I have been thinking lately.......I do not want anyone to take this offensivley, but some people need to start thinking about their health and fitness. By that i do not mean abs of steel or anything, i mean becoming a better rider, and helping your horse. If you are overweight, you could be causing a lot of discomfort to your horse. And it really is not hard to be heathy and fit, you just have to devote some time to yourself everyday. I workout for an hour everyday and i am 13. If you work your muscle groups such as... core muscle, leg strength, ab strentgh....well a lot of muscle gruops. You can improve your riding a lot! Just remember being fit and healthy does not mean you want to be 'skinny' or lose weight, its a lifestyle. Anyway...dont you want to be as strong and powerful as the horse beneath you? Dont you want to live longer?
Just consider the way you are living your life
