Aw, no. It's farther north, about 45 minutes from Barrie, or 2 hours from Toronto if you're more familiar with that.

Too bad. You have nice riding in that area, though.

Just read through your thread and had a random idea.

When I really want something from someone I try and view it from their angle and see what they want. Your dad seems to be pretty into harness horses and seems to like spending money on them... could you find a trail horse that is also broke to harness? Something that would appeal to him and still be of use to you? If you found a horse that he wanted it would take much less convincing to get it.

Just an idea. I hope you get lucky and it all works out

I haven't asked him again, because I don't want to nag. Whenever I hint at it, like: "Well, I wouldn't [have to do that] if I had someone to ride with" and he just tells me to quit whining. =P

I think I am close to you ilyTango. I am in the Kawartha Lakes area. If we are close I would totally ride with you, except I have a foal, so 6 hour trails would be hard on the baby.

Good luck getting your horse!
You can just use search engines and if you see one that interests you, show your parents the page on the internet.

Kawartha Lakes...I've heard of that before. I think it's a couple hours away, though.
