ToManyHorsesAndOnePony-I, too, was making a point. Maybe you should reread. And be less rude, yourself.

The bottom line here is that people don't want to see a young rider get hurt. I don't think there's anything "rude" about that. The circumstances considered, OP has received many helpful suggestions.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I think it's great that you want to help your younger cousin out. Just remember to keep safe and go very slowly.
I am 36 years old, just bought my 2nd horse after not having any for 20 years! I was a teen when I had my 1st horse given to me as a gift. I managed to get a few basic pointers from a few adults at the time, but no real lessons. Looking back I realise I must have been pretty brave getting on that horse. I also realise I knew practically nothing. Now I have a horse again the 1st thing I'm doing is getting an instructor.
I think it's very rude of some people saying why did she get a horse without being able to ride. I have- and the reason for it, is I just wanted to learn on my own horse. Why learn on someone else's when yours can be a totally different temperament.
In the end it's your horse you have to ride not the bomb proof riding schools.
Anyway an instructor for riding is one thing, but it also so great that she has someone like you to show her the basics of horse care!
