Oh it's totally worth it! It drains a portion that should go to savings but it makes me happy gosh darnet! That's what I tell people haha. And I totally know what you mean with the 10 year olds... the lesson before me has two young girls half my age jumping the same height :0 I'll see how we compare in the shows this summer >< haha.

Most shows split classes into junior and senior classes, so you wouldn't have to worry about competing with a 10 year old.

I've competed against 10 year olds in schooling shows....

This is my 53 year old, re riding butt, whipping ass at a show last fall. I was only a tiny bit embarrassed that I beat a 10 year old on a 12.2 pony

But HEY she took the ribbon for 'Jumper if the Year' in our club for the 2009/10 season

So HECK NO you are not to old, go for it.

Ok when I saw this post I thought you were going to be 40 or 50! You are not at ALL too old to ride! (I would say the same if you were 40 or 50) There are several adults at our barn who have started past their childhood years and do quite well. If you enjoy it, I say do it and have fun!

Aww thanks upnover!! :) I figured showing was one of those things where you had to start young (like 3 years old or something) I really do love riding and I am so excited!! Hopefully I will get to do a few low level shows next year!

Lol Amy, My mom still can't believe I am getting back into it! But hey it's my money and I have been waiting ten years to get back in the saddle!!! I am sooo excited :) Your horse is sooo cute btw!

Thanks! He is a cutie but I wish he was mine :( I leased him for 2 years but his owner had to move him and her new colt out of my driving distance. I should probably update my picture lol I'm on a new boy now at the place I'm taking lessons from and will lease him this summer. Definitely look into leasing this summer if you can, it's great for freedom & bonding! Have you found a favorite horse at the barn you're riding at?
