    I got a Lease horse 50 $ a week cheap... but I ride 3 times a week ( and his a very safe horse who suits, my experience) I don't have a job, but I work my hardest at school I get A pluses allot and im grateful for food on my table. Knowing what its like to be deprived living accommodations and having to use a public bathroom for a long time and not living in a normal house with a father who couldn't feed me good food and some times not much ! I am just so grateful to live in a normal house. Today I worked over 13 hours on one assignment because I want to get a good education, and career if you CARE so much about horses you would work your hardest at SCHOOL and not waste your time looking after a horse you have no experience to handle ( seeing as you have never owned a horse ). Work YOUR HARDEST AT SCHOOl get into an EQUINE INDUSTRY COURSE get a good career or traineeship when you Finish year 12 and start to lease or own than do it your self don't start to be a pauper now, or you wont be able to feed your horse.

    Horses are expensive.
    I work to pay for mine.
    If you want a horse bad enough, you'll need to be responsible.

    I KNOW lots of people would be happy with that, and I WAS. I was thrilled. I planned and looked forward ALL YEAR to that. BUT my love of horses wasn't completely satisfied or content with a bit less than a week of riding time in a year.

    I guess you could say I nagged. If that makes me a bad daughter, I guess I must be horrible! I mean, I could be doing drugs or something, but nope. Obviously I'm horrible enough as it is.



    My parents don't give me everything I want- if they did, oh my, I would have books, electronics, riding clothes, GALORE. Galore, I say. However, they picked what I like the most- riding- and pay for that and what is necessary, such as food, clothes, etc. Very little else.

    Well, off to be a horrible daughter!
    I sold my horse a year ago, and it was a horse I never asked for. She was a gift when my parents felt they had the money, and time. They knew I wanted one, but I never really asked. Last year we built a house, and we ran out if money, ao I sold her.

    I've been on a horse 4 rimes this year for a 30while minute lesson a barn I hate, but it was cheap. We eventualy ran out if money again.

    Now I have graduated, got a job, and saving for my own horse again. I know how hard it is ehen that's all you live, and breath, but no means no and that's the end of it. I don't go to the movies, I don't go out and hang with friends, I sit at home and do research on horses.

    I understand the big work and effort into bringing a horse into the family and paying for board, feed, and vet/farrier bills.
    I'm far too young to work and have a job, so please don't tell me to get a job and work as much as I can.
    I'm trying to find very good ways to convince my parents within a year.
    I would love to have a horse because it would be a wonderful experience and filled with joy.
    It would teach me tons of responsibility also.
    It's just my parents think I'm being ungrateful for what I have. They pay money for my riding lessons and I thank them every day for that and try to work as hard as I can when they ask me to do chores.
    They say that I'm very ungrateful for wanting a horse.
    I love my parents but need huge help on how to convince them or at least make them think about getting a horse.
    I'm willing to work but the problem is is that I don't want to walk dogs or clean people's yards unless I know them, and I only know 4 houses where I live.

    Thank you so much and I hope I can sometime soon get a horse!
    Have you tried the pouty face & sticking your bottom lip out? How about the "If you loved me, you'd buy me a horse" whilst crying routine? Or my personal favorite, the silent, broody brat behaviour? When your parents ask what's wrong, you reply "My life is horrible and I feel depressed because I don't have a horse, (insert big SIGH, and a tear or 2). All worked rather successfully for me when I was young.

    All of those would have got me a clip across the ear and no dinner LOL.

    OP, have you asked your parents why they said no? When I was 12 I came into the kitchen one night for a drink of water and found my parents doing the accounts. When I looked at the income and balance lines, I realised just how poor we were and never asked for anything again. I would have realised earlier if I'd known that most kids don't sleep in old sleeping bags on the floor with 3 to a bedroom, most mums don't wash clothes by hand and dad wasn't wearing threadbare clothes by choice... I smartened up real quick, realised my parents were doing the best they could and I decided to study hard and work as soon as I could.
