    I hope the riders in "Joe Boxer" had all the kids they ever want to have! Not likely they will ever have more...particularly the 'one out of five' guy. And I hope they shot it all in one take!

    I started in march, I set up my lessons then said " dad I need money for horse riding" and he was like "oh when did you start that then? Hahah" I was the only boy at the stables and nobody even batted an eyelid at me. And everybody was especially nice as I help with moving heavy things so that's your only danger getting asked to move hay bales etc hahaha:) there was a boy who took the pi** and so I took him to the yard and whacked a saddle on a Clydesdale, he wouldn't get on, then I didn't have any issues after that most of my friends have been in Arthur now and they're always asking if I can teach them and if they can come out

    How long does it generally take before someone can become a decent rider? This meaning they can compete in shows but not necessarily win anything.

    That's a really open-ended question, and it depends on what discipline you end up persueing. If you choose to do hunters, it may be three months months before you can take part in a local walk/trot schooling show class, or it may take a year. It also depends on how often you take lessons and the availability of shows in your area.

    As far as jumping goes, you may be showing in crossrails in six months or two years. There's a lot of variables to consider.

    ANY of us?

    I've always wondered if the handful of jumping lessons I had in my early 20s - which consisted of my getting on various horses and riding over various jumps with neither any instruction nor helmet - was an attempt by the very pretty instructor to get rid of my genes from the human gene pool. It is a good thing the horses knew how to jump. My vision was focused somewhere else...

    As for me in my jeans at 55 - if anyone wants to admire the view, I suggest visiting an optometrist. You probably missed a few stop signs on your last drive.

    I liked you at first, now you are simply annoying and getting an attitude. Your age is showing.
