Hello ceiph, you've obviously found the Clydesdales/Athenas forum, so you know it's a very friendly group and full of motivators!

Yes, it does seem that many people stopped riding at age 16, but a lot more of them took twenty years or so to realise that that was a mistake! You are smart enough to return before it's too late .

Welcome to BF!

You'll get plenty of good advice in our Road Forum in terms of picking out a new steed. You absolutely sound motivated, and this forum will only increase that.
