Unhappy I want a horse so bad!

Oh my gosh! I want to get a pony SOOO bad!!!! It is honestly like painful not to have one. But, I know for the good of my pony, I have to wait. I have to wait until I am more experienced. I am sure you guys have had the feeling the one that you just want one so bad, like you have never wanted anything so much. Can you guys please tell me how good it feels for the wait to be over! Can you tell me how great it feels when you know your ready, and now just need to show your parents everything you know, and just find the right one. And the the day you find it, and your heart melts and you know it's the one. Please just tell me the great feelings so I know it will be worth the wait.

Thanksss,
Ponycrazy

Oh it's worth the wait. =]
I know the feeling you had, I wanted a horse of my own so bad it would break my heart. I never would of imagined meeting the horse of my dreams, one that loves to cuddle and take care of me, our personalities are so similar. It was fate.

I'm glad to hear you are waiting to become more experienced. You are already starting to be a good horse owner! I have seen many horses ruined by people not even knowing how to put a halter on, let alone train a 'baby', or not having the patience to learn.

It's worth the wait, Ponycrazy. I was in my mid 30s before I was ready to buy my first horse and, nearly 30 years latter, I still remember Fagan. I made a lot of mistakes with him - the first being that he was the wrong horse to start with. We used to call him a 5 gaited horse - walk, trot, canter, spook to the right, spook to the left - but I learned a lot from him.

Your time will come, probably sooner then mine did, and it really will be special.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

While you are waiting for your first pone, ride every horse you are allowed to. THIS will put experience and reality on your young butt while on a horse and you will be able to safely enjoy most ways of going on any horse. It will also make you a desireable find for a trainer, a creditable rider for a show team , if you might like to go that route : ).

It is awesome to finally have a horse of your own but as you wait for what you need, think about how well you will be able to care for him/her, how fun your rides will be, and eventually how much "stuff" you have to have! New horses in the yard are always exciting but know that a lot of preparation before they get there makes it work even better. Much for you to do beforehand that can secure that this will be a fabulous adventure for you. Dare to dream, it will take you forward : )

Hang in there, it IS worth it!!

Thanks so much!!!!! It's good to know, and I know I am still very young. Haha :P And I realize how much "stuff" you have to get, haha, like the other day I was looking things up, and my jaw dropped. Haha. It's good to know that it's worth it :).

Thankss,

Okay, this was worded very badly. ;) what I meant to say was that yes, I have been taking lessons for 3 and a half months now, I know that is not that long, but plan to continue lessons for a looooooong time coming. :)

Sorry for the bad grammar before ;),
