[RC] Endurance horse/rider sizes - Betty Edgar

More than the actual weight is the fit and style of saddle that will be carrying the heavy weight person.  It's important that the saddle fit well and distribute that weight over the largest possible area.  Imagine carrying a 40 lb. backpack with evenly distributed weight covering your back; then consider how it would feel if there were a couple of protruding objects that pushed most of that weight into your back in just those two spots.  Get the picture?
