With my mom and I money is an issue. She wants me to lease a horse over the summer rather than making a commitment to buy. I have been looking at online lease ads and talked to my instructor about leasing the quarter pony she hass that I love.
I need something I am comfortable with so it is probably best that I stop looking elsewhere, cut my loses and take the pony. (I was looking at a throughbred, I really want it.. but its just not realistic) however the pony is going to have costs too.
I WANT to and NEED to lease a horse for the summer but my mom has NO way of helping me financially! I don't have a secure job yet because the market sucks. Even if its a free lease (the thoroughbred I mentioned was free) theres still board and other fees. I think im just mad at my mom because she doesnt understand... we need money for this. I just don't know what to do. Even if some kind of option came up I still think it would be out of price range, where I ride at now is way too expensive. Id have to change barns and would have no way to transport a horse.
I think I should just face the fact that im never going to get a horse, be it quarter pony or thoroughbred.
The board costs money, lease usually costs money, though there are exceptions... and theres just not enough of it to go around.
