I was about 3, but I didn't really ride at that age, more just sat there and smiled, but I continued from then.

Well, it depends what you call "riding" LOL. I started riding in front of my Dad when I was old enough to hold my head up by myself. I got my own mount when I was 3 (mini-burro that bucked me off LOL) and after figuring out the whole thing on him since it wouldn't hurt if I did fall off, I graduated up to our old 16 hand roping horse at 4. I rode him until I was about 10, I think.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I first started taking lessons when I was 5, but my mom deemed them a waste of money since I was just being led round. I took lessons up properly at 8, and started riding properly from then on.

Mount up and leave your troubles behind on the ground.
