Im a 20-something (26) and just learning to ride with a friend, so I figured I would post up here. Only been on a few trail rides and the horse I ride is calm, if not lazy! He is the palomino in my avatar. I only get terrified when he decides not to be lazy and race my friends horse (also in avatar). So anyway, that's my story, just hoping to ride and learn more and maybe pick up some tips online.
