Q:

There was a difficulty in getting my credit card correct during ordering so I am being charged twice. I'm afraid to cancel one for fear of cancelling both. Would you prefer I keep both (for myself) or is it possible for you to cancel one (if you prefer). I'm an older adult, beginning rider; fairly athletic -- just never was around horses except a couple of tourist trail rides.

Q:

I have one more comment, rather than a question- when I move to Costa Rica, I will probably be riding their BEAUTIFUL naturally gaited Paso Fino-type horses. The saddle I used was a "McClellan" type - neither western nor english, and the bridle was bitless, with a single loop of rein (hackamore?). It Is very different than anything I had ever seen. I rode western as a kid, & took a few English riding lessons as an adult. Are you familiar with the type of tack & riding style that is in Costa Rica? The horses are very comfortable to ride- very smooth.

A:

I am very familiar with the style of riding you are talking about. I do not have anything like it at my farm.

Q:

Would this type of lesson be useful for a relative novice rider? I basically learned to get on a horse & ride, no particular style. I went to Costa Rica recently where the horses are ridden without a bit - hackamore style I believe. Very easy riding. I need some refresher lessons, since I have not ridden much in years. I am 60 years old, & like a small horse.

A:

This is very useful for the novice rider. This style of riding is the basis for all other styles and if you can do this, you can do just about anything.

Q:

Is there an age limit?

Maria P.  asked on  Aug 25, 2013

A:

I usually start students at 4 years old. There is no upper limit as long as you feel comfortable getting on.
