well I guess im on my own now.. ether I quit or I do this without help.. so even the things I think are going to pull through fall through it seems.. so I wish people wouldnt act like they really want to help.. if they dont.. especially if they know what ive gone through and then do the same thing to me themselves..its real easy apparantly to look good on text and say you want to help someone

Ginger, I'm sorry if I came across that way to you in my post. I really do wish I could be of more help. It rubs me the wrong way when barns have a "weight limit" on the entire barn instead of "weight limits" for individual horses.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

have faith in finding a place to go riding
Here where I am there is no weight limit

and James Arness aka Matt Dillon he rode Buck a Buckskin Quarter Horse he was 15 1

Volunteer! In either rescue or lesson barn. There are plenty of kids volunteering there, but there is never enough man power. You can try to negotiate help for lessons.

I have thought about that actually.. but the lesson barns in my area.. are the ones I dont meet weight limit for anyways.. so I'd have to drive again...lol ( see a pattern here) I dont know of any rescues real close to me either.. there are a few 2-3 hours away in both directions I have seen online always could look into it though.. and with people is it wrong to have a put up or shut up attitude now.. Im thinking on starting that.. because people will say they want to help, or try to schedule something.. then back out on it or cancel on me.. and Im tired of trying to rearrange my schedule for people who don't really plan on doing anything to begin with.. i mean im easy to get along with.. just I hate having to try to work around schedules, or find a babysitter if need be when wife isnt working and im not working and someone can watch kid, and all that just to be cancelled on the day before, because washing their hair is more important than the lesson they scheduled ( not me)
