You are almost 20 so finding an okay job wont be to hard, I was 13 when I started working and saving so my job choices were slim I ended up filling huge trucks with manure and logging for a some people and working at a friends store. I also took lots of lessons for about a year on ridding and how to care for horses. When I finally had enough experience and money to buy a horse I bought one and had to work 8 hours a week for board and even more for training and lessons. I worked allot so that I could buy a saddle and grain along with other tack. You pretty much just have to work your butt off for a couple years straight! There is no being lazy or wining, no taking a few days off! Horses are a 24 ours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year job! I am now 15 and am running my own stable with my trainer and I work everyday caring for and training horses. Truthfully you just sound winy and lazy. Btw my parents never paid for anything and now I somehow have more money than them which is not much cause horses do not make you rich in any means.
I agree with saying how much work horses are. With horses, your job is truly never done. However, I do not agree with you calling someone names. This is a place for encouragement, not to bring someone down.
