I was really quite young when I got my first horse, my mom decided I was ready, I board my horse, I love it, I meet so many people and im getting my name out there in the hrose world. But if I were you just make sure that you would rather spend your time with your hrose or mucking out stalls rather then going to see the latest movie with your friends and stuff like that. Personally I have never been a people person, so the choice was easy for me. But once you are ready to commit all your time for an animal that could, and quite frankly, probably would, make you mad, buck you off and or bite you. And I would make sure your parents (or you) have the money to pay a pretty big vet bill if anythign was to happen. And would you walk your horse around the arena for six hours when he has colic? And do stuff liek that? That is how me and my mom decided I was ready for a horse
If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
