New To Horses and Riding 46 years old
My 13 year old daughter has just started taking Western riding lessons, and i have decided to take lessons with her. I just turned 46, am I crazy for considering this?
Has anyone else started riding at such a late time in their life? If so, what is/was your experience? I have loved horses all my life, and was around them often as a child. I find it great that my daughter has developed an interest in them, and would very much like to be a part of her experience.
I find myself a little nervous about it. I have read some horror stories in the internet about injuries and how unsafe horseback riding can be.
Is this something i should be considering at my age. I have no interst in jumping/competing...just a little trail riding at some point when i´m sure of myself.
I would appreciate any tips or information you experts and more experienced horse lovers can offer.
Thank you in Advance
