Hey there(: I rode from ages 5 to 13, and then quit because I was bored. I rode english and western, showed and all, but I lost my feeling for it.
Now, I started up again a year later, and it's even more fun than before. I have my own horse and it's a wonderful thing. It's been almost 5 years that I've been back riding, I almost regret quitting, but at the same time, I think it was good to wait. I have a wonderful horse, and probably would have passed her by if i had kept on riding.
When I was around 9-13 I did tons of sports on top of horseback riding: gymnastics, soccer, cheer-leading, basketball, volley ball, and field hockey. You can totally try doing other sports while staying involved with horses.
If you're hesitant about quitting riding, why not try a sport along with riding?
(gymnastics is awesome to combine with riding because..
a- improves balance
b- builds muscle
c- more flexibility and control
d- you could learn vaulting if you find that you REALLY like it.
I live to ride and I ride to live
Horses are just angels without wings
