I am so lucky as to have willing and supportive family members. No one in my family knew a fetlock from a forelock.
I was the first person in my family to become involved with horses, and still am.
My brother is the "competition" one. He wants me to go to Rolex.
My mom has all the faith in the world in me, and believes
go to Rolex.
She'll be the one on the sidelines crying and screaming, "Please don't fall off!!" She wants me to succeed and excel, but is always concerned with my safety.
My dad.....he is a whole different story.
My boyfriend is also very supportive. He is just now understanding the fact that I want to go far(not necessarily Rolex, but maybe Training
). He buys me any horsey item I could ask for, like boots, saddle pads, bits, breeches, gloves....all of my "needs."
So, to answer your question, almost all of my relatives make an effort. If not physically, the definitely emotionally or financially. I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't have such awesome family members. I am very lucky. Posted via Mobile Device
