Had my first ride in 3 months last night, short and sweet and my horse was perfect and calm. The 40 pounds lost sure helped AND all my riding gear fitting so much better. Love my mare and love my RNY!

Congrats on getting back in the saddle! It's amazing the difference 40lbs can make! It's been 6 years since the last time I rode, so I'm looking forward to the day when I can get back on without fear of breaking my poor boy's back, haha ;) Glad you had a good ride and that your gear fits well now too! :)

That's great!! My parents have 2 Appaloosas and I refused to ride them because of how heavy was/am ... I felt bad for the poor things! One of my goals is to ride once I reach goal (of course I could do it sooner ..... we'll see)

Congratulations - how exciting!!

I can hardly wait until I can ride my mare. She is a bit overweight herself, so we will be both be getting back into shape.

Have fun
