Weight Loss and Gaining Confidence!!

Hey all!! Its been awhile since I've been on here!! I hope everyone is doing good! My life has been extremely up and down, but horse wise everything is finally starting to fall into place! I moved Amber to yet another new farm, the last one did not work out, it was awful. But this place is AMAZING! So friendly, and they've been incredibly wonderful and helpful! Amber and I are getting back on track, and my confidence has been increasing steadily! We're now back to cantering fences (up to 2'3 so far) and are gearing up for a show in 2 weeks (will be our first show in over 2 years!!)

I am also happy to report that over the last year and a half or so I have lost around 60lbs. I went from a size 26 in jeans to almost an 18 (I can get them zipped if I don't breathe, lol) And I can definitely feel the difference in my riding!!

I'm definitely going to try and be on here more!!

Here are some pictures of me and the mare from the last 2 weeks, and a couple of crappy videos!!

I'm not sure whether I'm happier for you for losing the weight, or for doing so well with Amber!

You're both looking wonderful :)
