    Well one of the main reasons why i need to get my weight down is because of my horse, Indiana.

    Indi has been there for me for years and has seen me through the death of my father plus the depression that followed. Without him i know i wouldnt be here now.

    Indi is a 15 year old ex race horse, he is my entire world.

    I need to loose the weight as although Indi can carry me fine i know that my riding would improve as well as helping Indi when he gets older.

    Anyway i will shut up now and show you my amazing horse..........

    Ah he`s gorgeous. Unconditional love eh.
    I used to ride my friends horse 15.2 heavyweight up until we moved in December. He carried me effortlessly when I was 14.5 stone but we both enjoyed our rides more and the pace picked up when I got in the 10`s lol
    I`m really missing him,
    Good luck with the weight loss

    Beautiful. I love that mouth it's all kissable :D

    My horse is my reason for keeping the weight off and the way I have of keeping fit. I walk/cycle 70 miles a week just to get to the farm and back, add to that the mucking out, humping bales of hay/straw/water. Hiking up the hill (her field has to be on a hill :rolleyes:) to fetch her in, of course she assists me in my fitness campaign by waiting as far away from the gate as possible :p. All that plus the riding...
    I have to keep the weight off. I have just bought a new very expensive saddle. I can't afford another if my bum outgrows it :eek:
    I love my girlie.

    I don't think you can have too many horses:D Indi and Poppy are beautiful. They are a great way to get your exercise requirement too, with mucking out, poo picking, lugging buckets of water, bales of shavings and hay! Long reining is good too:D
