I'm the only one in my entire extended family. Kinda sucks. Nobody gets why I would spend all my money on my horse, and I don't get why they don't get it.
I'm the only one who has interest and is starting to get into it. Although I have ALWAYS had an interest in horses and riding since I was really young. When I was 10 I went to Roatan, Honduras to see my dad (after he left me and my mom when I was two) and he had a couple of skinny horses that probably were never really looked after (i don't know I didn't care I was too young to notice and loved the horses anyway) and he took me up the mountain on a pony he had. The pony began trotting and I was slipping off and that was a little scary. But I adjusted myself and insisted that I stay on the pony anyway. I walked the big bay horse around the shoreline and spent most of my time around her. This all only lasted 3 days, after that he was on the run again. We (my sister, my grandfather and I) went to the mainland and stayed with distant cousins.. My mom wasn't too happy when she found out we spent 3 days out of two weeks with our dad. But its okay now that I am older I have come to terms with the fact that he's a loser lol. But anyways that was the only time I was on a horse. Ever since I've always wanted to get back on a horse and REALLY ride without a rope leading me around. I want my chance to hold the reins on my own.
