New member... considering riding lessons
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.
