Another parent rant from yours truly.
Here's the situation:
I've been a western rider my whole life and recently got hooked on English, so I've been saving up for a used English saddle that will actually fit me and my horse.
Well, I found one that's a complete steal and everything I want.
I'm 17 and waitress part time (I put in two 8 hour shifts nearly every weekend).
I have more than enough money put away for the saddle I found.
So, I approached my mother about it today and told her that I found a saddle, and it's less expensive that most saddles I've drooled over for the past year, but I just need to know how to get it from where it is to here.
Her response was basically that she didn't care and wasn't going to help me because it has nothing to do with her.
I've been in the English saddle fight with my parents on and off for the past year and all I've gotten out of them is:
- "It's useless"
- "How is it going to benefit you? You already have a saddle."
- "It's a waste of money."
And other negative things.
So, now I've hit a wall. I want to go ahead and get it, but I don't have anyone to help me figure out the payment and shipping.
Alrighty, I'm done.
