To good to be true

Okay my life is taking an amazing turn and I'm afraid its true. It all seems to good to be real. I'm 16 years old and in grade 11. A month ago {sept.6} I got a new mare. A 16.3 hh, Canadian Warmblood mare out of Gervantus II. 6 years old and has had 3 months. I've been working with her for the past month and its going AMAZING!!! We've started jumping and its heaven! And the good part is...I only pay half of board. $150 a month and I do whatever I want with her. They cover worming, farrier, and blankets etc.

And then next good news! I'm now being paid to ride a horse! A girl at my barn does not have time for her TB and he needs work and so I let her know I'd be willing to ride for a little bit of cash, as I'd like the experiance and need the money. I think it'll be 10-15 bucks a ride depending on what I'm expected to teach him. If he has a ****ty attitude as a horse in general i'm raising it to 15-20 though. I'm so excited!!!

That sounds good!! Is the mare yours, or are you leasing her?
