I do not think your age defines you. It is just a number. I know people who are in their 50's who are just learning to ride, and little girls who are 10 who can ride a horse like they stole it. It depends on you...like I said before...your results will be your business card. If you can train your horses will be your examples. The rest will work itself out. Follow your heart, and keep pushing forward. I don't think age has anything to do with one's ability. Time with horses does. Some older people may have spent more time with them, some maybe just be starting out. Just focus on you, no one is perfect, no one knows everything. The maturity to realize you are leaving a lasting impression on the animals and people you work with is the main concern that I have. If you take this responsibility serious and can admit what you can and can not do honestly to yourself and others, you have a good foundation...just flow with it.
