Nope. Dad always used to say he'd buy us a little one but it never came to anything.
My eldest sister used to be at a boarding school and she rode with them but I never had any lessons or spent any time around horses, other than when I visited a 'friend' with a pony but even then she wasn't interested in it and wanted to play with dolls (yuk!)
When I was 16 I started going out with a bloke 7yrs older than me :w00t: . He worked at a trout farm and the owner had this horse in his field that nobody did anything with. My bf suggested that I started riding it, so I did!
2yrs later I bought him, then bought a landrover and trailer and took myself off to competitions. Mum used to always love hearing about what I'd been doing but I never got any support from her (mum and dad had divorced by now and dad worked abroad so never saw him).
Even now she absolutely loves hearing about what I've been up to with Splash and loves seeing photos but she's never met him (lives 300miles away!). She keeps saying if she had the money she'd buy me a yard. Oh if only eh?!
Now I've got a bf who is totally uninterested in horses but will come along to take photos, as that is his hobby!
