Riding Teacher's Advice

posted by AmberRose- Girl With a Dream on , , , , , , , , , ,


While I was up at the stables yesterday, I decided that I would ask my riding teacher her opinion of the car verse horse situation. She agreed with my dad for a few different reasons and here they are: 
  1. If I don't have a car how can I get to my horse, I would constantly be relying on other people to take me there (as there isn't a bus root from mine to West Hallam), so if Mum OR Dad couldn't take me then I wouldn't be able to get up! :( 
  2. I'm going to University this September and am going to be doing a foundation year and then a three year photography course, so whilst I would have ALL summer, time would be come pretty tight after this and the horse wouldn't get the attention that they truly deserve, and that's not fair at all on the horse. 
  3. At the moment in time my stomach is in a good place, it's not hurting as much, I'm not on as many tablets and it's making it so that I am really able to concentrate on working hard, BUT I can't guarantee that my stomach's going to stay like this, it's only recently that it's settled down and before I get a horse I need to know that it is going to stay calm and at a minimal amount of pain! 
I completely agree with EVERYTHING that Fiona, Elaine, and my Mum and Dad have said and like Fiona said 'it's hard and horrible to be sensible sometimes but it's for the best in the long run', and I still have Gatsby that I can ride whenever I want to and that I am going to be doing pony club with. So I am never going to be short of a horse to ride, so with all these things in mind I have decided that the car will come first and the dog later.

Today after getting back from my sisters I've spent looking at different Mini's ideally I want a manual Mini One either Petrol or Diesel but Petrol is cheaper, and it would be a 2007 reg. Based on these facts I went online and looked at comparethemarket.com and looked at different prices for insurance, firstly I did it all in my name as a learner driver with no second driver, it came out as costing £989.10 which is a lot cheaper than the first figure that I got. I then thought I would look at what it would cost to do it using my Mum as well so that she was a driver on it and this changed it to being £1300 roughly, can't remember the exact figure, but my mum's insurance allows her to drive another persons car with their permission. So she's said that I wouldn't need her as a named driver on my insurance. 

Tomorrow is my own a pony day and I will also spend time telling you about my nan who's had a bad fall recently, but that's going to be a post that will take a lot longer to write.

I'll tell you more tomorrow. 
Until Next Time
