Does My Butt Look Big In The Saddle
WELCOME, we are glad you found our site.
This is a site for overweight equestriennes, equestrian or equestrians who want to lose weight and get back on that horse. Remember when you were thinner and could swing up unto that bareback horse? Remember when all the cowboys/cowgirls looked your way while you were out on your horse? Do you have KOOOOOL riding clothes that no longer fit you? Wanna get "it" back? This site is to encourage us not only to loose weight and watch calories but to get out there and ride/train and do horse chores rather then staying indoors eating.
Any and all discipline welcome. Show horses, trail riders, dressage, jumpers, vaulting, hunt seat and hunters, team penners, ropers, barrel racers, Rodeo Lovers and participators, packers or those that pack, those that are farriers, shoers, trimmers, trainers or do training.

OUR BUTTS CAN BE TOO BIG FOR BICYCLE SADDLES TOO!
I added Bicycle Information and Ideas for loosing weight to this site too. I have been out riding and enjoying bicycles again. I have found not only am I loosing weight, I am so much for fit with better balance. I had forgotten how much I LOVE riding a bike!
I HAVE SEEN BICYCLES THAT WILL HOLD PEOPLE UP TO AND OVER 600 POUNDS. YES. IF YOU ARE OVERWEIGHT, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO FIND A BICYCLE YOU CAN RIDE!
On our Bicycle Blog page there are ideas and information on how to make Bicycle Panniers, convert a Child's Trailer, that is pulled behind a bicycle, to a Camping Equipment Trailer, as well as other types of Bicycle Bags and more, much much more. I hope you will take a peek at the page.
Please enjoy the Blog and other Bicycle Pages I have been adding here on this site.
DON'T OVER PACK YOUR EQUINE
If you have been wanting to ride a horse, or start riding again, but are have become too large to do so, or to ride as well as you used to this is your site!
Some folks will tell you it is ok to ride a horse while you are fat/obese. Oh come on, let's be honest?????? You don't even want to carry that extra weight yourself! Why would you ask your horse to???? How much weight can a horse carry? Well, it depends on the horse, what the weight is, and why you want the equine to carry so much. An overweight rider does not have the balance that they once did before putting on all the weight. So the horse is carrying more of "dead weight".
If you are going to ride heavy, ride a larger, stouter horse, not a fat horse, a well built horse.
Where Might You Find Tack for your Horse that is Large Enough for the Bigger Rider?
It used to be that finding a large saddle seat, that is for the larger rider to sit correct in, was very hard to find and very expensive. These days a person can find large seated saddles....but, what type are comfortable for the Equine we are riding? Is the saddle tree made well enough for the larger rider? You might find some of these questions answered on our Product Review page on this site and also at our www.HorseProductReview.com website.
HORSE AGILITY IS FUN AND GREAT EXERCISE!
Working with horses from the ground is nothing new. Agility for all types of animals is "old news", (see our sister sites to the right for photos and videos of our dogs, goats, guinea pigs, pet rats, hamsters, gerbils, mice, fish and more doing agility).
But the Sport of Horse Agility with Competitions and Clinics is New and Growing Quickly. I have said it about every species of animal and agility.....THE ANIMALS LOVE IT AND THE BOND BETWEEN TRAINER AND ANIMAL WILL TIGHTEN WITH AGILITY WORK.
The other thing is! Horse Agility is a GREAT WORK OUT FOR THE HUMAN TOO!
Have a look at our Equine Agility Pages here at this site.
Row, Row, Row Your Boat!
Get out and have fun! Rowing a Boat is Great Fun and a Great Work Out! Stand Up Paddle, Kayak, Pedal Boats, Small Boats you Row.... HAVE FUN AND BE SAFE! We have pages here on Water Sports here, including, STAND UP PADDLE BOARD/BOARDING!
We will be adding recipe pages, exercise ideas, weight loose tips, live equine as well as Breyer Horse craft ideas, where to buy larger sized riding and tack items, product testing pages, boatingkayaking/stand up paddle/paddling, skating, snowshoeing, skiing, hiking, and more, much more.
The idea is to get out and be active! Live Life. Be Healthy!
