    This is fine. Also, look through whatever type of riding you like and you may find some stuff there. I am a trail rider, so I always read and post in the trail riding section. Welcome aboard.

    I'm confused. So you have been posting under the influence?

    I didn't start lessons till 50 y/o, then crashed bad (lots of busted bones), so gave up, figuring was too old. 9 years later, a co-worker pushed me back into it. Just one new lesson under my belt, but barely. Just came here for advice, like exercise & overcoming huge fear (could barely mount a sweet 15 hand gelding, & couyldn't believe how scared I was.): therefore, am I still in the right place? Thanks for your help.

    Riding can be dangerous as you well know. Riding also gives me a reason to get out and move. A lot more people die from sitting on the couch setting themselves up for heart attacks than get killed from horse riding accidents.

    If you want to ride, ride. I would do several things.

    1. Only ride well broke horses.
    2. Wear a helmet.
    3. Wear proper boots or used caged stirrups so you can't get dragged.
    4. Don't try to be a dare-devil. Just start out slow.
    5. Use a mounting block.

    Thank you! Went to 40s site & posted (also not well versed on how to use this site, but learning). Will keep on trying, albeit $$. This needs to be done for my soul...& likely to save my life. Thanks again.
