I sure am. Even with that 8 year old mare, I wasn't actually planning to hop on her until next spring or summer. I want to spend a lot of time developing a solid level of trust with my horse, just playing with her and letting her figure out in her own time that I'm not a scary monster. I don't have any deadlines when it comes to riding. If I spend the next 2 or 3 years grooming her, taking her for walks around the farm and teaching her ground manners, that's fine by me.
