Good luck. I was 32 and beyond independent (financially or otherwise) from my folks... and they STILL complained and got upset about me buying a horse. They just didn't feel horses were safe... both had had bad experiences/falls and just didn't agree with horses in general.

ROFL I was almost 50 when I got my first horse and I thought my dad was going to have a coronary! Did I ever get an earful about what a stupid, irresponsible, idiotic move I had made! I had postponed my dreams for years...college, marriage, raising kids, educating kids....and finally, when my father became terminally ill, I listened to him talking about everything he had wanted to do and didn't do. I decided right then that I was NOT going to be like my Dad! It took me awhile, but I bought a horse and I've never looked back. And I created a monster by draggin my husband into the world of horses with me. He's more addicted than I am!!

You have to live the life you love. You only get one.

My first horse was actually a surprise from my mom. She had plans to sell him for more money, but my love towards that horse showed her I more than responsible enough to own one. I've got two now, looking for another as we speak. I wish you all the luck in the world!
