    ^ That was rather rude. Whatever. I'm still of the opinion that you're not ready. It's not fair to the horse for you to be so on and off about what you "love". I'd at least wait a few years before deciding. So many girls grow out of "loving" horses. It's a huge commitment. You sure you'll be out there every day to do all the chores, not to mention, riding? You may be ready ability wise, but that doesn't mean your ready for the time, the hard work, and the huge amount of money that it takes to properly care for a horse.

    Good luck with whatever you decide.

    I don't think you should buy a horse if you keep changing your mind, its not fair on the animal. You have only been riding for three years and therefore have little experiance in horsecare. I was riding for 10 years before I got my horse (4 months ago) and im learning every day even though I thought I had prepared everything before he came home.
    Keep taking lessons (like Speed Racer said), then if you get bored again then there is no real harm done. Try doing client shows/ competitions of your stables do them and see how you feel competing, if you want to go further then lease a horse first, keep the horse at a barn on livery then you will have a little help with the care side of things and there will be plenty of people to give you advice. Good Luck x

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet... my opinion on helping yourself come to a decision is to go WORK at a stable for a while. Find a barn in your area that you can volunteer after school and during the weekends so that you are immersed as much as possible in the day to day WORK involved. It's one thing to take lessons and to lease a horse, but completely different when you are depended upon daily, rain or shine (or snow) to show up and do the WORK. I'm sure a few weeks of that will help you decide.

    :) This is a perfect example of how I think you're one of the people want something so bad, and if you don't get it then you will keep trying, and if you do then you won't care. And this is showing me that you aren't ready for a horse because you don't want to listen to to the truth.
