So Excited!

I haven't been on this forum for a long time, because I've been busy with life and almost forgot about it for awhile. For anyone that doesn't know, I'm 16, and don't have a horse. I've been trying to get back in the 'horse world' for some time now.

Well, I have my drivers license and I'm going to get a car very soon. Then I just have to get it registered and all of that. When I get my car, I'm going to get a 'real' job other than babysitting. Then I will have money to take two horse riding lessons a week.

I'm also going to save up Christmas and Birthday money to go to a horse riding camp this Summer.

I'm so excited!!! But I do have a few questions...

Do I take western or english riding classes? The western classes are a lot cheaper than the english, but they don't look as fun to me. And I really like the thought of jumping. But is jumping considered english? (Sorry, if that doesn't make sense)

Are most of the people taking horse riding lessons little kids? Because I'm going to feel very embarrased. Not that I really mind...its just that, most likely they will be really good at it and then I will get on and totally suck at it. Maybe I'll make the first three lessons private or something. I don't want to embarrass myself too much.

Thanks in advance

If you want to jump, go English. And no, people of all ages take lessons. No need for embarrassment. Good luck and have fun.

I found a horse stable offering huntseat lessons. Is that the same as jumping? Sorry for the dumb questions.

I'd check with the barn. Most of the hunt seat classes around here are hunt seat equitation, so just ask the stable what the lessons will cover.
