You are as old as you feel. Years don't mean a thing. It's how you yourself feel.

I love that last bit....

I wish I could say that I've been riding for a couple of decades but considering I'm only 17... haha

I've been riding since I was 6... so about 11 years. But i've been a horse lover forever!

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR
