I want a horse...

I have wanted a horse like For EVER !!! And I am getting the chance to get one .. I havnt talked to my parents about it yet tho ...

The thing is .. my neighbour is getting a horse and has quite a bit of land which she could keep about 2-3 horses on .. her horse of course will need a paddock mate and as she knows that I wanted a horse she said that we should convince my mum to let me get a horse and keep it their which is awesome cos I cud ride him/her whenever id like !!! It seems great but their is a problem :(

The girl is the same age as me and is really rude. She just brags and lies and brags and lies and it gets me sooo annoyed and one minute she can be ur best friend and the next hate you and start txtn you and calln you and swering at you and just bening mean ...

But I really really want a horse and to keep it there .. what should I do ?? Please help me or just give me some advice

And I am going to talk to my mum and dad about it before I do anything

Good idea tal to your parents about it. Also if she is bein mean, recomend ignoring her. She ever say she is better at something than you? Prove her wrong!!

I respectfully disagree. I do not think it would be a good idea to put your horse in the care of someone who could end up hating you tomorrow. You wouldn't want this girl's attitude toward you to affect the care of your horse. Even if you are right next door and therefore could ensure your horse never went without food etc., horse riding/owning is supposed to be a fun experience, you wouldn't want it tainted by the atmosphere. Also, this would be your first horse, it would be much better for you to keep this horse in a boarding barn at least for the first couple of months to a year so that you can learn from more experienced horse-owners.

I agree with kenda. From the sound of things, it would definitely be better to find somewhere else or wait until this girl gets a clue and grows up. What if you're keeping your horse there and she has one of her little 'fits' and tells you to get your horse off her property? Where will you go? I 'boarded' my horses several years ago in a similar situation, and one day they decided they wanted their pastures back to raise quail in and I had 30 days to move. Trying to find a place that would take a young stallion and a blind senior gelding in rural Indiana while trying to hold down a job with 45+ hours a week was crazy...luckily I found a place literally the day before I had to move. It's bound to be hard knowing it's all within your reach, but it doesn't sound like she's planning on 'growing up' anytime soon...make your choice carefully. Perhaps if you let that particular door close, a better one will open...

Thanks for all your advice :) .. I am still thinking of what is best for me to do ... but thanks again for your advice .. and I will be greatful for any more opinions anyone else has ..

I agree as well ... it doesn't sound like a good situation to me. For me, I would never want to keep my horse at a barn where I didn't feel comfortable or respected. Fortunately, I get along really well with my barn managers and we've become quite close -- I cannot stress how much of an asset this is. If this girl really hates you, she's not going to think too highly of your horse. As Kenda said, owning horses should be fun. Good luck! Perhaps you and your parents can work out other arrangements!

advice?, horse, problem
