Heck, I started learning how to ride a horse January 27, 2008. I am 19 now, but I was 18 when I started. Even with college, I still have time for my nana (nana = horse). When I started lessons, there was a 15 year old, and a 12 year old.. then the next class were kids that were between 5 and 10... I felt very strange, but I got over it.
