You should talk to your dad and tell him that this is something very important to you and ask if he is willing to risk ruining your relationship over something like this.

Tell him you love him, but you are tired of all the fighting and that you would like his support. That this is something you want to do more than anything, and you will be really hurt if he chooses not to support your dreams.

Worth a try anyways.

As expected, I brought up the waver with my biological dad and he "politely" declined, saying things such as: "it doesn't have to be this way," trying to turn the fault over onto my mom and stepdad. I'm not pleased, to say the least - but, still hopeful!

I did, yes. My stepdad is doing everything in his power for me to be able to work with the horse, but no he didn't adopt me - he's marrying mom though, so doesn't that count for something along those lines? Thanks!

Thank you! It sounds like this is what we will end up doing, and I really appreciate you commenting!

Yeah, I plan to. I did tell him something along those lines on the phone when I brought up the waver, but he seemed to brush it off and tried to relocate the blame.

Thanks again, everyone. C':
