I recently got a new pair of stirrups called flex-on for showjumping, and their the kids style, and expensive so I'm trying to stay light to keep using them! I also have free-jump stirrups which are also juniors and for under 60kg so it motivates me to stay under, and at 5'7" my 'natural' weight is around 63kg so it helps! It's kind of a no win situation, I always think the lighter I am the better my horse will jump, but then I'm weaker and have no control jumping so it makes no difference!! I also find it so difficult picking out hooves and the dreaded mucking out! A healthy balance somewhere would really help..
Once again on my road to self destruction 🤦‍♀️

Yea, I want to be lighter because of riding. I hate how my thighs look when I'm riding, and I think I'd look so so much better at a lower weight
