Focus on where you are going and how to get there.
    The ex trainer isn't a problem anymore. All the stuff with her happened a year ago. I didn't let control me then and she's not going to now! =)

    Oh, and I don't believe for one second that your ex-trainer 'kept' you from showing or was jealous of you and your horse. Again, blaming someone else for your own failings. If you were truly determined to show you'd have made it happen, not expect others to take care of everything for you.

    You always seem to have a 'poor little me' attitude. Nobody owes you anything. If you want something badly enough, you'll make it happen. If that means you have to wait until you're an adult and do all the work yourself, so be it. It'll help you grow up and learn to take responsibilty for your own happiness.
    I don't really know what I wanted people to tell me ok. Igot a little down and out because my cousin who events text me to tell "Guess what I'm going to this big show and I get have former Olyimpic rider as my trainer!" which I think is awesome and I've very happy for her. But when I think about where she is with her riding and where I'm at with my mine. I just get depressed.
    And weather you want to believe it or not the ex trainer did keep me from showing and was Jealous of my horse. She proved more than once she wished Shaggy was hers and not mine. I'm sorry if that's the kind of attitude I came off with I wasn't tying too honestly. I've been jerked around so much in the horse world that sometimes I don't know where to go anymore.

    Find another trainer. Stop whining . How do you plan to pay for the shows?
    Stop expecting to be handed things. That's the problem with most kids today.
    I worked my butt off, cleaning pens, babysitting etc. to PAY for hay , board and my horses.I did not have time or money for lessons. Be glad you have a horse and enjoy what you can .

    You can't have that attitude, where theres a will theres a way, always! It may be a slower process i'm 21 and never been in my first show. Find yourself a good trainer, and work your butt off to get there. That's what I'm doing, and my horse is still 2 years away from being able to show!

    I hauled a boarder/friend's horse to a 3 day show this weekend.
    She packed almost as much as a new Mom.
    It's hot & the AC went out in my truck.
    I missed 2 turns on the way there.
    I had to hit on 2 guys to move mats into the show barn & 2 more to move them back out. (that part really wasn't so bad)
    There was a dog show on the same grounds & that included non-stop barking.
    Dog people were fighting with horse people.
    It cost me almost a half tank of gas & 3 bags of shavings.
    It cost my friend $55 for a stall plus whatever her class fees were. She did win 3 ribbons though her gelding had transformed into a naughty stallion.
    I told her for $20 once a week I would watch her ride & I would give her a ribbon if she promised I could stay home next time.

    Showing is not for me.
    No point to this post but is was nice to vent a bit.

    Shaggy, what are your goals? Define them, write out a realistic list of the things you'll need to do to get there. Put your goals on a time schedule and get to working on them. If you break a big dream down into little steps you'll get there.
