    The best way to convince your parents to move to the country would be by buying the property.

    Wow. Quite honestly one of the most selfish posts I have ever seen. You better be glad you have a roof over your head at all. Some kids can't even say that they have that much, let alone parents willing to support their hobbies in the slightest. You want something more? Get a job and pay for it yourself.

    OK. I think the OP got the general message that she really has no right to expect them to move to please her. This feeling is pretty typical for a teen of this age. You can only have the perspective of a teen when you are a teen. Not really a crime to want what you want and think you can get it.

    I am a teenager and I fully support myself and would NEVER expect my parents to give up everything for me.

    then you are a great example. I certainly didn't support myself at 15.

    We don't know the whole story here, maybe shouldn't jump on the OP like that. For all we know, her parents are planning on moving and asked their daughters to pitch in ideas of what their ideas are and help find some property. She might just want to hear some supportive arguments for her choice. Shouldn't we let her explain the situation before jumping down her throat?

    We did let her have the opportunity to explain the whole story in the OP. I went through 3 daughters in their teens at the same time. I understand hearing, seeing and dealing with girls wanting and expressing their desire to be anywhere but where they are...Its the whole " The grass is greener in another pasture" syndrome that even us adults go through on a regular basis.

    I didn't mean for my earlier post to come across so brass anymore than ( I think) the OP meant for her post to come across as selfish as it did.

    At fifteen, I'm paying for my own horses. I simply can't fathom asking my parents to drop everything and move to the country for my own selfish motives. That's something you decide when you're twice the age you are now and paying your own bills.

    Even when my family did move out to the country when I was in HS and had 3 acres of land I was still not allowed a horse. My dad suggested it once (he thought a 4 legged creature mowing the back instead of him would be a lovely idea) and mom shot it down and that was that. I knew better than to ever bring that up again. And to try to "convince" her of anything like the OP is asking would have been the end of my social life for a long, long while.

    OP - enjoy what you have and plan for the future. I finally started making payments and board on my first horse the very last year of college and have had horses since. It will give you something to work towards in life.

    We forget that as a teen, time takes a long time to pass so looking at a possibility of having a much desired item is three or four years is like an eternity. It's when as adults our learning processes slow down that time starts flying by.
