What age did you feel your kids were ready for lessons? & the big one...Horse ownership?
I have a 6 yr old who was previously scared of horses. I finally talked him onto a horse and he is HOOKED LoL all he wants to do is ride. Now we talked that with riding comes responsibility. He has learned to halter, lead, fully groom, including picking feet, and all the ground basics, all within a week or two. He is super excited to learn. He checks water troughs without being asked and is always first out the door to feed. Its only been maybe a month now. I am praying he doesnt out grow this phase *fingers crossed*. I am getting him lessons and am wondering when I should buy him his first horse. I know Im probably jumping the gun but I have always hoped there would be a day I could buy my kid their first horse. My oldest even though practically born on a horse has no interest, so it's exciting for me that one of my kids caught the bug :)
What are your experiences with children and horses? For the ones with kids who caught the bug: how did you know it wasnt just a phase? When did they get their first horse? What did you require of them before they could own? I know I have a million more questions LoL so just tell me your stories :)
