DS still having a wonderful time riding btw. He got double bubble this weekend as had lesson on Sat, and a playdate with nursery friend who has ponies on Sun (v small and woolly shetlands - they looked so funny side by side)
I skived off work this morning (I work from home, and was away all last week so can have the time back), and had a one to one lesson. Obv quite different to the group lessons/hacks I've done before. At least my good points outweighed my bad ones
And I thought, why didn't I start riding years ago ? Can't quite work it out tbh, as I'm enjoying it so much.
Thing is, I never had lessons as a child either, so not like I'm going back to it.
Getting a pony is a v long way off - time is an issue here, esp as it would be a drive anywhere to keep one. But I may just have been looking at the local college 'basic horse care' course dates. Y'know - just to know whats what.
Mitchy I know what you mean, it was that fast for me too. I had to stop when I was 15 because I hurt my back, 6 months turned in to a year... blah blah. At 28 a friend offered me a free ticket to a showjumping tournament - I ended up in the stalls buying gear, booked a lesson the following week... booked a trail ride in the Canadian rockies, came home, bought a horse, bought a house with a paddock...
