Angry What's Your Opinion?

I have been in Ponyclub for 3 years now. We have an instructor coming out once a week for six jumping lessons normally.

This year we still got those 6 lessons but now they are only inside jumping lessons. Our club leader managed to get her for 2 more weeks for X-country lessons but we have to pay for those.

I cannot afford those lessons and therefore will not have any tips on how to improve my X-country for testing day.

Does it seem fair that only the kids with money get this advantage and everyone else will just have to bum it out????

You're still getting your 6 lessons, but the additional ones aren't free. How is that not fair?

Additional things cost extra. It's not like they're suddenly charging for the regular lessons.

The instructor is charging for her time, and to defray that cost your club leader needs the money from the students who can afford to pay for them. It's as simple as that.

Maybe your club doesn't have the funds for those extra lessons. And yet had the chance to get them. Id think its fair since the trainer cant give free lessons.

From east to west a travlin gypsy found her prancing pony for now their hearts run as one...into the north

Well, it sounds like they can't afford to now.

It stinks that you cannot afford the lesson, but I don't think it's unfair.

I think what would be unfair is keeping those who can afford to pay from having the lessons just because some kids can't afford them.

And now they can't - or are choosing not to, either way, not unfair.
