Wow. I found out yesterday that my favourite horse in the world (smertha) passed on. I looked at my username on here and it was Merry

So I would like to say something here Boo 👻. I agree with you while I’m very young and still a child my parents do not agree on getting a horse but it’s always just been fun and entertaining to dream about it and try to find ways to convince them. Sorry not trying to shoot anyone down

No offense but this stuff is all stuff any horse owner should know. I agree with Katie, if your horse gets sick then what are you gonna do? Your horse could die! Please make sure that you are experienced and know what you are doing for yours and the horses safety. Again not trying to be mean or anything or like stop anyone from getting a horse. Honest it’s so much cheaper to lease a horse but if you have to get a horse (I love them so u can’t really be saying anything here ) then make sure you know what your doing.

ok for the 'DO NOT STAND BEHIND A HORSE' thats setting him up to fail. being sneaky and quiet around a horse always makes them more spooky and less likely to trust you. desensitize your horse, you should be able to pat it, touch it anywhere, stand anywhere and that horse should just stand there.

Umm I train and rescue my horses. So I will get them from the auction, kill pen, and mustang makeovers and then Tran them and sell them and it’s not bad... you can get your horse from all 3 of those places....

Ok 10/10 doesn’t mean your ready well done any way, but it’s only an on line quiz, what would you do if your horse had colic and you didn’t know the symptoms or laminitis , then would you know ??)

No offense to the quiz but this is almost all basic knowledge that the average horse person knows this quiz is more like a what do I know about horses not if a rider is ready or experienced enough...

Guys. Imma just say that if you get a 10/10 you won’t be able to convince you parents to buy you a stupid pony!! I honestly don’t get why you parents would think just because passing a little test online would make you suitable to buy a horse.

ok listen so just because you get a ten out of ten does NOT mean you are ready to get a horse there is so much more to owning a horse then whats on this dumb quiz you need to learn alot and get prepared for a horse not just know what they need bu that is important to but like the what should I wear riding question is so weird no one ares what you wear riding.

Just because someone gets 10/10 on this quiz that doesn't mean that They are ready to own a horse this quiz makes no sense to me the cost of keeping a horse is huge vet visits/dental checks/farrier visits/food/tack etc it takes time money and commitment to owning a horse horses have done so much for us so we need to repay our respect but if you understand it all a little begging your parents won't hurt

There is a whole lot more to owning a horse. I don't believe parents that know nothing about the equestrian sides of things who are seeing if they are ready to buy themselves or their kids a horse or pony because there is just so so much more to it, I'm sorry but if they bought a horse or pony just by taking this quiz they would have to sell the horse within a week of having it.

Most of these questions are not related to owning a horse, for example:
Should I wear when riding a RIDING HAT, HI TOP or MY MOST EXPENSIVE JUMPER?
Even a non-equestrian could answer that!?

Does anyone have any ideas on how I call let my parents get me a horse or pony. We have a large back garden so we could build stables and my friend has land and her own horses and says I could keep it there if I got one(her and her Mam) I also go riding and go twice a week to help out and sometimes after school

Getting everything n this quiz correct does NOT mean you are ready to own a horse. You need to know as much as possible about horses and horse care, and be willing to spend the time, money, and resources on your horse. Also the mucking out question is weird - it does not take me that long to muck out a stall.

These questions are entirely common sense, and do not require experience or effort. If you got all of these questions right, it doesn't AT ALL mean you are ready to won a horse. They left out a lot, and every equestrian differs in how they do their routine - i own two horses and there is a lot more to owning them than this.

I personally ride horses, and I was taking this quiz for fun. Looking at the questions these are very basic questions. In my opinion you need to be very experienced with horses before getting one, this is nowhere near it...
