This is Thin Privilege

Scroll to Info & Navigation

Thin privilege is being able to go horseriding.

My university is offering horseriding as an extracurricular this semester and I wanted to participate, but they only allow people under 210 lbs because “their horses can’t carry more weight.” I’m sure there are horses around that could carry much more than that. Thin privilege is constantly being badgered to exercise, but at the same time being barred from exercising.

Mod response: I know we’ve talked about this before, but yes, absolutely, there are horses that can carry fat people. I’m sorry your university won’t let you ride.
