Fourteen isn't necessarily 'baby', I know a few fourteen-year-olds that are in college right now, so age has nothing to do with the fact that she doesn't undertsand she can't buy a horse out of her price range that she doesn't even know where it's at and probably isn't even for sale.

14 in college?? wow..

I'd just be like do you have 4k?? maybe you could look for a nice cheap lesson pony for her, of course if her parents want her to have a horse that is.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

My parents both kinda pushed both my horses on me :) I wanted a trained hunter or jumper. But instead we got a ex-racehorse that had to be re-trained and STILL isn't trained very well but we're working on it! :)

And when we were looking for a horse for my sister we went to see Ducky, and well.. Nicki (sister) Didn't really like him and didn't want to buy him but of course my dad liked him and so did I so we got him... even though Nicki had given him up to me she still calls him "Her horse" when I do all the barn work and spend MY money on them.

I'd be totally mean and and just keep her going "Yeah...still looking, can't find anything" and if she got REALLY annoying I might be even meaner...though I'm sure you don't really want to know just how mean I can get -chuckles-

I have a friend (only one really, and she's off to korea for a year on monday x.x) who basically 'used' me to give her FREE I can really feel the whole 'using' you for your horse thing. I wouldn't have minded except even after 2 months of one lesson a week I still had to tell her how to mount, not to let the horse eat while working (in halter, in bridal, under saddle) and honestly won't ever do that again. If a friend wants to ride my horse, then they better know how to ride, or pay me to take a lesson since while I'm on the ground, I'm clearly not on my horse, and my time is precious lol....

You can also 'milk' her a bit and offer her ONE day around the horse after a week or so of chores.

Again....I don't 'always' take the high road -shrugs-

Where does this kid come from? How did she end up on your doorstep. Flat out tell her that there are things she won't understand about money until she goes out and has to figure out how to make her own way in the world. Also tell her that you are sorry she lost her horse friend but you can't buy up horses just because her heart is broken. You can afford one horse. You are not a charity. I have children come over and try to get me to 'give them' my horses all of the time. 'But she's my dream horse'and the answer is a firm 'No'. If 'no' doesn't work firmly say 'It is not going to happen child , this is the end of the subject'. She isn't going to get it until she is much older. The only thing you can do is end the subject and not let her bring it up again.
