I know what its like to love horses and be horseless!
I rode a bit when I was younger and I worked for alot of my lessons (I only ever had like 20 in the end) It was really hard work and I didnt get anything out of it so I stopped. I have been offered a horse before, a good (old) horse that i loved but I had had to say no. I couldnt afford it and I couldnt keep him where I lived. That was four years ago and Im sixteen now
i still love them but I havent been for a lesson or anything since due to money. I have a non horsey family (except for my sister but she kind of 'grew out of it'
) and a non horsey boyfriend. I dont even live with my mum or dad anymore so Im like, on my own except living with my boyfriend and sister. Im lucky I have my boyfriend, he may not 'like' horses but he loves me and supports me. He has offered to pay for lessons and stuff but we are like, poor right now so I wont let him.
I am now going to start riding again soon though, I dont know why I picked now... Im trying to learn how to drive too
I have found a place close enough to where I live (THANKS HAPPYGOOSE!!!
) And I will start with whatever I can afford (maybe onnce every two weeks)
I tell myself every day that one day I will own my own horse (maybe two!) and I know its true. Im studying at TAFE and Im going to get my diploma at the end of the year so I can get a good job to pay for everything, and I do it for my dream of horses. Everytime I dont want to do an asignment I think of my boy and my horses. Its that motivation that gets me through. When I get a job I will be saving every penny I resonably can and I will be dreaming of my horses when I have to get up in the cold morning to go to work.
I know I will get there, theres no doubt in my mind because I have decided that that is what will happen. If any of you horseless people do the same, I can guarentee you'll get there too.
(Sorry for the long post)
