Realistically, it involves sacrifices. Unless both you and your hubby are making six figure amounts, being able to afford the best coach along with the best barn isn't realistic along with a mortgage, car payments and potentially children.

If you're deadset on having horses, your best bet is to buckle down and buy yourself some land. Instead of throwing hundreds upon hundreds of dollars away every month for the fancy barn and the coach, get your own setup and keep your horses at home. It's a lot more work and probably a lot less comfortable, but it's part of the sacrifices that have to be made when you want everything without having to give anything up.

And in my opinion, there is NOTHING better for kids then growing up on a farm anyway and learning how to clean up all varities of animal poop at a young age! It prepares them better for life, and farm kids have a mentality 10x better then city kids, especially these days. I don't even intend on having children, but let me tell you, if I did, I would REFUSE to raise them in a city setting.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
