I was about 3, but I didn't really ride at that age, more just sat there and smiled, but I continued from then.

Well, it depends what you call "riding" LOL. I started riding in front of my Dad when I was old enough to hold my head up by myself. I got my own mount when I was 3 (mini-burro that bucked me off LOL) and after figuring out the whole thing on him since it wouldn't hurt if I did fall off, I graduated up to our old 16 hand roping horse at 4. I rode him until I was about 10, I think.

I had my first lesson at 3, and started helping at the stables every Sunday sinse I was about 8! It was more about love and less abot riding until now, now I have my Mr. Perfect!

I first started taking lessons when I was 5, but my mom deemed them a waste of money since I was just being led round. I took lessons up properly at 8, and started riding properly from then on.
