If that big hunk of a black beast is missing, there is absolutly no point looking for him in NZ ;)

It makes me smile that there's confidence in plus sized riders... I know I've been sheepish about riding because of my weight. But that hasn't stopped me!!

The first one is me on my friends big-ole TB going out for a trail ride... Riding Murray with barrel reins was a challenge. Lol I had to have my hand stretch half way up his neck to give him enough rein!

The second one is Cash - an 18hh QH who is a pleasure machine! This was the first time I showed him (western pleasure) and he was a stinker in the first class (has a history of rushing 2nd direction) but second class was a rockstar. Btw - that is a LOPE! Holy guacamole can you say relaxed and flat kneed. I was so proud of the big boy!

And then the short black one... He's special. He was donated to the school as a coming 3yo and had been rushed into training and was a nut-job. Bolting, bucking, the works. Went out on pasture for the summer to be a horse for the first time in his life - then he became my project. Did about 5 months of just relaxed riding and then just turned into the best little boy. He's a western pleasure machine and LOVES his job. His current job now that I've graduated is to take care of beginners and show them the ropes. I'm a proud mama. :)

Last but not least... My personal boy - Jag. This was a few years ago (we don't get a lot of pictures together) but we prett much look the same!

Tell that to my doctor! He informed me I am obese! I've been slowly losing weight but 6 months ago I was tipping the 200lbs mark on the scale.

I have to buy extra wide field boots and have a heck of a time finding crash vests that fit never mind breeches *sigh*

I am bigger then the pics make me out to be

I'm scared to post this one lol its dark but yea this was 6 months ago



This was end of June... uhh my field boots were too big in the calf in this pic lol but the battle to lose weight started to show.



I may have started wearing one of those tummy control things under my breeches/shirts when riding after seeing the first pic

Sadly i've put weight back on in the last month *sigh*
