Unhappy Too big for my mare?

Just wondering people's thoughts as to if I'm too big for my mare? I am a big girl and know it. On a brighter note I have a good seat, lol. Some of the pictures are terrible. Also the one with my feet out of the stirrups the judge asked us of that. Sorry to post so many pictures.

You're a big girl but so is your horse. You look just fine. It's really nice to see a larger rider with a suitable horse!! As long as she is sound and happy and you are happy it's all good. Being balanced is soo important too.

Your mare looks like she is happy and eager to go. I am someone who nitpicks about weight ratio and such but no issue here :) Just continue to take good care of her and you're good to go! You two look lovely together.

Would you try to change your size if someone said you are too big?

I'm already working on the weight. I wish I started a long time ago. Since I started eating healthy and walking on my treadmill every day I've become so much happier and I'm feeling great. I've only been doing it for two months but I have my routine and love it. I don't expect to lose weight over night.......after all I didn't get fat over night ;)

Keep it up!!! I just finished a diet called "the 17 day diet" I hated it but I lost 30ish pounds over the 51 days. I will be doing it again after summer I hope I can lose another 30 pounds.

As for you and your horse, I think you are fine your mare.

Good for you!

CowboyBob what's your diet? I don't pretend I'm a "plus" rider and stumbled upon this thread by accident, but could definitely use a diet lol.

The problem with quick weight diets is when one stops the diet, the pounds go back on along with another 5 or 10. The greatest benefits of losing weight is reducing the chance of developing early diabetes and risking amputation of toes or the foot and blindness. Are you ready for that? Weight loss helps lower blood pressure as well.

Before I saw the pictures I had a certain image I was expecting, but I think you look great. The two of you make a really nice looking combo and balance out each other well.

My very best to you !
