I'm sure there have been other threads on this, but I figured I'd ask others what their experiences were with owning a horse in high school.
Why I'm asking? My dad (and my mom, although my dad and I bear most financial responsibility) has finally agreed to a horse and we're going to check one out on this coming Sunday. I'm really excited, but my mom is worried about the time factor.
This coming school year (grade 11), I'll be taking a total of three science courses and two math courses throughout the year.. which I don't believe will be too time consuming as long as I remain consistent in my work and studying. My mom however, is thinking I won't have enough time. I know that I'd likely make it work, because I want it enough to put in the effort.. but I just want to hear some of your experiences.
