You will be just fine and you might even lose a few pounds.

agreed.. I wish I weighed 175.. I used to weigh over 300 pounds.. and all the horses I ever rode did fine with me.. and the riding helped me lose a lot of weight, as did the chores of taking care of them.. so don't worry about it.. most full grown horses wouldnt even blink
