    Has anyone gone to ace stables?
    I just went yesterday on a trail ride!
    I'm hoping to buy a horse and board it there but my parents are still thinking about if I should get a horse or just lease one , is there anybody who has any Ideas?

    Maybe find a lease with the option to buy? I have seen quite a few of those recently in my area, maybe there are a few by you :)

    First of all, I'm very impressed by the action you are taking. You are being very mature about the situation, making a list and being realistic about costs. Second, if you are just looking for a pleasure horse, I would recommend a Western saddle. I find them more comfortable, and I definitely feel more secure in them. Not to mention the saddle horn is great for holding bags, so if you go on trail rides you can have lunch and a water bottle sitting right in front of you.

    About leasing or buying, see if you can talk to the stable about leasing to buy. It's a deal where you lease the horse for whatever amount per month. If you decide you want to buy him or her, the cost you have spent leasing the horse will go towards the cost of the horse (that will have been agreed upon prior to the leasing). If you lease the horse long enough to pay it off before deciding to buy, then the extra money could go towards boarding costs. So for example, if you decide that the horse will cost $3,000 total, and you lease for three months at $150 per month before deciding to buy, that $450 you have spent leasing the horse would be deducted from the final cost of the horse. It's an option to consider, anyways :)

    Thank you shoebox,
    What you said is very helpful to me I will think about that.
    Other wise I think I'm done with asking questions so that means that I am done with this thread.
    But you guys have all been very helpful and I thank you very much!
    (I will not be replieing to my thread anymore so don't bother about writing to me anymore)

    My last post was not meant to be abrubt but why I said that was I finally realized that my parents said that they wanted to know how much a horse would cost and not that I would definitely get one:(
    recently my parents finally said that I could take actual lessons so I have been to my 2nd lesson and the going is SLOW but I now know how much a horse cost so then when I do get a horse I can just come right here and ask help and I will also be ready with what expensis cost:)
    so thanks everybody for the help and I am really disappointed about not getting a horse:(:(
    but as I said I will be prepared for when I can get my first horse!
