I'm kind of middle weight

But I know what you are feeling. My trainer never came out and said it, but I am pretty sure that all of her 100 pounds thought I was too heavy for my sturdy Rocky. I know about the 20% "rule" but I can't find any research to validate it. Yep, and if I were a man, no-one would have a problem with my weight on my horse. We woman are our own worse enemies. Its as if we get biased against each other, because we think we will be freed of those same biases against ourselves.
