I live in Germany, have my 4yo boy (horse ).
The military camp I am currently on is closing this summer. I am due to move the first week of July to another base in Germany around 3 hours down the road.
Which is fine, but it is REALLY expensive. Like.. double the amount. I am very worried because if I can't find anything else.. which I haven't as of yet... I will have to sell.
I need partial livery to feed and turnout. So far we're looking at least €460 a month compared to the €250 I currently pay for full livery; I just turn up and ride.
Would you think that taking a loanee would be a good idea, or not for such a young horse? Would be advertised for someone with experience, but I am quite worried about letting anyone and everyone ride. I can plop anyone on his back no problems... but this would probably be twice a week.
The German's have loan contracts where it states if you must have lesson, what the horse is described as suitable for etc. And I would state one lesson a week required...
I can't take another job due to taxes and entitlement.
But any ideas are welcome. Feel a bit miserable about the prospect.
