  1. Horse Talk
    Long post alert!! I'll try to keep it short as I can, but there's a lot of context needed and I have a habit of rambling... I'm in one hell of a dilemma. My mother in law desperately wants a horse, and I have no idea how to convince her that buying a horse in her position is an overwhelmingly...
  2. Teen Talk
    Hey, I'm new here. Been coming onto this forum for years now, but finally had the guts to sign up.. Haha. Anyway, I'm having some issues, that I think only a horse crazy teen will understand. Otherwise I would ask my real life friends but they know nothing about horses (one thought a bridle...
  3. Teen Talk
    My mother is terrified of letting me ride English. She seems to think that riding western is safer because of the horn, and on an English saddle, there's nothing to hold on to. I know that you are NOT supposed to hold onto the horn as it unbalances your seat, and I tried telling her that riders...
  4. New to Horses
    I really need help, and quickly! My parents are debating whether or not to let me half lease a horse. I really want to, but they are only saying no because they don't want to have to drive up to my stables 3 x a week. It's only about a 10 minute drive, but they are refusing still. I live in...

  7. Teen Talk
    Okay, let me start this out with everybody knowing that I have a very high level of respect for my parents. I am fully aware that they provide me everything I have now, and treat me very well. I am never disrespectful to them, as I firmly believe I am in no place to do so. Thank you. Alright...
  8. Horse Talk
    I'm really emotional right now, and I'm actually crying over this. I've been riding for 4 years now. My parents refused to let me buy my own riding equipment (helmet, boots e.t.c.) until this year and instead made me use the old, stretched, too big and overused boots and helmets at the place...
  9. Horse Talk
    I was wondering how i could convince my parents that I am ready to own a horse. I have been riding, showing, and volunteering with horses for the last several months. Is it too early to ask? Am I ready? I have loved horses ever since i was little. They are my life. Also, I know horses cost a lot...
