I am 51 and still riding 3 to 4 times a week with my girlfriends who all are over 40. We do trail riding, the longer the better.

I'm 51 and just getting back into horses after 20 years. I'm also way over weight and have a terrible time mounting a horse. We are working on building a mounting block so both my disabled husband and I can get on our horses.

I finally climbed on my husband's horse (well, actually my horse, I bought him - but hubby claimed him!) about a month ago. My oldest daughter took a picture and video of me on the horse. I felt so sorry for the horse I haven't been back on since then!

I'm the same way, I'm overweight and have a hard time getting on without a boost or a block. Please don't let that stop you. Statistically I'm to heavy for my horse so I get off every hour and give her a break. I don't let it keep me off her back
I have the 3 step mounting block, it works great. They are sold at several on-line tack suppliers.

53 -- I ride and help with chores a couple of times a week at a local rescue facility. I'd love to trail ride more often, but don't own a horse.

8)WELL.....I am a little older than the oldest, so far (!) - I ride 3 to 4 times a week - love trail riding!! If I can't find a buddy to ride with me, I will ride by myself - I have my 4 horses at home and care for them by myself. Don't know what I would do without them!
Keep on doing what you love and stay happy! Don't apologize for anything! YOU are the only one that matters - your horse loves you unconditionally! JUST RIDE! We've got a lot of fun years ahead of us!
