I know I might be sounding like a spoilt brat when I say this but the truth is I don't want my brother to start riding. I was talking about it to my mum earlier and she was asking me about lessons - where I go riding. I have hardly ever had a lesson there and she is talking about it straight away!!! I mean to be honest my brother cannot ride. And I know he should have a lesson but I haven had a lesson in about 6 months!!
The other reason is one that is really bugging me. My brother doesn't really like horses, he just wants to ride the 16 handers and go really fast, or that is what it has always sounded like anyway. He asks if he can go riding and my parents don't take long to say yes. I have apparently loved horses all my life and it took me years to convince them to let me ride. I started when I was 8 and am now 14. Now to me that is extremely unfair.
However I don't want to say anything and am just hoping that he gets put off by the fact that he has to grow before he can ride the bigger horses and has to actually learn to ride before he can go galloping off into the sunset or whatever he wants to do.
I guess what I am trying to ask is can any of you relate with other siblings and how do I cope without saying anything that might sound rude or selfish. Although I would prefer not to say anything at all. Thanks in advance!!
