Please Help I Don't Know What To Do!?!?!

I have started horse showing and i had two ponies but now i only have one, but that isn't the problem. My 11.2hh welsh A mare is going threw the process of being sold, so i am left with my stocky weight carrying 10.3 & 1/2 hh shetland x new forest gelding. The reason i was selling my mare was because she was no longer able to carry me and i needed a bigger show / riding pony, i would use the money from her to get my next pony. My mum and dad said that this was ok for me to do and i would be able to choose the pony that i felt confortable on and preferably a show pony. But then as soon as my little mare went it has all changed - I am not allowed another show pony because "I can't handle it" says my dad! That's the thing i found it easy riding two yes three is when i start to struggle but two i find easy, in case one goes lame i have the other to ride at home or at a show!

I don't know what to do or say to my parents. The thing is they have said i have to sell my little mare for a new bigger pony and then as soon as she is sold they say i can't get another one! I might aswell just get my little mare back!!

 

Can someone please help!!??

that seems really unfair because it sounds like they have gone back on their word; it almost seems as if they've tricked you and i would try and point that out to them!!   if i were you i would speak to your parents and try and have a  discussion with them  as to exactly why you "can't handle it" do you think he is perhaps worried your school work will suffer? i reckon thats probably what most parents concern would be. or maybe its another reason entirely such as they cant afford 2 ponies anymore for example.

If I were you I would keep calm and ask them why the situation has changed. Perhaps there are financial constraints you are not aware of. I hoep the situation gets sorted soon for you.

I hope there is nothing else going on that you are unaware of between your parent, besides the money.

It might not be the money for the pony in the first place but the up keep costs, they might currently be struggling to pay for two.

Just chat to them and ask them what has changed. Good luck.

O would sit down eith them and have a talk to find out why they have changed their mind about it. Perhaps as the others have said the financial side of keeping 2 ponies is too much for them at the moment, after all everyone is struggling financially now.

Why not ask for one on full loan suggest that with your parents and see what they say. Worth seeing if you can find one and see how you get on with something bigger.
