I am 14 years old and i want a horse, but my parents say that i will have to pay for it myself. I have been taking riding lessons for 7 years now and for the past couple years have been helping to train horses. I live in a small town and my parents have never owned horses and nobody else in my family is very interested in them. I do not have any land to keep it on, or a shelter etc. I have enough money for the horse and i have aboult half of the equipment that i will need. So far i am getting money from babysitting every now and then, $10 for each aced spelling test, and a good amount of money for a good report card. My instructer wants me to work for her next summer when i can drive. but i still need to find other ways to make a good amount of money. I will want to have about 20,000 b4 i can start the horse buying process. My parents might help with the feeding when i get my horse but not much. PLEASE HELP!!!!! i want a horse soo badly that i am willing to do ANYTHING!!!!! this is not a phase i have been riding for seven years and i am getting very serious about rodeo, and horses and rodeo have gotten into my blood!!!!!!!
