Dear Amy: I am taking horseback riding lessons this summer and I am a little nervous. Do you have any suggestions? — Emily T., Minneapolis

Dear Emily: Horseback riding can be really fun, and you will probably learn to do even more than ride. You might learn about the care and keeping of horses, such as how early ranchers must rise to feed them. You may even get the chance to feed and help groom them yourself.

I have discovered a few sites that will help you learn a little bit more about horses before you begin your lessons. The more you know about horses, the more comfortable you will be around them.
