    I don't actually have a horse (yet,) however, I've taken lessons for years and I've had on and off leasing- I'm starting again in January. My instructor might sell more of hers again though, so I always like to be prepared encase something happens. (:

    That is pretty exciting! If you are leasing through your instructor you should see if you could do it for a longer period of time, or if you are able to invest in long term horse ownership why not see if she can help you look for a horse, or a lease if that is something you are more comfortable with :) She probably knows a lot of other horse owners in your area and would be able to go out with you to check out different sales and leases while giving you information on whether or not the horse you look at would be a good fit :) Just remember that as exciting it is to have a horse you should take your time, shop around, and weight different options before jumping in ;) Good Luck!

    It is, I can't wait! And these are some great ideas, thank you!

    Option one sounds best. If it's a bit pricey for you why don't you talk to your trainer and explain the situation, if you're willing to help out regularly, maybe cover some of your own horse care you might get it for the same price.

    If things were always that simple, then I wouldn't be having a boarding debate myself. Sigh... the woes of not having a trailer :/

    Sounds like you already know what you're going to do. If you're happy where you are and are ok without the features, then unless you're really in need of money I'd stay where you are.
