ugh darn bein a teen! lol

So I have been working a 6 yr old quarter horse mare and she's awesome even for being very green. Well the lady is having some problems and is being forced to relist this girl for sale but offered her to me on payments. Well I've been looking for a job for months but in my small town its a challenge if you aren't 18 and my mom isn't open to spending 1500 on a very green 6 yr old even if it is spread out so I had to turn her down :/. But on a cool side note I'm still going to be working and upping her training till she is sold and will recieve 20% of whatever the lady gets which im fine with itll go towards savings for when I graduate. Just a little frustration there being 17 and jobless, besides little baby/ animal/ house sitting jobs here and there.

Thats unfortunate. But I think the majority of us have all been in a similar situation. It sucks being at the young adult stage...

Sucks being a teen eh? I've been in your boat before, totally was not fun. But at least your only one year away from being 18, and I'm sure more job doors will be opened for you. Good luck :).

Yeah I know I'm not in the right place to accept the offer until I get a job so it was the better choice to accept that. Its ok though she offered to let me ride her 4 yr old who her father in law is taking care of for her. Thank you guys lol

Well my mom actually considered the offer but I really had to think that I don't know when I will be getting a job ( hopefully soon though ) due to our small town and lots of places letting people go rather then hiring so I went with what I feel is best and will just work with the 4 year old and if she still has the mare when I get a job ill then talk to her about it.

You are a rare example of young, thoughtful maturity. No wonder the lady trusts you riding her babies.

Thank you guys :). I'd just rather know that I can afford to care for the horse if something comes up than be relying solely on my mom and struggling to afford her if something serious vet wise came up. Ill be riding her till she sells and/ or till the 4 yr old is moved back to her property, I know that's the best option for the mare with me starting my senior year and struggling to find a job it wouldn't be fair to her.

Kudos to you for being responsible about your horses!

I'm in a similar boat, in college without any extra change to spend on a horse of my own. I've been fortunate though in finding people willing to have me work with and ride their horses. It really is good to get the experience riding a variety of different horses too. Plus, my mom actually adopted a mustang colt recently who I've been gentling and training for her.
