Hmmm what would work on my dad "Hey pops, so I was thinking, I have no indoor arena to ride in and it's sooooooo cold, in fact too cold to ride unless I'm in the indoor arena. So I think since I can't ride I'm going to start dating." ...Then I would go into a lengthy description of the cute totally boy bad in grade 12...

If this were my dad I would either be riding in the coverall or I'd be grounded until I was 30.

Are they warm inside? Like warmer than metal arenas?

I think I may be in love......

You say that dad has a heart of stone; is this the reason that he's denying you? I.e., no GOOD reason?

If he's got a heart of stone toward you, I extend my sympathy to you. In that case, all you can do is see what will float his boat, as mentioned, your doing a bunch of extra work for the privilege. And IF he has a softer heart toward horses, I'd approach it from the "horse welfare dept.": they need exercise, they need dry footing so that they don't break a leg outside, they're bored, they need the mental stimulation of playing in the arena, etc.

Good Luck!

Maybe you could suggest you spread all his stuff into piles in the barn and use it to maneuver on your horsey, practicing your movement off of the leg and teaching your horse to bend.

Have you asked him why it would be such a problem to divide it up for both of you to use?

Tell him you will become a delinquent if you don't have a space to ride in. Give him names of crack dealers you will be associating with if he doesn't remove his belongings from the premises. Is that the kind of advice you are requiring?

Your Dad should consider the welfare of the horse(s); is your mother, or his SO, or any other adult you trust able to talk sense into him?
