Right now I'm only 15, I can't drive yet and so I'm not looking into buying a horse this year. But I am getting a job making 15-23$ an hour starting in january.
So in my previous threads I stated I may be moving barns with des and blah blah blah. None of that is happening, I'm dropping the coach I have right now and the mother of the girl I lease destiny from will be coaching the two of us for under half price of what my lessons used to be (40$ each going to 15-20$) my mom does pay for my lessons and will continue to do so as long as I wish to take them.
My coach, when she learned I was to no longer take lessons with her, told me it was a stupid idea to stay with destiny when the horses at her new barn were so much better suited for me and could top off jumping much higher than destiny can (she tops 2'f-3' because of something to do with her knees). Right now I don't need to increase the height I'm jumping at, I need to improve my position. And so I told her I'd be staying with des where I am.
My real question is, my position will improve withing the next year (up to when I can start driving myself to the barn) and I may need a horse that can jump higher, the girl I lease des from/ her mom only have 2 horse, one for each of us really.
I was wondering if you guys think it would be smart of me to invest in a horse of my own some time next year? Sorry if I'm confusing!
