I want to lease my lesson horse but...

My husband is scared about me being "unsupervised" with a horse. :-/

How do I fight that argument? I was prepared with my argument as to why its better to lease and take lessons 2x a month, instead of taking lessons 2x a week. But his response was that it should depend more on my riding abilities. (Didn't see that coming lol).

He usually watches me ride every few weeks and the last time he saw me was on my first day of English lessons (which was pretty bad). So I'm hoping that if he comes to see me in a few weeks, he'll see improvement. Anyone have a similar experience? Any other suggestions on how I can get him onboard with me leasing?

What's your trainer's opinion of your abilities? If your trainer thinks you're ready, I'd ask her to talk to your hubby. Could be a good arguement from him if he just doesn't want to shell out the money or have you away from home too much, or he could have valid concerns. Have a heart to heart with your trainer about his opinion, and talk to him again. On a side note, my fiance is at the barn with me 3-4 days a week. He's involved, helps take care of Zee and totally supportive of my riding. He's also my photographer! I love the fact that he's so involved and always make sure to include him in decisions. I may not always listen to him, but it makes us feel like this is something we do together. I wouldn't have it any other way!!

Thanks for replying Zimpatico! I'll talk to my trainer again and have hubby talk to her also.

I spoke to her yesterday about the financial and legal side of leasing. But now that I know his concern, I'll talk to her again. My hubby is very supportive but (like my dad) he thinks I'm very fragile. I'm like you where I don't always listen to him (much to his chagrin lol) but I do want his support on this decision
