-sigh- My dad is this way. But what does he waste his money on? Dunkn Donuts coffee when he has a perfectly good carafe in the kitchen, and cigarettes that cost like 6.00 a pack. And he actually told me to sell Ice for dog food?!?!

At least my hobby gets me out of the house, and I get to tone my arms up a bit and improve my posture!

Ahh really? When she brings you over today, if she stays and talks again, I'll tell my mom to lure her to the back deck to sit and talk so she can see us jump him haha! BTW my sister thinks we're bluffing that we jumped him that high. Jealousy that she can't ride him and get cooperation? I think so lol!

Your mother's view is pretty common in non-horse people. My riding instructor paid off her $15,000 Hunter/Jumper all by herself at age 17 (I believe she worked for the person she bought the horse from) because her parents wouldn't support her and thought it was a waste of money. Of course, her parents had no idea how much the horse cost. But that's not the point...

Anyway, when you're on your own and make your own money, you can spend it on whatever you want. But for now you have to respect your mom's decisions, as much as it might suck. There's really nothing you can do if she's so against the whole horse thing.

Horse back riding is an expensive sport and it is sad when your mother doesn't like you riding when you love what you are doing
