I love this forum!!
I have not seen a plus size rider and I was shocked to find this forum!! I love this!! I read so many stories about other plus size riders that I no longer feel alone about being plus size in the equine world!!!
Im 5'2-5'3 (haven't measured in along time :P) and am 250.
Ive ridden horses all my life, but consistently for the past 6 or so years. Ive been told Im to big to ride but that has never detoured me from doing something I adore. Ive learned to do small jumps and barrels, Ive learned the joy of having four-legged animals that dont care about my weight, as long as I love them, they love me!!!

Thanks for reading, just wanted to express my happiness :clap::clap::clap::clap:

Just saw your post here, we could be twins! Except I'm a very bad estimator and when at the ER in Florida I was asked by a nurse how much I weighex I told them "around 160". Boy was I wrong LOL. The doctorz office here actually made me get on scales and turns out I was off in my guess by 20 lbs.
Native Rose, welcome, this a good place to be.
