cursed with. Lol

Everybody loves him! Lol Well, everyone except that mare that kicked him today.

And that halter is the only thing we could find to fit his massive noggin! I'm cursed with long legs and he's cursed with a Frankenstein head.

Thanks!

I think my farrier put it best today. I led Aires up to him to have his hooves trimmed and he looks Aires straight in the face and says "If you weren't so cute, you'd be ugly!" Mind you, this is a big, tobacco-chewing, brawny cowboy saying this! My friend and I nearly DIED laughing!

All beautiful horses as well as riders :) I won't post a picture because I'm 5'9" and 150 pounds, I want to loose a bit because of my soda belly lol! But I just thought I'd say, the most important thing when picking a horse to carry a rider on the heavier side, isn't their height or weight, byt the length of their back. A shorter back is the best for fluffy loads :) I rode my mare for a solid two hours just to get her to break a dang sweat, and maaaan dies my butt hurt! It hurts to sit on a soft couch, ouch!
