It means that your teacher thinks you are capable of safely riding an experienced horse in an unfenced area. Congrats! I remember my first trail ride, it was so exciting. :) However, don't set a number on the lessons you want to get before going up a level, for example, starting to jump. You will do better if you take your time and really, really polish your basic skills. That way, when you can start doing something more, you will be equipped with really good balance and confidence. Nothing is scarier than a beginner jumping without a really good balance and steering skills in all gaits! That's an accident waiting to happen. So good luck in learning and being patient. :) Good things take time to come.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

And as for racing, if its not available, cross country is a very, VERY thrilling thing to do, you might like it!

She told me that when she was 30 she bought her first horse - Amber, RIP. Amber was absolutely the best horse I grew up with. I grew up wit three horses, two of which we still have and they are both 22.

My mom had no idea how to work with horses or anything about them basically. Our friend, T, was one of the best horsemans we know - and still to this day she is teaching and ride, she is at least 60. SO when Amber kept rearing up and chargin at the gate, my mom was terrified and asked T for some help. T said that it was all my mom's doing - her body language was entirely wrong and she was letting the horse know that mom was a predator or something (I don't remember exactly what it was.)

But now, twelve years later my mom is one of the best horse people I know out there. She is just about as good as T is, and T is a 4-h leader for horse, a horse trainer, she gives out lessons in western and english, she is one of the best.

So, no age is too late in my opinion. I am 15 years old and I have been riding for about two years now - my mom says I am pretty good. I'll take pretty good, because I know hardly anything and my horses trsut me with what I got and they do very excellent.

On that english question, I couldn't answer - I don't know enough about English. hehe!
Nice story , and thank u for the answer

Yup, that's what I figured you meant. Hope you enjoy horses as much as the rest of us! And if you really wanna learn, ask if you can help out when the farrier comes around. Lots to learn there!
