    Dear 14-16 year old Blue,

    FOR GOD'S SAKE LISTEN TO THEM. They aren't out to get you, they're just telling you the truth, and they DO know what they're talking about. You're being an idiot and your horse is going to pay the price for it.

    Don't get married, don't get pregnant.

    Find a way to go to college with equine programs, to be able to train Saddlebreds, you can do it, even without someone backing you.

    Just because there aren't any women doing it now, doesn't mean there won't be women doing it when you are one.

    Also, grow a backbone and make that horse behave! Listen to the trainer and stop worrying about falling.

    People don't have horse problems, horses have people problems. Fix yourself then fix your horse.

    Don't let it get to you, and stick with it. Try to talk to people at the stables, even tough you are to shy to. You will regrett giving up several years later...
