    And yeah, I agree with you, unfortunately no gymkhanas or western in my area just eventing, show jumpers, equitation and fox hunting. I should probably just take a break from routine. :)

    Why are you moping?!

    Maybe you should consider just how lucky you are before you get all down and stuff. There is nothing wrong with this picture. I'd be over the moon if I had what you had.

    Now if you are that 'bored' with doing 'grid work and flower boxes for the past five months' then maybe you should ask your instructor if you can do something different? Maybe take your horse to a show and do some gymkhana or something silly to let loose. Or to challenge you.

    Stop thinking "poor me" because that will get you and your horse nowhere.
    Don't get all condescending with me. If you were in my situation you may feel the same way.

    Hahaha... oh you have no idea.

    I have a horse in Maryland, USA.
    I live in New Zealand.
    I ride once a week for 45 minutes.
    I work fulltime. And do online college fulltime.

    I am currently taking care of a horse.
    They have no riding arenas or covered arenas.
    I can only get there after work if I leave a bit early
    It is pitch black when I get there
    I can't ride her yet because she hurt her leg.


    I think if I had your situation, I'd be over the FREAKING moon.

    Like I said, you are being very ungrateful.

    Then do so. Maybe you will come back to riding some day. Maybe not. Life is full of odd twists and turns. Accept them and keep moving.

    Sometimes you regret things, sometimes not....just a part of life. Try and learn for next time and keep living!

    Sky, she is not you. Just because horses comes easier to her doesn't make what she's feeling any different. Do you remember 13? It's a confusing enough age without being judged by people a half a world away. She sounds like she has a good head on her shoulders. I don't hear 'ungrateful'. I hear missing having that team experience which is important at her age. Hopefully she will trust her gut and do what she feels is right for her.

    Don't act so ungrateful!. You truly have no idea how luck you are. Most kids only dream of riding a horse once let alone own there own horse. Maybe you should shake up the routine as opposed to moping around!

    I have 2 horses. And sometimes I get bored because I have no one to ride with. YES that does get boring. BUT I would never give up on riding completely.. because people make fun of me for doing it!? Im 16 now.. just saying.. Umm.. what else.. Yes I think maybe you are getting bored. Missing the being with people communication part of the teen years.. I get none of that now. I wouldnt trade getting to see my friends and my horse. I would chose my horse. We all have decisions though. I guess you just have to get your PRIORITIES straight.. or take a break.. KINDA.. just don't ride AS MUCH.. maybe.. but don't give up... hope that helped.. or atleast made sence:) haha

    Hey there(: I rode from ages 5 to 13, and then quit because I was bored. I rode english and western, showed and all, but I lost my feeling for it.
    Now, I started up again a year later, and it's even more fun than before. I have my own horse and it's a wonderful thing. It's been almost 5 years that I've been back riding, I almost regret quitting, but at the same time, I think it was good to wait. I have a wonderful horse, and probably would have passed her by if I had kept on riding.

    When I was around 9-13 I did tons of sports on top of horseback riding: gymnastics, soccer, cheer-leading, basketball, volley ball, and field hockey. You can totally try doing other sports while staying involved with horses.
    If you're hesitant about quitting riding, why not try a sport along with riding?

    (gymnastics is awesome to combine with riding because..
    A- improves balance
    B- builds muscle
    C- more flexibility and control
    D- you could learn vaulting if you find that you REALLY like it.

    Good luck(:
