Well, sometimes I feel left out at my stables, because most of the children there have been riding since they were 6 and even younger. I am 14 now, and I started daily riding lessons when I was just 12, so I've been riding for about 2 years at my riding school. Though I used to do small pony rides and hacks when I was younger, and though I can't seem to find any pictures of me riding when I was younger, I am abit afraid that people won't believe me that I rode a bit as a younger girl. I am still looking for pictures, and should find some soon, but the point is, I love going to the stables, and feel I have my own horse there named Peggy, I've showed her once, and should be showing her again in the summer. I'm planning to go to otley college when im 16 or 17, so I would've been riding for 6 years or so. I've always loved horses, ever since I can remember, though because of never having enough money I couldn't afford to do lessons. Was 12 a good age to start riding, though I loved horses way before I was 12? I am jumping now by myself, and hacking myself and cantering myself too. Thanks.
