Dont feel bad! I'm 20 and just had my second lesson last Saturday! I've also noticed that most riding schools have TONS of pics of little kids and ponies and that just makes me feel fairly inferior. Instead of going to an actual riding school I just found a local trainer that was willing to train me. She's about $20-$25 cheaper for an hour lesson than the local schools and I really get that 100% focus on me that really helps.
