I know how is to want a horse , I want one for a lot of time. I'm 21 years old now and still without a horse. And I will not have one soon either. Here in RO if you don't have your own land and barn to keep one is very hard to pay for boarding him. The costs is between 250 - 450 a month and a salary for me (I am about to take my postgraduate diploma) will be 300 - 400 a month. So I will not have money for it, and the horse will need a ferrier, a vet, a saddle and a lot of other things.
So I am volunteering at a horse shelter now and I'm very happy about it because it's my only possibility to be near a horse. I can't ride there to much (I can ride sometimes like 10 - 20 minutes) but I'm happy that I can interact with the horses and care for them.
But I know that someday I will have my own horse and my own farm. I'm thinking to emigrate in the USA and get a job there because here in Romania is a luxury to proper care for a horse.

So you're not the only one that want a horse, you are still lucky because your parents will support you. You will have a horse someday, and I think that you'll not be obliged to wait for him as much as I do. That's why I said that you are lucky.
Good luck girl.

First of all, I would like to applaud you for thinking of more than just the purchase price of a horse in your figuring. Have you discussed a matching fun program with your parents - not even necessarily a dollar-for-dollar agreement -- it is something I do with my children when they have something they want and are willing to work for it but I sense it is a bit out of their reach even with that hard work.
There are a lot of things you can try that would be workable even at your age - things such as doing odd jobs, working around the house for seniors, doing errands for those unable to get out and about themselves, mowing lawns (granted that is summer work) -- think creatively and never miss an opportunity to earn a single dollar as they all add up.

Ah, yes, sounding very much like a 13 year old there (I know, I have one of my own). I would caution the following - this forum is overflowing with knowledge that is there for you to benefit from, however, throwing an adolescent attitude in people's faces is not going to put you in much of a position to benefit from it. And right after I compliment the maturity of your first post.

OH so people with double/triple experience and riding ability and age and maturity dont honestly know what they are talking about?

Please do some growing up.

No use in posting a thread like this, coming to us asking for advice, and when it is not the advice that YOU want to hear, turning around and saying we don't understand. We understand more than what you would think.

So go ahead and buy a horse. But don't bother coming back here asking for help when things don't go your way. Unfortunately the general agreement will be 'I told you so'.

To say none of us "understand" is really silly. We're all here because we love and adore horses, have worked our butts off to have them, et al. You can't assume you have some heretofore unattained love for horses that is so deep that no one else could ever know what you're feeling. There are many of us here who have dreamt of nothing but horses, couldn't have them, and were very unhappy about the fact - heck, when I was five, I used to walk five miles to and from the stables for my weekly lesson! We KNOW what it's like to want a horse more than anything else.

So grow up.
