Just curious
Just wanted to make this pole for fun. You don't not have to answer your age if you wish not to but more or else vote for you age and then how long you have been riding for. If you had any breaks or just consistant? :D

I am 19 (will be 20 in March) and I have been riding for 16years. It might be more like 15ish because I had to take a year off after a riding accident where I tore all the ligamints(SP) in my leg. That sucked.

I am 24 and I guess you could say I have been riding all my life. I started out as soon as I was able to hold my head up by myself. That is when my Dad started putting me in the saddle in front of him while he warmed up his show horses. I got my own mini-burro when I was 2 and got my own QH when I was 4. Started training my own horses when I was 14. I have had lots of scrapes, bumps, bruises, and broken bones to add to my education. Luckily though, none of them kept me off a horse for more than a couple of days.

I'm almost 29 and I've only been riding for a little over 2 years...I guess you might say I wasn't lucky enough to grow up around horses although I ALWAYS dreamed of one day owning my own horse, ever since I was a little girl! (anyone else have 40+ My Little Ponies?? I'll bet I wasn't the ONLY one on this forum who did!!) I started taking lessons 2 yrs ago from my trainer, he taught me everything I know, and now I finally own a horse and couldn't be more excited!!! I find that I learn something new every day as well...from her, from my friends at the barn where we board, and from all of you on here!! :-)

I'm 17 and I've been around horses my whole life, but I've been riding consistently for the last five or six years.
