Hi everyone. I know this is an older thread, but it was one that stood out to me. I am an older rider who is around 220, and my TWH is one of the stout "old school" horses. He seems to carry me just fine, but I don't do alot of faster riding...mostly walking with the occasional four-beat for about 1/2 mile. I have had my horse for about a year + and am trying to lose weight. ( had ovarian cancer surgery,then hernia surgery, then other complications that restricted exercise, etc.) I'm glad to see a thread where I can talk to other plus sized riders.
