Well, when I was 5 my parents realized I needed some kind of outlet for my energy. I had been pointing out horses since before I could really talk, and I was not scared of the ones my parents had. At 4 years old I was riding my dad's TWH are already. I was a headstrong child and, although the BO next door to us didn't normally advise kids getting horses until they were 8, he told my parents that I was percocious (sp?) enough to get a pony. He found one for $500 and told my parents he felt it would be a good pony for me.

My parents were new to horses at the time, but luckily for me they soon had many horsey friends who were willing to help us all get better with the horses. :) I haven't stopped since.

About a month before my 11th birthday, my mom asked me if I wanted to get a horse. And so I got a horse for my 11th birthday present. I've been through quite a few since due to becoming a better rider.

I liked horses, I had ridden every other week or so (a family member's horse) but I never asked or begged for one.

Baby Q will have her horse waiting for her when she comes out of the womb. :)

Sixofdiamonds, my little granddaughter will have a pony as soon as she shows an interest. I almost brought one home with me from the Equine Affair in Springfield Mass! Keeping fingers and toes crossed that she has the "disease" like me!

Wannahorse,(leans in and whispers) I bet your parents haven't asked you because they already know the answer.

Don't lose heart!

I've been into horses for as long as I can remember. My dad grew up with them when he lived in Africa, but my mom has never liked them much. My dad put up with everything horsey. Attended shows, took me to lessons... You name it, he did it. It wasn't so much of If I get a horse, it was when. I honestly thought I would never get my own horse. He always told me if I got a job we could split it. He could afford to let me keep a horse, but not buy one. So I always thought I was hopeless because I could never make enough to get a horse. Funny how things work out. A very close friend asked me one day if she bought me a horse if my parents would pay for board. This was after taking care of her horses for two years. She's like a grandma to me.

I love my daddy. He wants to help with everything. I think it's so cute because I'll walk away and when I come back he'll be talking to Cricket or grooming her. He gets to ride, sometimes too and Cricket will babysit him. They're adorable.

I'm still woking my parents too wanna! My dad grew up on a farm but then my mom turned him into a city boy :/. My grandma has made sure we had a horse since I was about 8 but unfortuanatly they've all been too old to ride for more that a year or so before turning out to pasture and then she decided 3 ft tall horses would be good :roll:. I'm now working my parents to let me actually pick out my horse, maybe this one I can ride! Lol! I'm laying off right now since I just got a bnch of cool stuff for Christmas but soon I'll be back to begging! Hehe! I thik it might happen, my parents are pretty supportive and they know it's not just a phase. My mom took my to riding lessons and she got me my bird, my dog, and a bunch of new stuff for the minis. I got my dad to realease a mouse too so he should'nt take that long eigther. Maybe someday me and you will both get our own horse wanna.........

I was lucky enough to be born into a horsey family where I was on horseback in utero! I always had a horse or pony. When I was in high school and had a job, I had to pay for 1/2 of the costs for my horse, lessons, eventing and such. My youngest girls ride and each have their own pony or horse. They kind of take it for granted though so I think sometimes it's better if you have to work for it a little.......

Still working on it!!!!! Lol
I've been given the go ahead to get the horse, with my OWN money, and ONLY when I've got my licence and bought a car. Sigh, this could take a while.
