Hi, I've never done horse riding before and it looks like it could be fun.
I do not want to wear those silly tights, hats and jackets that the English horse riding people wear. I don't wan't to do dressage either- it looks stupid and I don't see the point of making an animal dance. I've thought of doing western riding since my fourth birthday when I dressed up as a cowboy, then going the USA when I was six on a tour of "cowboy country". I never found out more about horse riding till recently when I saw a cowboy documentary and remembered again...Thought I may as well give it a go...
Anyway, where can I do western riding near Epping Forest, or London, or Essex?
I'm 17 and have never ridden before. I also don't have loads of money.
Any help much appreciated thanks.
Is it odd for a 17 year old boy to be interested in starting horse riding? People have said that horse riding is for little girls and Bronies (and I don't like my little pony/ not a Brony and am not a little girl). There doesn't seem to be any basis for this stereotype. I mean apparently a hundred years ago, horse riding was not generally considered to be for women so what's happened? Any Ideas?
