Hellllo :)

Hi everyone

I'm from Australia and my daughter has been pining for a horse since she was 6 years old.

She's now 11, and I hope to keep her at bay (note the pun) for another 5 years.

She is doing horse riding lessons and really loves it.

But how can you seriously own a horse when you live in the city ???

Talk to you soon

I lived in Atlanta for years. You just board at a stable. Very simple and easy.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

Funny, I had asked for a horse since I could talk (about 3 years old) and just got a horse in my own name finally (thankfully). On my 16th birthday.

Hi all

Wow what a day - now my SON has joined horse riding, and he is proud of the fact that he was galloping on his first ride.

Fortunately he is 9 and has good balance.

Looks like we'll have to move house in a few years to keep up with their hobbies.

Oh bother ....

Hi brad, in live in Sydneys suburbs and i don't have property i soon found the solution of agistment! There are tonnes of agistmernt places all around Oz so it should be no trouble to get ur kids a horse! lol!

5 years of riding is a LONG time to go without a horse let alone another 5!
My first instructor told my parents theres only so far a kid can go without actually owning a horse and now your son's riding SO even more reason right ! I hope this has helped convince you to buy a horse! Trust me your kids will appreciate it so much!

hi welcome to the forum, i was with out a horse as a child and i never truely got over it, if your child is as keen as you say she is and you feel she is mature enough to take on the responsability of owning a horse, i would consider getting her one it doesent have to be any thing amazing, :)
