i asked constantly since i was 6 or 7 years old and when i became 18, my parents gave up on not letting me have one and let me buy one as long as i pay for it completely myself

My mom has always loved horses since she was a kid (she always had horses), when she thought i was ready after taking lessons for two or three years and riding for five years. she convinced my dad it wasnt a phase. and me begging everyday and wishing for one everytime i blew out birthday candles helped :D
I actually at one point had a shirt that said: daddy i NEED a pony!

Haha ya, dads think that a lot! after three years of owning a horse, he is now convinced its not a phase. I think me biking down the the barn in -9 in sleet/snow for almost a week without complaint sorta made him think that i was dedicated. lol :lol:

I've never had to ask. I had my first pony waiting on me when I was born LOL Born and raised on a ranch/farm so I have never been horse poor (well except for the fact they take all my money lol). :)

You will never believe my story. It was actually my parents idea that I buy my first horse. No convincing involved! I was really wanting to get back into horseback riding, but there were no good lesson barns in the area I had just moved to, only boarding barns. I was all bummed about not being around horses. Then one day my mom just said to me, "Why don't you get a job and just buy your own horse?" and I was like, "You would let me do that?" and she was like, "Sure, why not? As long as you pay for it." And so I did. I got a job, bought my horse, and paid to board it all by myself. I have the best most supportive parents in the world. Even my papa bear of a Daddy supports me, even after two surgeries to fix the broken arm I got from falling off said horse. I thought for sure he was going to forbid me from ridding forever. But nope, my dad is my biggest fan. I have the best parents.

Some of you are so very lucky.

I never was able to convince my Dad that I needed a pony/horse. When I got my drivers license, I would go to a local riding stable, before anyone else, so the horses were fresh. I did that throughout high school, without fail. Rode some pretty rank horses and some very well trained ones and loved every minute!

After marrying, and started my family, I got back into horses by finally taking formal lessons and learning anything/everything I could.

Then, I leased a couple. Still had the "bug", so finally bought my mare, T, and got her last foal thrown into the deal.

My children both learnt how to ride, my daughter is a beautiful rider. But, neither have stayed with it, so I am pinning my hopes on my granddaughter, Bella!

Just bought her first rocking horse (she's only one) and she actually cried when she was taken off it! Oh, be still my heart! :lol:

I didn't. I just.. bought one haha. I pay for it myself, so they dont have a problem. They know I'm taking responsibility for it.But, ages ago I told them I was going to dye my hair different colors and cover myself with tattoos and piercings if they didn't let me... didn't work since I didn't have the money or a job at the time anyways haha
