As per my user name, I know next to nothing about horses. My DH and I have been discussing riding lessons for my daughter and myself.
What do I need to look for in a teacher for her and for me? She is 5, a little on the short side and weighs about 40 lbs. What size pony/horse would be good for her to start on?
I am 5'3" and weigh 215. Pretty short legs. What size horse would be good for me?
Are there any tips that anyone can give me, ie: things I need to watch for with the teacher, questions I should ask about training methods, when to shut-up and listen and when/what to ask?
We're planning on buying both of us helmets and boots. Can anyone give me suggestions as to which manufacturers are best?
Thank you so much in advance!
