My parents wouldn't let me get a horse (my dad doesn't like horses, my mom is afraid of them) because they thought my Aunt was too financially immature about horses.. Which is true, but it's not just about horses, they are just not good with money. There is a way you can be financially responsible AND have horses though. I've dreamt all my life of finally having my own horse and not taking care of someone else's but honestly, I am waiting two more years until I have everything in order EXACTLY how I want it. I want my barn, fence, tack, grooming supplies, and any other expense that you can have before you get a horse PAID OFF because I get my horse.
Your mom probably has a good reason for how she feels - just show her that you CAN do it and be responsible! Don't just get mad and blow her off; ask her for specific reasons.. You never know, maybe there is a method to her madness.
