So I am possibly getting a working student (more groom in training) position under a really good hunter/jumper trainer. I need some way to convince my dad that the drive is worth it though. It is going to be about a 30-40 minute drive from his house. I would be going out 3-4 times a week, working 6 hours a day. I would be working under two different trainers and would be able to ride a lot of different horses. It would be a dream come true (I was running around the house jumping up and down when I found out about it).
I would finally get the chance to become the rider I KNOW I am. I really want to do this.... I just don't know how to convince my dad. I am 15 and a half and will be getting my license asap (and a job). He would only have to get me there for the next four or five months and then I could take myself.
Here are some pictures of Lisa at Thermal (2011). :)
I REALLY want this.... Any tips on how to convince him?
Sorry for harassing you guys for advice so much recently.... I just don't really have any other adults (or other people besides my two best friends) to get input/feedback from. "/
