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.

You might want to browse the Rider Wellness forum, as well. And feel free to ask questions. The people here are very helpful and supportive, not to mention, passionate about horses!

Welcome!

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.
