That's all it's ever going to BE, Julia. A joke, and for GOOD REASON. It's obvious to me that you have absolutely NO CLUE as to what it costs to even buy and keep ONE horse, let ALONE operate a business like a riding stable. Star is correct- owning horses is an expensive proposition, it really is. I've been a horse owner for most of my life, starting when I was a teenager, and I also worked as a professional in the business for over 25 years. It's a hard life. I get that you love horses- most girls your age generally do. I've seldom if ever met any girl who didn't, in fact. Girls and horses are like peanut butter and jelly- they just naturally seem to go together. But really, Julia, you have no idea what you're asking, and if you start whining and begging your mom to do this, you're going to get NOWHERE QUICK. If you want to be around a horse or horses, then start SMALL. Ask if you can take a lesson or two somewhere. Or ask if you can go to a horse camp next summer and ride horses there. But please, DON'T GO begging your mom to open a horse stable, because it will NEVER HAPPEN.
