    How Can I Teach!!!

    I am a teenage rider and REALLY want to teach!!!! Help. I don't know what to do because everyone says that you've gotta be 18. I've apprenticed for 6 years already too. I just want to teach!

    My friend taught lessons when she was 16 so Idk why it would be a problem I taught my cousins how to ride when I was 16. But people find it better for a more older person to teach there child how to ride. I think that's what they perfer someone whos 18 and legal.

    How old is a teenager? Theres a big difference between 15 and 17.

    I taught when I was 16 but it was to friends and family and I never charged. I also didn't have insurance so I was lucky I didn't have any mishaps.

    Well sure, but her age will certainly influence the amount and type of clients she gets and what decisions she can make regarding her business practices, insurance, liability, etc.

    Yeah. I am getting certified as well as liability and insurance.

    Well, first of all insurance is a BIG thing. If something goes wrong you'll be in big trouble. However I doubt the teenager can get that kind of insurance (although I may be wrong).

    Another thing is depends on who and what you want to teach. The beginner friend is one thing, real customer is whole another.

    I agree I don't think a teenager can but I mean they can teach people that they know who want to ride and just have them sign a liability form but when she gets old enough she can get insurance I am 21 going on 22 next September so I am able to get insured when I have my own place etc.

    Babe, people in this country have a nasty habit of suing for EVERYTHING. Friend of yours today, who fell off the horse during your lesson, will talk to you in court tomorrow. I'm not trying to be mean, but I know absolutely ridiculous stories (from my local horse people) regarding complaints from friends/neighbors/etc, and how they ended up in court (with lots of money and nerves wasted).
