I'm 23 too and just starting out, well starting over. I took a few lessons about 9 years ago and just started again from the beginning. Never too old

Define perfect! Are your family perfect? Are your friends? Horses are just horses, some you love more than others in the same way you love some people more than others. A perfect horse can be made un-perfect by bad handling, as an un-perfect one can be made perfect with good handling. They have their own personalities and any horse can be your perfect horse as long as you are realistic about your riding abilities and get a horse suitable for your level of riding.

23 is definitely not too late to start!
My mother began riding again at 45 after a 30 year break. She dragged me into it, and I took lessons and rode for years. I hated every minute of it. I didn't enjoy riding until i quit for 10 years and came back at 18. I've only been back at it for 3 years (2, since I have been at university without my horse this year), and have learned more about horses in the 2 years of being passionate and self-motivated about them then I did in years of lessons and being motivated by ribbons and nonsense. I am happy I started 'late'. The best part? I found my dream horse when I was 18 and he was 5. With how long horses live, he will be with me into my 30's, 40's, and maybe longer.

Welcome :)

You're never too old to pick up riding ;)

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
