    yes I have looked into them.. I don't meet the weight limit for the ones around me.. some are really low.. and either I drive 70-100 miles north or 70-miles south to find more that are open for the idea of me riding there.. and as of trailriding places.. Creampuff said I could come out to her place and come ride.. its still like 80 miles away.. but Im planning on goin gsometime next week weather permitting and such.. so hopefully that is something

    I'm on the same boat. So meny people Keep telling me that I can come ride with them, but I see them out all the time, with out me. I even got screwed over by my neighbor, I house sat for her over christmas for 9 days. I watched her 2 spoiled rotten braty horses (I got kicked by one, just because he felt like it) and her 2 dogs that she doesnt have a fenced in yard for so I had to fallow them for hours till they decided to go. >.<

    I did all that for almost free, becaue she was saposed to take me riding, well that was christmas..... she wont even talk to me know. I see her ride by herself all the time. My mom even house sat for a few days FOR FREE!! So she would take me riding....yeah I learned from that. NO MORE FREE WORK!

    My mom told me she would keep me around horses when I sold Sonador, because she was taking the money (I didn't know this till after I had sold her, or I never would have sold her at all) I haven't been on a horse since and that was in July. I sold her, so I could stat a bank acount to save up the money to buy a car (I'm 19 and don't have any car I'm stuck at home all the time) and I was going to buy another horse eventualy.

    So now I'm broke, fat, and horseless. Lol

    I'm not kiding you when I say I don't have a single penny to my name. My dad said I wasnt alowed to have a job till I finished college. Well I'm not going to college, I'm going to horse training "school" that's going to cost money I don't have. >.< Now that I'm actualy alowed to have a job its imposible to find one.

    I wish you were in my area. I'd give you my gelding to ride and give you lessons too on him if you wanted...I have a plus sized woman right now taking lessons from me in the beginners class, and doing extremely well. You're not bad weight wise anyhow! I've seen horse carry a lot more with zero problems.

    I would honestly look into lessons once every two weeks or so at the barns that are the long drive away.. With gas and lessons it may be harder to save up for another horse but I would try anyways. Once you've had a decent amount of lessons under your belt maybe you'll have put enough away to buy a horse.

    Then you can tell all those people, "See I don't need to ride, but I'm going to."

    What area are you in??? That seems to be more of a southern issue... I"m in Michigan and have never had an issue finding a place to ride... I lived in Canada no issue there either... I"m 5'8" 250 now but at one time was just over 300. I honestly think the barns aren't worried about their horses as much as they are worried about liability... they feel a big person has no balance and will more then likely get hurt. Just an opinion I have... have seen simular post to often to think otherwise. And yet I know lots of plus size riders that ride "normal" horses... 1,200 lbs QH for example and without an issue one.

    im quite far from you.. like 500 miles or so.. by the township name on your profile.. so that's not helpful.. just trying to find something close is like asking for winning lottery numbers
