What Do You Do when Your Daughter Wants You to Buy Her a Horse?

Our daughter came to us one evening and asked if we would buy her a horse. She had went riding the week before, and now she was convinced she wanted to own a horse. I told her that if she learns everything she can about caring for horses including the cost of ownership along showing a real sustained interest in riding, then we would consider it. Well, she never let up a bit in six months, so now we are buying the horse she has been riding as well as buying childrens equestrian clothing for her to wear when she does ride.

All of the other girls wore outfits specifically made for riding horses. They have a tight-knit group, and the other older girls have given our daughter some things they have grown out of.
