    Rekindling an old hobbie

    Hi all. Let me introduce myself, Bobby Lee a 40 year old guy from Dorset. In fact just turned 40 and probably having a midlife crisis which is why I want to start riding again.
    I used to ride, from my earliest memories until I was about 18 years old. Then started uni, partying and completely lost interest. Sold my horses and haven't been back in the saddle since. Well I've decided to nook some lessons and see how things go. I'm really excited about it actually, perhaps nervous as well. In my mind I think I can still ride like I did back then. It'll be a shock if I can't do it anymore.
    Anyone got any advice, or similar experience, would love to hear.

    Hey there Bobby Lee!

    Welcome. You will not be alone as a middle aged person starting riding again. I restarted at 42, though I did not have a real huge background as a child, so for me it was almost a total start, not a restart.

    By the way, what does "nook" mean?

    I wondered about that. But, since you are UK, I didn't want to make assumptions. It might be some UK slang that I was not aware of. Wouldnt' be the first time.

    Lol, No nook isn't a word as far as I know. I can understand how you could think that though.

    I mean. Like this. . ." the other day I looked over and saw the two of them nooking. The nerve!"

    " I just hate it when my _____ nooks on me."


    " when nooking on vacation, always bring your ___________"

    " the best way to learn how to nook is to _____________"

    Yours?

    Well we do use the word nookie. It's a kind of old fashioned way of saying getting it on. Like "they were having a bit of nookie". But trust me I didn't do that to get the riding lessons.
