I think it's just because I've not rode in 3/4 years properly, but DM's just got a livery set up, would going back to my old school and having a few lessons help at all? I'm not scared of horses, but getting on makes me feel all shaky, and the last horse I rode was a right missus... Also, If I can persuade mummy duck to loan me us a horse, what age/size/breed would be best for us to share, bearing in mind she's had a crushed disc taken out and has another still there (and were both breaking 6ft) her partner says try getting an ex police horse, but what happens to them when they retire? Help and advice muchly appreciated
I think having a few lessons is a good idea. I didn't after a similar break and regretted it. As far as breed, if you can find a TBxshire I'd recommend that cross. I currently have one, and he is by far the best horse I have ever had. Calm and sensible, without being boring.
