I would try it!
Don't prevent yourself from learning. When you finally get "real" lessons, your "real" instructor can correct you and teach you better. And when you switch instructors, that person will tweak a little more. And then it will happen again when you move again.
What you need are the basics like handling and balance. You also need to experience different types of horses. Lazy ones, quiet ones, spooky ones, trained ones, less than trained ones, logs with ears... The more horses you learn how to handle, the better off you will be. You have plenty of time to find a reining barn and go that route. Get your personal groundwork done first.
Don't turn down an opportunity to learn. If there ever comes a point where you do not want to learn, then you have stopped growing and can no longer become more or better. You can learn something from everyone.
If you had said this man was an accountant, then maybe you wouldn't assume he knows anything about horses. Tack store though. That is promising. You have to have a good knowledge of the products you are selling and what they are used for to run a shop like that. I wouldn't count him out.
