I've owned three horses-- two mares and one gelding.

I'll admit, the gelding was the sweetest, calmest love bug. Mare 1 was a straight biatch, and Mare 2, Sunny, isn't a B but does have an attitude.

But, I guess that's what I like about them. Always full of surprises!

To each his own, and it's just so great we have a choice to make, isn't it? :) I love the playfulness of geldings and I'd also say they have their own bag full of surprises - no day is the same with my boy, at least. :)

im nowhere near 300.. and I have people here and vets all the time saying if I find a size appropriate horse im fine.. but in real life.. Im some monster who has no right to be on a horse apparently.. and I dont make the weight limit of any barn within 50 miles of me it seems.. and ads on cl, or feed stores have brought me little luck

Don't listen to them and don't give up on riding. The stable near my house doesn't have a weight restriction. I have seen larger people ride often. I, myself am just under 200 pounds and I ride. I have never even heard of a person being too big to ride. Hang in there and you'll find what you are looking for. Put an ad on cl asking for someone that needs barn work in exchange for riding or pay for it if you have the money. I'm sure there is someone out there close to you that would let you ride!!
