I am probably going to get bashed for this (I hope not though!), that isn't my intention at all for that to happen, but I can see why the OP is upset with some of the things said about her. I wouldn't have used the words snobs or whatever she used to respond back, that IS a kinda rude, but I think a lot of you were being pretty harsh on her. Some of the posters did have construtive criticism, but when things like this are said:
It sound like to me you're one of the people who just like to test to see if you can get what you want, then once you do you won't care. 'Ya know?
So my answer is keep up with lessons but no, don't own a horse. :) We don't need anymore homeless ones
(and btw I have NO grudges against the poster of this statement, so please don't think I do! :) it was just an example, in fact I like everyone on here so far.)
Then people WILL get offended (and I am guessing >>if she is younger) and she might act a little immature. It might be more effective to tell the OP in a way to where it will be beneficial to her if she does want a horse (like many of you mentioned waiting until she is absolutely sure she could take care of one without losing interest) IMO the OP is aware of her interests wavering, or else she wouldn't have posted. IMO it is also not up to us to tell the OP or assume whether or not she has a passion for horses. We don't know her personally, but of course since she did post this thread, she might not get feedback she likes so much and especially if she throws jibes at people (it is not needed, she could've expressed she didn't appreciate comments in a different manner), but overall I don't think some should've been so blunt and harsh.
To the OP if you are still here, I agree that you might wait till you are older or more willing to just focus on your passion for horses, as they are fun, but a HUGE responsibility (as was said) and know you might come across feed back here (or in the world as you go through life) you might not like, but be willing to take whatever criticism is given to you and apply it to your life in a positive way, rather than the way you did express yourself. It does no one good to bicker IMO.
