    None of my family even extended family ride horses. It took me till I was 14/15 for my parents to let take riding lessons. :)

    First one in Australia anyway, I have relatives over in Germany who ride, although I have never met them and when I got the bug I never even knew about them.
    Haha so pretty much first person in my family, one of my cousins did try it for a while but stopped after a month I think.

    First one! :) my mom likes to watch and took a few riding lessons but doesnt like going any faster then a jog. She just likes to chill, not progress or train etc. she's in love with my horse tho. Keeps talking about what she's going to buy for her "grandson" next lol... I hope its not more treats! I swear she's trying to make him fat on me lol

    I'm the first one too, even out of 6 pairs of aunt/uncles and 16 cousins. :) One cousin did just start to do mounted shooting, and I hear he's gotten pretty good at it actually. I'm really the only horse person though since I definitely have the 'bug' and don't just love them casually.

    Really though, where does the horse gene come from?? It strikes at will I guess. :P

    It must be! Some people come from horse-families and don't ride and some people just randomly get the "horse gene" from no where. XD

    I'm the only one in my family who has an interest in horses and riding. I always loved horses and wanted to ride, but my parents didn't really see why. So I never really had the chance. But when I met my boyfriend and I discovered that he also loved horses... well... he just had to be mine
    I bought my first horse 35 years old and started getting lessons. And I still loooove horses!

    I am the one and only. Sometimes it does kind of suck. However I have a lot of support from my family and friends. I like that its my own thing.
