I'm not familiar enough with eventing to know if I'd be interested. I guess I should look into it.

I've been riding for 12 years and have never owned or leased a horse.
It's torture! :'(

@ridingismylife tell me about it! I can't take it any longer! I have only been taking official lessons for 5 years but I have been riding my whole life (horse camps, trail rides ect...). It truely is torture! Getting a horse is like the highest goal for any rider.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I sympathize! I rode for a long time before I somehow convinced my parents to buy me a horse. Hopefully you will be able to buy one soon -- I'll keep my fingers crossed! :)

I've been around horses for years but never owned one. But it's even worse when you can't even find a way to be around them at all. (Work, family, $, whatever.) I think I still have withdrawal symptoms. They include dreaming about movie horses (not the rider just the horse!) and finding Breyer model horses attract one like a comet being pulled into the sun.

I know how you feel, I was 18 when I bought my first horse. My parents refused to buy me one and so I've been working my butt off to afford mine! In the end though, it is completely worth it.

I don't know how I convinced them but I guess finding THE horse helped. Well, honestly there have been three horses in my life who have been "the one". The first two passed away at YOUNG ages in freak accidents, the first was struck by lighting at 5, and the second had a brain aneurysm at 6. I'll never forget them. But than I found my Zu. I got a job, and promised good grades, and he came home, BUT we're only leasing right now. We do intend to buy him at the end, but for now a lease is great. Now months later I no longer have the job (by no fault of my own), but I do have the grades. I wish you all the luck in the world! After 12 or 13 years of riding I finally got a horse. And when it happens it happens. But if I had gotten a horse earlier I wouldn't have found Zeus. So i'm so happy I didn't!

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it
