    You're not too big at all. Your girl is nice and thick with good bone and feet, her chest is massive (always a good thing for carrying weight) and she doesn't appear to be struggling at all in any of the riding pictures.

    Keep doing what you're doing and good luck with your weight loss .

    Your horse looks like she can carry you nicely, I don't think your too big at all. If you just keep up a good diet and exercise the weight will slowly melt off anyway :)

    One of my boarders (built like a dumpling) decided to start walking/running the back road. I suggested she take her horse along, that she's a great companion to have along and it's good for her too. Having a horse trot alongside seems to give up impetus to keep going. It's especially nice to be able to grab a little mane to help with the inclines.

    I wish I could do this! I have my dog but he likes to take off and run infront of me while on the leash. He gets excited. Even when not on the leash he runs infront of me or tries to body check me. Boxers

Weight loss helps lower blood pressure as well.
    Also quick weight loss is really terrible for your body, and can lead to issues like liver and heart problems. Many nutritionists argue that "crash" and "yo-yo" dieting is more damaging to health than weight to begin with. Which is why the best course of action is to develop good eating and exercise habits and focus on actually being healthy rather than just looking skinnier.

    You guys look good together!

    One thing, it may be the angle of the picture, but in the one with your legs out of the stirrups it appears that your right shoulder is dropped and that leg is also hanging lower. You may well be out of alignment, which could be originating in your feet or elsewhere along that line. I would see a chiropractor and make sure to invest in some good arch supports and shoes with all the walking you're doing. It would suck to be on this path to health and end up injuring yourself in a manner that makes it hard for you to ride or work out. :) Good job on taking steps to be healthier!

    In that picture without the stirrups I could REALLY feel I was sitting crooked. To the point of it being really uncomfortable.
