    My guy routinely trots past a corner of the indoor where people sit and watch. No problem.

    Why bother with paying for lessons or horse upkeep? I'm sure you know some horse-owning friends or co-workers who'd be glad to let you "exercise" their mount for free. Oh, and bring your kids, too.

    Got my sinuses under control enough that I'm not currently riding one-handed while I blow my nose with the other (or, worse, launch snot rockets onto the arena floor).
