Well i pay for it all on my own.. my parents would have loved to help but they couldn't afford it. They did pay for one lesson a week when i was growing up and then i worked from the age of 13 on to pay for shows, clothes, boots ect.

I now have a full time job (which 90% of the $ goes for bills, living, student loans, car payment, rent .... you get the point- the rest goes to food, gas and my horse shoes) ... I also teach lessons on the weekends and that pays board and any extra feed I need .. if i don't make enough on lessons we scrimp and scrape from our "real" job $ ... also if i need something i have to save and budget for it ... sucks being an adult!

fortunately me and my husband have good paying jobs and we are able to afford horsey things and other material things if needed! Growing up my parents paid for all my lessons, shows, vet etc.......being an adult is hard especially all the bills that add up but we are managing very well now and are very comfortable.

With money...

No I'm kidding... Well... Unfortunately I'm not allowed by my parents to have a job. Apparently school is my job right now. My dad pretty much buys me anything I need within reason. I don't just go up to him and say "Daddy! I need this new gold encrusted saddle!!!" and he hands me his credit card with a smiling face...

Yeah, I wish. If I need a new girth, I can talk to my dad about it and he'll buy it for me. I have to work it off, though. Same goes with other tack stuff. If it's something that absolutely NECESSARY like kopertox or fly spray, he'll just give me a few dollars so I can go down to Carters or something.

But in the end, it all gets worked off =D

I pay for everything myself. I've never gotten help from my parents minus the purchase price of Samson when I had him but I had to pay that back. If I want a horse, I have to be an adult and pay for it like an adult. :) I'm hoping to eventually get one within the next few months. Lol
It helps i'm getting free riding lessons too.

Oh, I forgot to mention, once I finish drivers ED and get my license, my parents will let me get a job. So, once I get my license, I can drive myself to a job. And then I will start paying my dad either monthly payments or take it all on myself, which he and I both doubt. The one thing I love about my dad is he's willing to help me out... But as said, I STILL have to work everything off my daddy gets me. So it's still a win win.
