In my very late 20's I wasn't fortunate enough to have my own horse until then.
Rode at a riding school from the age of 6 and during my teenage years was fortunate to be allowed to ride ponies owned by a local dealer.
Following on from the other post, it seems that there are plenty around, just for fun lets see your dogs. I will start off with Wallace, he was a rescue 14 years ago, I have no idea of his breeding, some corgi and possibly pomeranian perhaps, but could be plenty of others he is quite unique...
I think you are underestimating the price it costs to breed a decent horse, from the stud fee to production. Something that is ready to go elementary will have had a good few hours training put into it.

Yep always have, at the moment I have
