Husband only wants me to lease and not buy my own horse, advice please
This is my first post on this forum and I am happy to be here!
After many years of taking lessons, researching, obsessing and a lease here and there, I am finally financially secure enough to buy my own horse.
Here's the catch... my husband is not fully on board. Although he is fully supportive of me taking lessons and part leasing (despite his deadly allergy to horses), he thinks it will be too much to take on. He is worried about the time commitment and finances.
I have generalized anxiety disorder and horses seem to be the only therapy that provides 100% relief.
I'm in the mid 30's, have a great full time job, daughter is almost 4 years old and loves horses too, everything is just right! There is a full board barn within a two minute drive from my house with great facilities etc.
I am now starting to really "massage" him into being okay with this. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated, and let me know if I need to provide more information.
