Please help!!

This summer I am going to get a job first off. I know the basics of horse care and have taken lessons. How can I convince my mom to let me lease a horse/pony this summer? I will try to pay for it as long as possible. I am responsible, but I am afraid of asking her. I feel so guilty. Any suggestionson how I can ask? And how can I convince her I can take care of a horse?
PS: I have a friend who has horses and I can ask her for help in caring for one if I need it.
Thanks!

So, here are my suggestions...
by: Mary Ashley

I would just ask her. There's no reason to be guilty! C: And if she says no, try your hardest not to be sad. Be sad later. Because then SHE will feel guilty for saying no and she'll feel sad for that. That's my opinion!

Good luck!

Help
by: Alyssa the horse gentler

I live on a BIG ranch and know a lot about horses. If you are getting a horse take it to a close ranch around your city they know a lot about horses and take the best care of them and they can also help you out with horse facts! About the money I have no idea how to help out in that area! Hope this helps Good luck!

P.S. I train Horses so I know what I'm giving help on! :]

by: Anonymous

i show my mom that i can keep my grades up and do my chores. take care of my lizard, my three fishes and work with horses all the time. i also babysit and do stuff without her asking and most importantly... i listen.

I think you have got yourself into a bit of a muddle!! The way i started leasing my pony is i talked to my mum by just starting off by talking about PONIES PONIES PONIES!! It will be hard but soon you will get one! After this actually pluck up the courage to ask after all she is your mum!!!

just say it.
by: ponygurlcc =)

I think its rly gr8 that ur considering this. having a horse is so much fun. My suggestion? show ur mom how responsible u r with horses, by taking her 2 ur riding, & showing her all the aspects of horsemanship. & make sure 2 tell her lots of facts. This will make her feel rly involved, which ALL parents lyk! lol! After that, just come right out & ask her. If she rly feels ur ready & responsible, there is no way she will say no. also, she will appreciate ur honesty. GUD LUCK!!!!
