    This is why not. Very well said SR. There are merits to the discussion of rider weight and horse suitability and there is no problem with starting a thread & having that discussion. This thread is just not the place for it. As general rule we ask that picture threads not be turned into critique threads, we have sub-forums for both rider and horse critiques for that purpose.

    So let's keep this thread to the original intent and any sidebar conversations can be started as separate topics.

I do have another sort of surgery coming up that is going to kick start me into weight loss mode again I think, seeing as I wont be feeling like eating for a month or two

    I agree a new thread should be started for discussion on the subject, this is a photo thread it was never designed to be a discussion thread, and a new thread would get new inputs.
    Hi Golden Horse. Thank you for the welcome! Yeah, the surgery can be cost prohibitive, depending on what's covered by your insurance, and there is a lot of follow-up that must be done too. I didn't find the surgery itself to be that bad at all, though. Days four and five post surgery were the worst, when I could actually feel the band inside me, but that didn't last long.

    Thanks for the comments about the starting a new thread, and what this one was designed for. That makes total sense now. :)

    Ughh, not liking that thought, I'm just going to have to do the lap band diet, but using my will and wont power, rather than the band...

    Eh, Wisconsin might be a little out of my range, dagnabbit!

    I'm not sure I could get rid of him, even though there's a half-Arab black & white pinto gelding I've been lusting after. He's like herpes; I'm afraid he's with me for life!

    It was definitely the weirdest feeling in the world, haha. But, overall, getting the band has been the absolute best decision of my life. It is not a miracle cure, though, trust me, you still have to work. I still crave cookies and ice cream, and all that. It certainly doesn't take away cravings or the emotional reasons for eating. But, it gives me another tool in my toolkit to accomplish my dreams!

    You mentioned you're having surgery soon that will prohibit eating for a couple months. What kind of surgery is that?

    Really? Wow, her Arab half certainly comes through! She looks more purebred than some of the purebreds I've known!

    Here's a picture of me and my beast, I mean horse, hehe.

    Cadence is a 5 year old Percheron/Thoroughbred cross.

    This picture was taken in September during our Competitive Trail Ride debut.
