Share 'Horse:Rider weight ratio'
What size horse would we need to carry a rider who weighs 225 lbs? Her saddle probably weighs about 30 lbs. She is an excellent rider who has been away from horses for several years and wants to get back into trail riding. We plan to start her out on several flat land rides that are fairly short (2-3 hours, maximum). I would appreciate any advice anyone can give.
