I am ______ (insert bad words here)

Some of you may have seen my other thread, about me switching barns.

The coach there is the best I could ever have and the price is right. It is closer to my father's house but 10mins longer from my mother's.

I am so angry !

My father currently drive 45 mins one way. My mother drives 15 mins. She didn't give a choice to me or my father as to were I wanted to board my horse. She told me I had to board there, even though I pay for it all myself.

My mother moved to the boonies. I told her I was not happy moving, and her moving could impact our relationship and my riding. She didn't care, she did it anyways. Whatever.

So with my father in town, it is very hard to find a board offering indoor stabling, cheap prices, and an indoor arena. Not to mention, all the farms in our area are hunter and jumper. NEVER EVENTING BARNS AND I AM AN EVENTER.

Lately, I have not been having fun at my barn. I want to leave and have for awhile.

The only barn with my standards (price range mostly, as I am only 15yrs old) is about 45 minutes from my moms. 15 minutes from my dads. The roles are reversed.

I told my mom and she told me I had to stay at my farm, and she would REFUSE to take me to see my horse while I was at her house. THERE IS NO OTHER FARMS INBETWEEN THE HOUSES MEETING MY CRITERIA!

SO I am stuck at my barn while the coach is evil, the girls are catty, and the price has been raised to high for my liking.

My mom is just so rude!

My horse is the reason I wake up in the morning.

Awh , sorry things aren't working out for you. Is it possible to stay at your dad' s part of the week to go to the barn you want? Or can you get a ride with one of the friends that will be at the new barn?

that sux. Maybe after you finish out the school year you can discuss living full time w/ him and visiting her on weekends? it's never fun when you live in a split family like that. It's probably easier on her to have your barn closer, I'm not sure if you have siblings or what all she has going on but I'm sure she's not being as selfish as it seems.

PLUS - next year you will be 16 and then maybe you can move to the other barn because you'll be able to drive. I'm really sorry, this is a tuff one...

have you tried looking for private eventing barns in the area? i have the same problem as you, there are NO eventing barns around where i live either and i am also 15 so i do not yet have a license to be able to drive all the way out to the ones i have found. but i know in my area at least there are quite a few private eventing barns. only problem is that they're all in florida for the winter months. lol.
