    ^Thats what I wanted to do, but I could not afford board for all those months. And vet bills, farrier, ect. I have to pay everything on my own, my parents pay NOTHING what so ever. And I am free leasing Candy because I help out at the barn 3 days a week. Hah

    I know what you mean. When I was looking for a horse to buy, I was doing a trial week with a sale horse. I went up to ride him during my trial period. During that week, a summer horse camp was going on. They were planning on playing horse games. To my complete surprise, they were going to use Timmy (the sale horse).

    I kinda freaked out. I acting nonchalantly, but I REALLY didn't want these kids riding him. Especially since they are inexperienced and he is a baby with hardly any skills. He would have bucked those kids off in a second, just because he wouldn't understand all of the fast paced movements and games in the arena.

    I knew right then and there that I had to buy him and he was mine. Now, Timmy is my horse and I'm very happy about that. Only I get to ride and it's awesome, seeing all of the progress.

    I hope everything works out for you. Good luck hun.

    It's not that simple in most cases.

    A horse costs way more than $500-700. Hay, feed, a place to board, vet bills, etc. are all expenses that sometimes make leasing the best option for a rider.

    I understand how you feel. I took lessons at this one public stable, and I had a favorite pony. I was soo jealous when other kids were riding him because he was "my" pony. That's the beautiful thing about having your own horse. You never have to share him.

    That's a really frustrating situation you're in. It's the owner's right to lease her out to whoever she wants. But I would think the owner would be more inclined to lease her out to you, since you've already established a bond with the horse and you've been working well together. I hope it works out for you.
