Im 16 years of age a senior in high school been riding horses for about 7 years now and I would like to own a horse of my own. Ive been leasing my Barn Owners horse for while and of course I love him to death but hes older (15-17) and I
cant do too much with him without him getting tired easily. But anyways I would like to know how can I
persuade my parents to let me get a horse? The only problem is her board is 500$ and my parents are just in the average money range, and now they are going threw a divorce its a bit tough, in case anything was to happen to the horse or for the vet/farrier fees. My parents WONT let me get a job so I cant help them pay. What do I do?
And Also About my horse being tired easily, every time I go ahead and Canter him, he drops his head
low to where the point it touches the ground and he feels as if he almost trips over his front legs and also
trys but cant buck me off. Others say they dont see anything wrong but when I ride, something feels as if its not
right. Is it just him being lazy or what? Please help.
