Summer time is best for showing if you're in school.

I agree with Tim. If you don't have time now, try waiting for the summer.
It also depends on how much spare time you have.
I have school, work (Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat), and I have a horse to take care of. It isn't easy, before I even decided to buy a horse I had to see if I actually had enough time to dedicate to the horse.

I'm facing the same stuff.... except I don't have a job because the price of gas would cancel everything out...... Summer is a good thing because you have more time.... maybe see if this summer you can work later shifts or something so you have more time.... I also learned that being friends w/ co-workers is good because then you can have them fill in for you :P sorry, I don't think that was very helpful.....

It sounds to me like you answered your own question.

At this point your education should be your focus. Horses will always be there where as if you don't go to school now, you will not be able to eventually work doing what it is you want to do and afford horses.

I would encourage focusing on school and focus on showing with or without your own horse for a later time. At that point I'm sure you will be able to work something out.

Do they have a 4H group for horses at your school? If they do you should join whether you own a horse or not. Its a good place to learn horse stuff and they always need help with shows. You could get some idea what it takes and make some horsey friends. In the summers you could find a stable or just someone in your area with a lot of horses to work for. I know if a teenager stopped by my house and asked if she/he could scoop poop for horse time I would concider it.

Hmm well I think all my school had was FFA classes, but I don't think they have any 4-h for horses. I think in the summer time I will try and find a stable I can work for or somethin

Hmm, i've considered joining FFA to compete in the Horse competitions...... some of the people competing in it from my school haven't even rode a horse :roll: I'm pretty sure Oklahoma has 4-H, but it's not a school thing.... I'd take a trip to your county's courthouse, they have a 4H extension office and will tell you all you need and want to know
