I wrote up this long post, then realized I was in Off Topic, not Off Course.
Where would you recommend for beginner lessons for a 13yo as close to Delaware County (Ridley Park) as possible? This is for my step niece, whose family is very much NOT animal people. Any discipline would be fine.
I am from SE PA originally, but Chester County, plus my contacts are all dated. I know it’s a tough ask to find something in the area given how developed it is. But seeing how not horsey my stepsister and her husband are, I want to set them up at a good place to hedge off future disaster, because they don’t “get” these things.
I know there is likely little to nothing in Delco they could afford, but there may be close options in Jersey I’m not familiar with.
