Hello! My name is Lori and I am a newbie at riding at the age of 45. I used to ride when I was a teenager, but this is like starting all over. I watch old people and very young people riding around every day and think, "that could be me". Unfortunately, the minute I get up on the horse I just think about the what ifs and freak myself out! Some people can be very harsh on here, but just know you have someone here who understands and will not judge you!
