Are you saying I am fat? LMBO...ok just kidding. I have known this but time has not agreed with me lately. I sure wish I weighed what I was even at 40. It all kind of went south on me. Harder to do than talk about it, losing weight that is. I have a very light weight saddle, and my hubby takes all the saddlebags on his horse, but he out weighs me. lol. BUT i have worried about this with my older horse. Thanks for posting this. Good information.
