I'm sorry don't think I'm doing this right! anyway
my dad lost his job about two years ago, and now we're living of benefits. I think I should give up riding to save money, but I really don't want to. I know it sounds selfish, I'm the eldest of four and I should be trying to help, but horse riding right now is the only thing that makes me happy! I HATE my school I have no friends and there's not much to do where I live.
I really want to be an eventer. I've been riding since I was three and I'm now thirteen. if I stop riding it could be a major setback! I'm already riding with fifteen year olds, and if I stop it will give a chance for other children my age to catch up, and its the fact that my riding teacher thinks I'm good enough to ride with fifteen year olds that drives me to do better and gives me that competitive edge. if I stop for a while and have to be in lessons with children my own age I think I might lose my drive and competitive edge! what should I do?
