Hunny - you do not have thunder thighs. THESE are thunder thighs!

I still have fun, as big as I am and as out of shape as both my body and my horse are. We just have to keep our rides short until we are both in better shape.

I think I've recovered sufficiently from a minor accident that I can get back in the saddle, and am really looking forward to it!

You don't have "thunder thighs", you have muscular thighs. Trust me I'm in the same boat. I'll never have tiny/thin thighs, like one of my best friends or the models on tv, but I also have some pretty sexy curves which my boyfriend really appreciates. ;)

It took me quite a few years to learn how to appreciate my body, but now I look in the mirror and I'm happy with what I see. It's not perfect, but it is strong and healthy and it is beautiful. Learn to replace your bad thoughts with good, it really does work. Instead of saying "yuck thunder thighs" say "I have beautiful strong legs that allow me to do XX so well." It works.

Beleive me too, I have a friend with uber thin thighs. She has supermodel legs without even trying, seriously gorgeous legs. She also has no butt to speak of and has always felt unwomanly because of it, so that's the other side of the coin.

No one has a perfect body, we're all different and you need to learn how to appreciate and rock what YOU have instead of beating yourself down.

Jeans are the WORST. your thighs are not big. After working as a ski patroller by mid winter there were no jeans that would fit my thighs. The media tells us we should look like this and that and if we don't, we're fat. I call BS. I hate it when I have to buy clothes. I feel fat and walk away feeling upset cause I couldn't find anything I liked that fits.

They need to start making clothes for REAL women, with ads showing REAL women. We are in all shapes and sizes.

Speaking of media, I remember a while back when some company had a lingerie commercial featuring "real" and plus size models, and it was removed from TV because it "showed too much."
And yet just last night I saw a Victoria's Secret commercial with half-naked "twigs."

What has the world come to........?

I dont see thunder thighs, you are most likely Pear Shaped, I am too and my friend Andrea is drastically pear shaped.
Its pretty much who you are and its great, if you want to try stuff look up exercises for pear shaped people :)

You don't have thunder thighs. If you want killer thighs, be prepared to do some work, and not riding either, you gonna hafta run, jump, kick, sweat & earn it. Anyone can be thin, being ripped is work, and feels fan-freakin'-tastic. Pic of me last month in Cancun, & I am 51 years old. I work out 5 days a week, (riding don't count, sorry), 1 hour, never go to a gym, I train at home.

To the OP,

I don't mean to be a slight downer here because I would kill for your shape!! Haha, but I don't imagine horse riding will help your disliked area. Horse riding will build a good amount of muscle in your thighs, but not a huge lot for the rest of you!
Hehe. But you just look fit and healthy to me!

HOWEVER, not that I think you need it, but were I posed this question by someone I hadn't SEEN who said they were a horse rider and were uncomfortable with the size of their thighs, I would actually recommend maybe doing exercises specifically targeted at other area's of your body? It might help balance it out?

But! Because I have seen you I shall instead say, I wouldn't change a thing! You look great on a horse :)
