Where and when can my little girl ride a horse?

My five year old daughter loves horses. Are there any good stables or horse farms near Vernon Hills, Il (Lake County, northern Chicago suburbs) for her get some riding lessons?

She's been up on a horse before at a stable near Galena, Il, which offered "lead-line" rides where an instructor leads the horse. Is five old enough to start riding? If not, how old do you think is old enough?
Even if you don't think she's old enough to ride I'd appreciate some recommendations for when the time comes, and also places where we could at least go and visit the horses and maybe feed them some carrots.
