    That is your prerogative. Are you paying for the horse, or are your parents?

    Suck it up. The majority of horse people don't have horses... that's what your signing up for when you ride horses right? Just remembet, your not the only one feeling this way. You want one? Earn the money yourself.

    Woah woah people, no need to jump to conclusions. OP didn't say her parents were paying for her horse and it's perfectly acceptable to vent your feelings about being unable to find the perfect horse for you. I've seen many members do it- the only difference I noticed between their threads and this is the quality of the post.

    OP, I suggest using full words and checking your spelling and grammar, using full sentences, etc. before posting on the Horse Forum. It is a forum consisting mostly of adults, who don't care for the typical computer language (I do believe there may even be a rule about this issue, but I'm not sure?) It might help the responses you're bound to get.

    I don't think the OP was complaining about not having a horse vs. others who do, or about money. Seems like she is just a bit drained during the search for a horse and feels she doesn't have anyone to talk to. I am sure we've all been there at one point or another.

    OP: it's a long journey, yes, though worth it when it's all said and done. It takes time to find that perfect match.

    I know how restless the search can be. I got rid of my first horse as I needed an easier horse, and after I would spend hours on Dreamhorse and Craigslist looking at horses. After months of not finding any to look at, my neighbor took me to look at this green broke reining/trail horse. He was the most hot, unruly horse while saddling up, and definitely wasn't the prettiest out of the pen of 20 horses. But, I took him home.

    Try looking in the more unlikely places for a horse of what you want :) Originally I wanted a QH and I ended up with an arabian cross. It's a lot easier to be happy with a horse when you aren't shopping for exacts. Heck, when I bought this horse he was going to be a western horse, and 6 years later he is an eventer xD

    Morgananme,
    My advice is to #1) remain patient with the process of finding your horse. #2) always be loving and respectful towards your parents, who may understand far more than you realize and #3) never lose faith in yourself or your dreams

    Below is one of my personal favorite quotations which I thought you might find helpful/amusing.

    Why the serious negativity?
    OP is just discouraged with the search, no one to talk to.


    OP, unfortunately, You have to kiss a lot of toads.
    I am pretty sure most everyone goes on the runaround to find their horse, or the horse walks right up to you and says, "Here I am. Take me home"

    Good luck.
