Pretty much the title. A few things. 1. I take lessons 3 days a week. 2. I've taken lessons for 3.5 years. 3. I already know what horse I want to lease 4. I am unable to work at the barn I ride and get payed, b/c most people that ride there muck stalls, feed horses, and do other barn chores without being paid. 5. I'm an only child and horse riding is my only sport/event. What can I do? My parents know its not a phase, it's just convincing them.
