It seems to me that your parents are trying to cut back somewhere, and unfortunately for you, weekly riding lessons are a luxury they probably just can't afford right now.
Instead of focusing on the bad, focus on the good. At least you'll still get to ride. Many of us, myself included, didn't ride as children because our parents couldn't or wouldn't let us take lessons.
I had to wait until I was an adult and had a full time job before I could take lessons and buy my own horse.
You'll just have to throw yourself more into your music on the days you don't ride.
Really, it's not a tragedy. Riding and lessons are expensive, and until you're an adult making your own money, you don't get to dictate on what your parents spend their hard earned cash.
