    New member... considering riding lessons

    Hi everyone,

    I am just registered and am considering taking riding lessons. I've enjoyed horses my whole life, but have avoided lessons for fear that if I take lessons, I will inevitably want a horse (If you give a mouse a cookie...). Just what I need... an even more expensive animal-related hobby....

    But I am at the point now where I think I may want to take lessons. I have been reading some books about riding, and trying to locate stables that offer riding lessons for adults within a convenient commuting distance. I live in Baltimore City, MD, so I will have to drive out away from the city, I know. I've found a few decent looking stables, but have not visited any yet. I'm in no hurry- in fact, I won't make any decisions until next spring, most likely, as I am hoping to close on a house this Fall.

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated- especially from local people. Thanks in advance.

    Hi and welcome Hyp.

    Sorry I live in the UK so I can't help with the riding stables, but there's plenty of members on here who can.

    8) Ahh, there's nothing like being on horseback and spending time with a horse. You'll be addicted. Especially as you have enjoyed horses your whole life.
    Keep us posted how you get on, and glad to have you with us.

    Hey ya

    Definitely go and have lessons, if you can get through the sore butt/thighs/back/shoulders stages and still love it, then you are a born horse lover.

    Next step, try leasing a horse. You then have the physical and financial responsibility of looking after it but if things do not work out then you can give it back.

    If you still love it and would happily take out a second mortgage on your house to let your horse live in luxury, then you are a born horse lover.

    Next step, find yourself a new best friend, purchase, then join the world of the happiest, poverty stricken people you'll ever know!!

    Have fun!!
