Some riders first learn when they’re youngsters; others begin riding as young adults; still others first swing a leg over when they’re in middle age and beyond.

We’d like to know: When did you first begin learning how to ride a horse?

Please answer the poll question below, then check the results of the survey in the “Saddle Chat” section of our September 2017 issue to see how other readers’ learn-to-ride experiences compare to yours.
