Hmm Im not much help here I just wanted to say I wish I had a group to go trail riding with too! Except we have no trails at my barn lol, my trail ride is going a few times around the outdoor arena or up and down the barn aisles lmao! . I actually love riding with the older ladies (im 19) but they have such great stories about how the barn (its 80 some years old!!) was before I was around and it is all just so interesting...i love history any kind! And I know what you mean about the tweens or younger kids....i can't stand them! Posting stuff up at tack shops and local places like a starbucks or something where a lot of "young" people hang out could get some attention. Too bad you werent closer!

I used to ride w/ a group of 50+ old farts. Some of them had a hard time controlling their mounts and some needed help mounting and dismounting, but man were they a riot! They used to tell these stories... From days gone by and they were so fun to listen to and they would get to laughing and carrying on. I learned so much from those OLD FARTS. From life in general AND horse care and riding. They may have LOOKED like they didn't know how to ride, but they knew... they had all kinds of knowledge!

That beings said. It's not hard to start a group. You want to run an ad in the newspaper, posts some flyers.... etc. YOu need to get a non-profit ID and set up a post office box and what not but it's not hard to do... I think you can get online and find rules... you can even set an age limit, minimum and maximum.....

I wonder if Craigslist has a section for something like that. Worth a look anyway.
I honestly took no offense at the no old broads allowed. I don't blame you for wanting to be with horsey people your own age.

I think CL would have a section for it, at least in the farm/garden section or pets anyway.

If you have a "Penny Saver" or free type ad paper - even Craig's List - you can put an ad in there looking to start an "Under 30 (or whatever) Riding Club".

All joking aside, hope you find the group that's right for you. Makes that precious time in the saddle even more special! Good luck and have fun!

BTW, when you're ready, us ole gals will be more than happy to ride with you. Just remember we take a few more "p" breaks than most!

Lol, I've got the flyer started. I will post it when done and see what you guys think. If you would want to join my group of what....

Walkamile- my last trail ride I had to take a "p" break it wasnt fun, but so glad I did because I don't think I would have made it home, happy. :P

Younger people tend to be broke people.
DO you have a truck ?
Do you have a trailer ?
Personally I wouldnt consider getting a horse until I had those two. But seems lots of younger and especially female people get the horse. Then have no way to transport it. Makes riding "with someone kinda hard"

Join AERC, American Endurance riders conference. Find those old ladies doing 50 to 100 mile endurance rides and tag along with them on some training rides if you can keep up. Also people of all ages. Might be what you are looking for.
