Yes, your article was very ironic? I just turned 26 and am aiming on taking lessons this year or next. My uncle actually bought me a horse when I was little, which stayed at his place, but I was too little to ride it yet. I loved going to the barn and feeding it apples though and I have gone on several trail rides through the years with experienced horses but am wanting to take real lessons and learn all the groundwork. My daughter has shown an interest and my husband and I hought it might be nice for us all to get involved, especially since we (my husband and I) have always liked horses.
