Am I consider a heavy rider...need to know for tack
I was wondering if I was consider a heavy rider. I'm 5'6 and 160-167 lbs...it varies from that range.
I need to know what pad I need for my treeless saddle
Cheyenne Physio Pad : Barefoot saddles, for riders who care
^this is for the heavy rider. I don't think I'm that heavy but I'm not light either.
Not in my opinion. I would think heavy starts at about 190.
I think they consider the 'light' riders to be more like 140 or under... I was sort of on that border line...
okay,so I'm considered a medium size?
I remember when I was a freshie in highschool and weighed that much..I was sooo skinny!
this is me now on myhorse all bundled out..my legs went numb and I couldn't get back on my horse late on in the ride without help of a ledge :P
DON'T WE LOOK CUTE!?
I know..she's soo thrilled.
To be honest, Gidget, I don't think it's in category "heavy" at all! I'm probably about the same weight.
According to a BMI calculator you are overweight.
Exactly... you aren't a "heavy" rider... but you aren't particularly "light" either.
OP - i don't think you're a heavy rider. like someone else said, i believe they refer to heavy as 190-200+ (with regards to the pads you're looking at).
People who are truly fit and over muscled realize this and know it.
I highly doubt the average person, even with good muscle, shows up as over weight or obese on the BMI if they do not have a few LBs to lose.
Obviously weight builders are different. You do not look like a weight builder from your photos.
