Look I am in my 50's, I have ridden on and off for 40 + years, and I am a green rider.....my early training was rubbish, left me with a good seat but lacking in equitation skills. I have also changed disciplines, had a major accident (guess why? Yeah had a green horse I had no business trying to ride) and am starting all over again.
Green is a fact, not an insult
