2015-12-15: Hi! You're probably here because you did a Google search for 'plus sized horseback riders' or you saw my content quoted elsewhere. There are a couple of things I'd like you to know.

I am still here! But I am living away from my horses and not riding often. I could tell you a lie and say that I am, but I have always endeavored to give you the truth here. As a result, I'm not feeling terribly motivated to write blog posts and I feel out of touch with the community.

I'd love for you to stay a while and look back through the archives. Visit the links listed below. We still have an active forum community and I post on the Facebook page from time to time.

I have tentative plans to try to get more involved in the horse world in 2016, and I will absolutely share whatever that adventure becomes with you, so keep checking back!

One of my forum ladies posted a link to this woman's Facebook photos, which showed a couple of shots of a very confident and professional lady that was rocking white breeches and certainly not weighing 98lbs soaking wet. Talk about inspiration! I Google'd her name and found her website. Lady! This is not just a plus sized rider TALKING about riding (like I do!), she is DOING it - and she's DOING IT WELL - AND she is instructing others on how to do it well!

Short gist:
Susan Hoffman Peacock is a National Clinician, USDF 4th Level Certified Instructor/Trainer, USDF Silver Medalist and National Champion. She owns and operates the beautiful Hidden River Ranch in Corona, California.

Nothing to scoff about if you ask me! What an inspiring (and not to mention stunning!) lady!


  1. Does she have a Facebook account? I'd LOVE to add her. I just got done reading over her site and she's got the loveliest horses and I like her training philosophies.

  2. Durr...never mind, I found her on FB and added her.

  3. I am very flattered to receive such praise for my riding ability. Thank you! I really think that it would have been nice to have been asked permission to post about me. All riders are self conscious about their bodies; big or small. I am hopeful that I am an inspiration to ALL riders to take the body that they were given to the hieght of their own ability. I am still a work in progress. I am trying to empower all riders by example. Sometimes that is hard for all of us!

  4. FYI my farm name changed to Eastvale Equestrian to celebrate the new city-hood of Eastvale,CA; formerly Corona, CA
