Hmm...I think I'll JSUT wait and see how it turns out. I don't really know the horse's character, but since it has such a high price, I think it's quite a beginner-friendly horse. And if the horse does end up "wasted" or badly taken care of, she'll probably get rid of it, she's a person like that.
I'm 13 years old, so I'm only about 1 1/2 years older than that girl
but I've been riding for 7 years, with professional trainers for 5 years. I used to live in Germany, and had those lessons there, at really nice stables
(but most people who meet me never have any idea that im not actually a "true" kiwi) and then I moved to NZ when I was 10, and I'm still looking for the right trainer. But enough about me.
Well, at least sue has the horse ON TRIAL, so if they just don't work out, she can still give it back. And if she does get it and something goes very wrong, there's still someone called "My Dad" ready to take it on
I'll keep you updated, the horse will arrive in a few days.
Oh, Btw, the lady she will keep the horse with will not feed it for her. So she will probably have to gain some knowledge about nutrition...
I'll keep you guys updated.
P.S: I do sound incredibly jealous and childish....but ugh...I'm just saying that she isn't exactly ready for an own horse. And one thing....she doesn't even truly LOVE horses, she just suddenly gained minor interest in horses since she met my sister and heard about me getting a horse. When she found out I got Luca, she went on a frantic hunt for a horse of her own. The entire lesson I've seen her do when I went there with my sis, she never showed ANY affection towards the horse she was riding, even after she was done riding. IMHO, the best thing for her would be to lease a horse first, to get the feel of true horsemanship. But hey, it's none of my business, so I'm just gonna sit there and digest all the news about her, ready to give some advice here and there.
