Thank you hun, that's what Im trying to do. It would also help as where my mums yard is at the moment is a hour drive each way at the moment so some where closer would be of benifit too. Its just mum refusing me to do anything with my horse no matter how much I talk to her and try to discuss things with her.

Thank you for your reply :)

I fail to see how the horse is yours yet you can't do anything with it. I was 15-16 ish when my mare became mine and I had 100% say in what happened with her. If the horse is legally yours, you do NOT need permission to do anything with it. It's yours, plain and simple.

This - either there is a big piece of the story missing here or you are confusing "don't want to" (for fear of angering your mum, not willing/able to board the horse anywhere else, etc) with "can't"

Yes, if this horse is legally owned by you and your mum is keeping you from moving your horse or riding your horse then it sounds like a legal issue.

If you are working on the side, then you are supposed to declare that income, and your Income Support/Family Support/Credit would be reduced accordingly.

The system is not designed to enable people to afford the luxury of a horse. I'd imagine that if the fraud dept at your local benefits office was aware of your circumstances, they would be eliminating the subsides that the tax paying people are providing for you.

No not jelous of my sister at all, but at the same time she's 18 (classed as a adult) so surely she should pay some of her way at least. We are both my mums daughters yet its one rule for one and not the other that's all Im saying. Not jelous of her at all, Just stating a fact cause If it was someone elses yard they wouldnt be like ''oh your 18 you don't have to pay a penny to have a horse here ect, but cause your 27 you do'' Its kinda like were both keeping our horses there surly there should be the same rule to apply to us both? If you get what I mean :/

Maybe Im not coming across clear enough...

So basically, you can afford the horse because of tax payer provided subsidies, however you are unwilling to pay your mother for the cost of the care for the horse because you are miffed that your sister doesn't pay anything.

Please explain how that makes any bit of sense.


Not only is it morally corrupt to purchase a horse while on benefits, why are you reliant on your mother at 27 years old?

Know what? It doesn't work that way - you can't decide "conversation closed" just because the thread doesn't go your way

Starting a spin off thread based on this thread is probably a pretty ineffective way to end the conversation, btw

So little by little, the truth is coming out. When I first asked about who was actually footing the financial costs for your living expenses, you said you were not receiving any government help. Now you admit you are. So in fact, the taxpayers in England, are actually helping to keep your luxury item - I.e., your horse.

Now I suspect, since the truth (finally) has come out publicly, you have decided to run away and hide. Maybe for fear that the authorities will discover the keeping of a horse on money others pay in their taxes?

We have an enormous number of members here, from the UK. I'm sure they are just thrilled to hear all this.
