You sound just like me when I was 16. I couldn't find a job until I was almost 17, and even then I made minimum wage (which isn't much). And I remember I always wanted to go to the barn to watch and learn from the trainers, but I had no car! Sure my dad would drive me to the barn every now and again but normally they just got home late from work and didn't want to do anything. I can't imagine life without having a car now, but when I was younger you couldn't do anything without one.. and had to depend on your parents for everything.I......LOVE YOU!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!! I am only 16 and jobless. I would rather have a horse instead of a trainer and NO $$ to afford the horse lol:lol:
If you can, see if you can find a local trainer to watch for free I always was so envious of the girls (more like their parents) who could afford to board, train, and have everything. I had to work for everything and I wouldn't take it back for the world! That's what made me who I am today, and someday you will look back and say the same thing. I lived alone with my father and he was a construction worker, and we could afford to keep our two horses but not get one trained at the same time. I love my dad, he's the one who kept me interested in horses and taught me the value of a dollar.
I work at a barn now and I got offered to train/board my horse instead of getting paid (which sucks because now I will have to pick up a second job) but it's worth it.
