When i was younger i have a great memory of horses. My Grandparents used to take me to this place called the new forest its in England. It was acres and acres of Forest and there were wild horses. We would be sitting down at a pick nick bench when all of a sudden horses would come running by. They would keep there distance but get close enough that we could see them. I just wanted to share my story
My horse is a beautiful chestnut draft, she lives at my cousins house down the street, i love her so much, i love her riding she is so smooth and i like to teach her tricks, my cousins have 6 other horses so she fits right in, and they got 2 new 4 week old rescue babies! they are adorable!

What age is a good age to start horse back riding lessons? I have a 6 yr old daughter who wants to own a horse, but we live in a condo. She however has graciously offered to keep it in her closet. HA Anyway I was thinking about getting her lessons but not sure if she is still too young.
No, she is not too youg, it is good for her to start when she is little because she will have an easier time learning to find her ballance. I have been sitting on a horse since I was months old and started real lessons when I was five so six is a great age. Make sure that you find a place with really good instructors and a nice, well seasoned little pony. Together they should teach her the basics REALLY well. As for actually getting a pony, it is a HUGE financial investment so I would say find a place where you can ride someone elses pony and maybe, if your daughter is really into it part-board at first. If you have any other qs feel free to ask :)
