I need some help guys!
I horseback ride, and as a result, I have a lot of muscle in my thighs and I really want to get rid of it. So I can feel better in my short jeans. Posted Image (and have skinnier legs Posted Image )

Does anyone know any type of exercises to get rid of the that muscle?
The only thing is, I can't stop horseback riding (I go everyday- just about because I have my own horse)...

any suggestions much appreciated!

I think you should be proud of your strong legs! And i think there's no way of making them thinner other than stop exercising.

Why would you want skinny legs when you can have sexy/shapely legs? Geez...most people I know would kill to have great toned legs!!

But, yeah, what lia said. You'd have to stop doing whatever it is that you are doing to not have that. But, then you'd not be happy because you probably ride as much as you do cuz it's something you love.

Chances are...the guys who see you in those shorts are drooling. Posted Image

I don't think you want to do that...you would really have to let them atrophy away. But if you are naturally mesomorphic, then your body wants your thighs that way. Just think of when you are forty or fifty years old, the muscle there will keep your thighs up where they should be, and young-looking. Not all old, saggy, and deflated.

Thats what I was kind of afraid to hear.... to me, it feels like my thighs are just big and fat... everybody says its muscle... it just looks gross in skinny jeans! Posted Image (short legs, big thighs= bad picture?) maybe wearing heels it would look like my legs are longer?

Then what should I do to burn the rest of the fat off so that my thighs are completely toned? but not enough so that I would get more muscle?

thanks so much guys!

Do exercises that lengthen muscles like swimming or palates.  Muscular legs are nothing to be ashamed off, it beats fat flabby legs any day.  It means you are healthy and strong.  You got to be able to outrun Zombies ;)

I love muscular legs! I can guarantee that there are a bunch of women (and men) out there who are jealous of muscle. But if you think they're too big or bulky and it makes you feel self-conscious, then give pilates a shot. It's great for maintaining strength, but it gives you long, lean toned muscle.

Well.. I have huge calves, and I absolutely HATE wearing anything that can show them!!! I feel so large compared to my friends:( 

BUUUUUT, a good side to that is that I am the second fastest girl on my soccer team... i guess :)

But i still really really want to get smaller thighs and calves.. I tried pilots's exercise thingies for 5 days.. still nothing at all:(

Nothing gives you results in 5 days. Pilates works well to give long muscles but you are looking at months, not days.

i have the same problem i ride barrels in the summer and then off the side i play volleyball basketball swim and run track. in effect i have hugee thighs. one time i went some where and some guy asked me if i was a body builder and then at school i get made fun of my "man legs" it's really embarassing. ive read in a couple of places that you are supposed to over work the muscle by exercising and that should make it smaller. also cut down on the red meats but even then alot of people said it would take time. i hope this could help a little bit! good luck !
