I dont ride horses but heres what I think.
If I were over weight, and thought I could still be the riding champion of the world, I would buy a horse, pay the people who own the track to let me ride in a race, and if I won I would get recognition right... If I lost I guess I would tell myself that I am really not as good as the skinny little jockeys right...
Maybe I would fool myself and blame a bad horseshoe, or maybe the horse that I rode was just too old, maybe I would blame the wind, or the climate, and say things like... My horse was trained in Kentucky but here in Florida its too hot for him.
But would say...Gee I am fatter than everyone else, and thats why I was slower than everyone else.
Imagine if I was offered a job pulling carriages through Central Park and turned it down because its not what I do.
I dont want this to sound down at all.

If your petite, or in some way less than desireable in the field of modeling (for whatever reason) make an investment with your own time and money. Call a great photographer and a great makeup artist, and a stylist you work well with.. Get in front of the camera and shoot.
