    Are you saying that your first horse is going to be a wild mustang? If so, I think you are making a huge mistake.

    How much experience do you have training and caring for horses? I agree with Alex. If this is your first horse, the last thing you want to do is get a wild one. And if you're keeping your horse at home, you better know what you're doing. I'm assuming you won't have much guidance, like you would if you were in a boarding situation. You'll have to get a vet and farrier set up before you bring the horse home, and you'll need to know what and how much to feed, how to treat minor injuries, spot lameness and know how to address it, how to maintain the property, etc. Don't expect your parents to do any of it. You have to go out and take care of your horse, rain, sleet, or snow. All day, every day. Another thing you'll want to look into is insurance. In my area, we're required by law to have liability insurance for the horses.

    No one is trying to discourage you from eventually getting your own horse, but we want you to know exactly what you're getting into. It is extremely rewarding as long as you're dedicated.

    I've worked on a ranch training horses since I was 11. I don't burden my dad I don't ask him for a single thing except to have an open mind about this. Obviously I can't force him into it it's his house. He's coming around.
