My Horse Crazy Adventures!!!!!!!!

I love Breyer. No, I don't love, I ADORE Breyer horses. I want to go to Breyerfest, SOOOOOO BBAAADDD, but my dad won't take me. He says that for me, mom, and him, it would cost 1,500 just to get to Kentucky, where breyerfest is.

Honestly, I have two, maybe three traditionals, and maybe five classics. I have like, none, because I'm eleven and breyers are expensive. So I'm begging him and begging him, and begged him some more. So he finally said yes. And I said really, and he said no. So yeah.

But then he said "You don't know how much I WANT to give you a horse, you don't know how much I WANT to let you board it where you want, You don't know how much I WANT to let you show and stuff, You also don't know how much I WANT to take you to Breyerfest, The problem is, I CANT! I would LOVE to, but I CANT! I'm really sorry honey."

So then I went upstairs, and went on the breyer site. I saw that you could send pictures of your entry through via email!!! Problem. I have no tack, i have barely any horses, and i have no riders. I have one Paradise rider, but that's like betrayal to use it in a breyer event. So now im stuck with staying at home all weekend watching tv while every other horse lover is at breyerfest having the time of their lives.

I just want to be around horses. I cry at night, that's how much i love them and can't be around them, like EVER! I can't do anything that involves horses, because I'm POOR!!!!! i JUST WANT TO BE AROUND HORSES!!!! my dad gave me the option of breyerfest, or no internet, cable, or telephone for a month, and i honestly said breyerfest. I'm not afraid to give up my tv or phone or computer for horses. I never felt this way before. I feel like i'm enclosed in a bubble by everyone around me. I feel like i have no fun. I have no friends at school, i'd rather spend all my time in the barn.

I don't care if i miss all these cool things like field trips or park day, track and field day! I just wasn tto be around horses! I want my life to revolve around horses!!! i DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE FEELS THIS WAY, BUT PLEASE!!! leave a comment, I want someone to know how i feel. Someone that, knows how, i feel..... :)

I can't explain it. Please! Someone please tell me if they feel this way!!! I don't want to be alone anymore! i DON'T care if i'm an outcast, i have horses. Please tell me if you feel the same way as i do.

Me Too

I really want to go to Breyerfest it's my dream too. I do own a pony but she is a little bit naughty. I really want to go there, I live in the UK and it's so far to go for 3-4 days. Why are the tickets so expensive? Why can't they do one in the UK even just for 1 year? They are so expensive. Imagine really nice English horses there if it was in the UK. Velegro:) I think they should do one in the UK and the U.S.

I Know
by: HorseLuver 12

I know how you feel or at least I did. I live with my grandparents now and they have 2 horses. One of them I ride about 3 times a week all by myself. I have lessons once a week also, but when I lived with my mom all I ever wanted was to be around horses and to go to Breyerfest. I still want to go to Breyerfest this year, but I can't. I am going to ask for it for my birthday. I really do know how you feel. Good luck. Don't worry, if you persevere and be patient you may be able to go in a year or so. Just save up your money and be cautious about when or what you spend it on. Don't worry you'll get there! ☺

I feel the same. But I do have a 2nd cousin who has an old mare and we trot and canter her for a day or 2 in the summer holidays. I'm going pony club after my birthday. We're poor too, my parents are separated and we live in London where everything is expensive. Maybe do like a stall outside your house selling cakes and drinks. You can make like £18 a day (once I made £88 for charity), but that can buy you a riding lesson. Maybe after your lesson ask a nice girl there if you can help out and sometimes they pay you, but I do it for free. I knew and know exactly how you feel. I need a horse so bad, it hurts and I cry. But just keep fighting!

Mini horses

mini horses are great compromises for big horses. I'm 15 and i work with mini horses. I prefer them to big horses only because i like combined driving with them.

me again !!!! :D

Hiya, it's me again.
I have restrictions to how long I spend on the computer ( another sacrifice ) so I couldn't finish my last message. Do you go on this website lots? I obviously can't give you my email address or phone number but I wondered if you would like to stay in touch via this website since it is safe. Like I said I ADORE horses. Last night I thought of some more ways for you to spend more time with horses.I am trying them myself !
1) Do any of your friends or family own horses? If so then offer to muck out... For me, even spending time with horses is great. If you are super polite and give the owner loads of compliments then they might let you groom ,or maybe even RIDE , the horse.I did this with one of my dad's friend's girlfriend's horse and I helped out so much that they let me ride and groom the 16.2 hands horse !!!!!!

2) Learn more. Learn as much as you can about horses. Watch saddle club, read horsey books etc.
Even seeing photos of horses makes me happy !

3) turn exercise into fun. Try and find some horses in fields that are near you. Then tell your parents that you want to be healthy and walk to the horses as often as you can.

I'm 11 by the way :D
I live in the UK. Hope you want to chat using this website ( just leave comments and I will reply)
BYE !!!
love horses,
ME !!!

I feel the same way about horses too because my family are not rich I cannot afford to ride lots. I have a riding lesson every two weeks but I have had to make loads of sacrifices. I get less money than my friends have had to pay for all my riding clothes and lots more. Luckily, I found some ways to be with horses more
1) Every morning before school my mum drops me off at a field of horses and after half an hour I walk to school
2)Do a talk about horses for your parents or school. this impressed my parents
3) don't beg. this just makes people angry
4) Make sacrifices.
hope this helps!

I LOVE BREYER!!!!
by: horsecrazy767

I do know what you feel like! I've also NEVER been to Breyerfest. I do ride but I do know how you feel! I love horses sooooooo much! I took a break from riding to do gymnastics and I missed the horses so much. Don't give up! =)

Hey
by: RidingLover7

Yeah I totally feel the same way. It's really hard not to be around something you love ESPECIALLY when it is beautiful amazing horses. I am fortunate enough to be able to ride twice a week. But over the summers when I don't get to ride at all I feel exactly how you do. Breyers is a great way to get your horse fix, but if you have barns nearby they might let you do chores there in exchange for lessons! You should ask around. :D good luck.
