I agree on some of this but some of it, well its kinda ignorance.
I am buying my first horse now, I have money stashed away for vet bills and every little thing he needs but the thing is, some of the people on here are incredibly rude to others who ask for advice. I read something somene said about how most people just ask so they dont have to do their own research, well I made a post about my new horse that has a pushy attitude at times. Sure, I haven't researched yet but the reason I made the post was to ask Experienced Horse People what they have done in the past, rather then find out from other people who could be wrong, who knows. I think we need to be more willing to listen and understand before judging as I asked for peoples opinion and I had a member tell me that I should buy a dog instead. Not sure where exactly I'm going with this now..
So yes, some people dont deserve to own horses, but there are so many that try, no scratch that, they give their heart and all the coins in their pocket to keeping the horse happy and healthy. So dont judge everyone buy how mmuch money they have.
