Just a few questions about riding lessons:
1) How old were you when you started?
Six the first time round, then I quit aged 13 due to bullying.
The second time round, I was 23 - I really do consider it starting from scratch again; I couldn't even steer the horse, and I got a massive lecture at the end of my first lesson about how it's so dangerous to lie about how long you've been riding!
2) How long have you been riding?
hmm... tough one. Altogther, about 15 years, but that's all broken up over 29 years. The longest continuous run has been 8 years, but I don't remember much of that.
3) How long before your first show?
My first show, was after about four years of riding. I did Equitation and Show Jumping at a local show. It was only a week after my parents started leasing my first pony though.
Second time round, about a year and again, I was thrown in the deep end after a very short time with the horse. It ended with me being asked to leave the arena because my horse was a danger to the other competitors!!.
4) How long before you started leasing/owning?
Again, four years the first time round (I was only 10) and about nine months the second time. Both times, I was very glad I took the horse on loan, but I regret quitting lessons.

1) How old were you when you started? - About 7 or 8 years old if you don't count pony rides at the fair ;)
2) How long have you been riding? About 16 years now I guess... man that makes me feel old lol
3) How long before your first show? I did a couple small local shows here and there after riding for about 5 years. I didn't show regularly until I got to college.
4) How long before you started leasing/owning? I finally convinced my parents that it wasn't "just a phase" and they got me a horse when I was about 12 so... 4-ish years after I started riding. But we had some back luck with the horse owning so 2 years later I was once again horseless. I just got my first "grown up" horse last fall.
