Not to be pessimistic but if you're going to ride you will eventually fall. You might want to decide if that is a risk you want to take. Rescue horses are a lot of work and will need lots of training. And if for your health reasons you absolutely cannot fall off then you might want to take up driving verses riding.

I just can't get over the "let you" part. I think you're partner in life should not only support your dreams, but help push towards them. I dream of someday owning my own stable, and my husband practically filled out the college applications for me. Not to mention pay board on my horse and attending 2 out of 3 lessons. He doesn't even ride, and isn't a HUGE fan of horses, yet he knows it's my dream, so he will do anything to help me achieve it. I think you deserve the same.

Hope this doesn't come off rude, honestly just wondering .. what happens if you need to sell said horse one day? Is he against that as well, or?

He might be against it, but a relationship is about compromising. What are things is he unwilling to compromise on?

I read a lot of "I'm going to fix him" in this thread. And if I can't "fix him" I'll just lie to him.

Time to leave him behind. Go find someone you don't feel like you have to retrain. Spend the time training a horse intead :)

This thread, imo, needs to be less about "horsey vs boyfriend" and more about your LIFE. Recognising and NOT compromising your needs is critical. He will have nothing to do with this animal. It's not his neck on the line, and frankly, he should care more about it being yours. Rescue or not, the RIGHT horse is what's critical, NO compromises.

Just... Bogus.

Your last post indicates that there is in this relationship you are unhappy about. You either should move on our have a very serious talk with him.

Baised upon the way he wants to keep animals, I would absolutely NOT consider a lifetime with this person. No pet sitter? Cow in the house? Jumping German Shepard? Dog at the dinner table? No way, Jose!
