I printed that out, and I'm making my parents read it since they think horses are a waste of time and money.

I love reading that, it is pretty true for the most part. When I was turing 16 I went through a rebel stage (parents separated) but in the end it was my horse that brought me back. She didnt leave me (like past bfs) she didnt yell at me when I came home hung over from a long night, she always listened to what I had to say and never talked back, she was ready to go (even for that midnight ride), she was my therapy.

My dad would often complain about the "hay burners" that were on the farm. But what he doesnt know is those early mornings for shows saved me from staying out all night on the town, I loved doing it too much and lost some friends because of horses... but in the end I won. I can pinch a penny many times over just so that I have enough saved up for an emergency situation, feed, health care, and that "must have" tack...lol. I learned that baling hay is tons of work but it keeps my horse from starving. Doing plowing and planting a field on a hot day does build character and come harvest time I had bedding and grain.

Stall cleaning is a great way to get all of the frustrations out, and since I started boarding I do miss going out everyday to feed and clean... it is kinnda weird.

Sorry I went off, thanks agian for posting that :)

I' am deeply touched by that story. I have a 5 year daughter that I worry about everyday as to how she is going to grow up. She is learning to ride and I pray that she has the same love and passion as that girl in the story.
