[RC] [Guest] Too old / too green? - Ridecamp Moderator

Ann saprater@xxxxxxxxxxxx
Talk about putting the cart before the horse: I have fallen head over heels in love with Endurance riding, but I'm not even what you would call an advanced beginner horseperson. I would love to be able to enter a LD and just finish (one day), but worry that I am too old and too inexperienced to attempt it in the future. I'm 28 (yes,I know that's not really old) but I have no horse experience, besides three weeks at a summer camp, don't own a horse, and am afraid of falling.

I've read where people have started riding later in life, but can you take up a new activity like horseback riding and then build up to such a strenuous sport like endurance riding in a few short years?
