Awesome! I'm glad you had a good time; I went horseback riding a lot when I was younger, and it was a wonderful experience, especially since I'm such an animal lover...

I've ridden a horse once, but back when I was thinner. It was on a farm and we went on a trail that cut a path kind of through the woods. It was an exciting experience. I really enjoyed it. I'd love try to ride again some day.

Good for you!! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I always think of that as something I wouldn't be able to do. Now I'll have to see if there are any opportunities around here.

Exclamation the max cabin capacity of a horse!

it feels great to not only share my 1st lesson with you all, but to get such positive feedback! thank you so much!

as you can see, fatties can go horseback riding too!!!

for those interested, you must know that a rider may only weigh up to 20% of the total weight of the horse.

i.e. 200 lb rider = 1,000+ lb horse
250 lb rider = 1,250+ lb horse
300lb rider = 1,500+ lb horse
350 lb rider = 1,750+ lb horse
400 lb rider = 2,000+ lb horse

big rider = big horse!

This is such a relief! I have always wanted to go horseback riding, but as a fat girl, had my doubts. Not only about the poor horse, but also afraid I'd have trouble even getting on the horse.

Now that first fear has been put to rest. I just need to find a horse that weighs more than 1500 pounds.

How fantastic!!!!!!!!!!! I used to ride and take lessons all the time. That's one of the biggest things I miss doing because of my weight.

Thanks for the weight ratio info!

Aris that's fucking awesome. I can't believe you got on a horse!!!! I didn't know there was a rule about the size of the horse. How did you get onto it tho? Did they give you a step ladder? The stable that used to be on the upper west side is gone. Did you have to leave the city to do it?

I took lessons for a few years back when I was 10ish. Then I had my own horse soon after that. I haven't ridden in years, but not too long ago my friend let me get on her horse for a ride around the ring... it was amazing! I miss riding so much!!

This really made me happy to read.

When I was a kid and in my teens my dad had a horse and I got to ride it now and then and loved it. I assumed that being able to ride a horse was one of the things I could no longer do because of my size. I am totally going to check into riding schools in my area to see if any of them have big horses for big people. I seem to remember an ex boyfriend's SSBHM dad and his average sized mom going on a riding day together with some kind of group, and that the horse he wound up with was so much bigger than the other horses. But that was over 10 years ago and I have no idea what the who and where of it was.

Thank you, Aris. This is great information and will hopefully inspire more people to try riding. Horseback riding is great fun, and also fantastic passive exercise. An average horse weighs about 1100 pounds and will be able to carry most riders with little difficulty. For those of us over 300 pounds, a draft horse is in order (they run 1400 to 2000 pounds), but it isn't easy to find one that is trained to carry a rider.

I grew up on horses, and my big naughty pony never seemed to mind carrying me anywhere, but back then neither of us knew there was a weight limit. I think I last rode twenty years ago, when I was about 300 pounds... I just happened upon a stable where they had a beast no one wanted to ride. He was half draft horse, stocky with a huge head (about half trained and possibly not terribly bright) and was perfect for me. Riding him was like straddling a minivan for a few hours.

Now, a half Clydesdale won't do the trick. I need an upgrade to a full-size draft horse. Maybe this thread will help locate that elusive stable with saddle-broke draft horses!

Aris, how long/far did you ride and did your arse ache later on?

I think that is SO awesome!! I have been wanting to do that for years but have feared I would be too heavy. actually, I have looked into it a few times but there were weight restrictions, like 225 or 250. Maybe I need to look in other places

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy for you!!!
