    Any other late bloomers out there?

    I've been a member on here for a while but haven't been on in a very long time. During that time, I've started taking riding lessons!

    As a kid I always loved animals, and my mom used to basically live in her saddle when she was young so that got passed on to me but I was never able to take lessons when I was a kid - either my parents were working and not able to take me, and then when they finally would have been able to take me we didn't have the money for it.

    Now, at 18 years old I'm finally getting formal training on how to ride and I couldn't be happier! I'm half leasing a horse at my stable for the next month and if it were closer I would honestly be there every day. Anybody else on here start late like me?

    its never to late to learn something new! I grew up riding out of necessity. I ran away from it soon as I turned 18 and now at 36 I find myself longing to get out of town and back to simple pleasures that I took for granted as a kid.

    Happy Herping!!!!

    Pretty boy you're riding Herpenthusiast

    This is Enzo, the quarter horse that I lease and usually take lessons on:


    He and I are the same height haha, I disappear behind him


    And this is Blue, the stable owner's quarter horse who I'm teaching myself to ride in liberty on - so no saddle, no bit.

    Re: Any other late bloomers out there?

    One day ill have land to have my own horse. My family has had farms (aunts and uncles) that I did work on an I used to help my cousin with rescue horses. I like riding a well trained horse, breaking in neglected horse is a ride but gets old after a while.

    That's really good though, we need more horse rescues around in my opinion. I'd love to one day be able to own my own horse, but I'd prefer not to board it so it's gonna probably be a while before that happens. Kudos to you for working with those horses though! That's great stuff.

    Haha it's surprisingly easy! I honestly prefer riding bareback over a saddle. You should give it a go next time you ride!

    It's in the horse forum I learned after a while here that any time a post was completely wack to me I should look up at what forum it's under. The best is when people talk about breeding females at 50 grams (usually a gecko post).




    On the topic of horses - my sister has been riding and owning horses for a long time. They are a huge amount of money and work to own but a pleasure. Always keep your next move in mind. It's never too early to consider what you'll do with the horses if you can't be around them for a while. Always be aware of how much money they are going to cost you when you end up footing the bill solo.
