    That really sucks. But at least you're still able to be involved with horses. When things settle down a bit you might be able to work something out with one of the stables.
    Keep your head up, things will work out

    Well I will say that yes, things will change for you but you must find the benefit of what is new in your life through the changes that have occured. As we go through life, no matter your age and no matter your circumstance, life makes you make choices. Now you can choose to be angry, sad , frustrated and long for the life you once knew or you can look at the new opportunities that lie ahead for you. This is what makes or breaks people in their life's choices. Do you know that some adults still carry around with them angry feelings towards their parents or siblings and sometimes carry that craziness to their graves. They stay angry or annoyed and it makes their life miserable. I know you may not realize this right now but this is a change and a big opportunity for you but find the good in the change. Don't hold on to anger or frustration. Be creative, use your brain to make this work for you.. .talk to the farm owners/managers and ask them to help you, talk to your parents as they know that their separation isn't just them but involves the whole family. What would we have if the butterfly larva never came out of its cocoon because it didn't want to change? What if it didn't change into the butterfly that we all love to admire ? Well, we'd have a bunch of butterfly cocoons and no butterflies to see.
    LIfe is all about how we deal with change. Remember your life is full of changes and will always be, learn to make positive improvements for your own benefit..do what is going to make you happy. You are getting to make a decision now because of a new situation . Take some positive action and tell your parents despite the situation, you want to move forward with being around the barn and horses and I bet some things change for the better and you will feel better about your life . I wish you were closer to my barn, I could use the help and I only have 10 horses... make yourself available and let people know how much you want to be around the barn and the horses.

    I ride once a week. Most teenagers I know do one riding lesson a week. I know people that only get to ride once a MONTH. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and be happy that you still get to ride. One of my friends parents recently split up, she had to sell her house, all her horses, all her gear, everything. She doesn't get to even be around horses, let alone ride them. Be happy for what you have.

    Sounds like what happened to me at 13, let your life settle down, my mum lives basically on the doll, I don't work yet, and we have a horse. :) It makes life challenging, it just depends how commited yo uare to getting into horses. Wait a bit, do as much as you can at the schools, and get as much knowledge as you can, and when your old enough, get a job. :)

    I only got bi weekly/monthly lessons, so what you get is already better then what I had. Noone I new had horses, I just had a love for them. When I was 12 I had to move away and did'nt have any lessons till I was 14, k now I own my horse, and am just starting to bring him back into work, he cost us $1000, but he's cost us in other ways, vetting and such. But he is stubborn as, and probably is'nt the perfect first horse. :)

    Things will work out!

    I didn't even live near horses when I was growing up. At one point I was bussed an hour to take 8 lessons with an after school program in 5th grade. I didn't ride again until I was 23 and lived near a lesson barn and could afford lessons. Now at 35 I own a horse (have on/off since I was 27).

    So yeah, ignorance is bliss, but knowledge makes you stronger.
