Like most 12 year old girls, I was horse crazy and dreamt of having my own horse to love and ride. Over the years we sometimes rented horses for trail rides, and occasionally had a friend with horses, but I never had my own. Then with my weight growing past 250 lbs. (on my way to 300), I didn’t even want to ride, nor did I think I even could. Since losing almost half my body weight through this wonderful MGB surgery, I have felt the stirrings of desire to ride again.
