  • On a scale of 1(one being easy) to 10(ten being very difficult) How would you rate caring for your own horse? I would say it would be a 6. Gets easier as you go and depends on your own opinion of what's acceptable and what's not.
  • Which one do you enjoy more-Owning on your own property,boarding, or leasing? I LOVE owning my own property. None of that boarding drama or contracts for leases.
  • Could you not live without your horse? I don't know. Practically, I probably could. But I would definitely prefer NOT to!
  • Is your horse your BFF? Lol Definitely. They are much better personalities than people
  • Does the time of owning and caring for a horse pull you away from awesome opportunities? No, not really. It opens more opportunities than it closes
  • Do you ever regret purchasing your horse? Absolutely not. It's amazing.
  • Are they worth everything you have given up? Yes. Like I said, horses are better than people. They are always worth it.
  • Does owning a horse pile on more stress? Or is it the thing that takes stress away and helps you get through the day? Depends on the day and what I am doing. Usually, they are a stress reliever, but when I am in competition mode, sometimes they are stressors.

3 or 4...
  • Which one do you enjoy more-Owning on your own property,boarding, or leasing?
I've never leased or boarded. I love my family owning our own property.
  • Could you not live without your horse?
Not really sure... I dunno what I'd do if I didn't have horses...
  • Is your horse your BFF? Lol
Yes, I'd have to say... definitely.
  • Does the time of owning and caring for a horse pull you away from awesome opportunities?
Nope, I don't get out much, anyway... lol.
  • Do you ever regret purchasing your horse?
I've never purchased a horse, yet... I was given my mare and my uncle bred my mare for me so I'd get a foal for my sixteenth birthday.
  • Are they worth everything you have given up?
Definately!
  • Does owning a horse pile on more stress? Or is it the thing that takes stress away and helps you get through the day?
Owning my horses takes the stress away from everyday life.

  • On a scale of 1(one being easy) to 10(ten being very difficult) How would you rate caring for your own horse?
Probably a 6..

  • Which one do you enjoy more-Owning on your own property,boarding, or leasing?
Boarding.. I would like to have my own barn if I had an indoor and good facilities, but otherwise no thank you.
  • Could you not live without your horse?
To be completely honest, I could live without him.
  • Is your horse your BFF? Lol
No, definitely not.
  • Does the time of owning and caring for a horse pull you away from awesome opportunities?
Not really. The only thing I've had to give up for having a horse is sports, and I had to give them up for other reasons as well(injuries!) so it wasn't really that difficult. I manage to spend time with my friends and being a high school senior at a college prep school while managing to ride at least 5 days a week, so I have good time management skills I guess?
  • Do you ever regret purchasing your horse?
Yes. I wish that I would have waited until I knew what I really wanted.
  • Are they worth everything you have given up?
As I said before, I haven't really given up anything to have my horse.. so I guess I don't really have an answer. Lol
  • Does owning a horse pile on more stress? Or is it the thing that takes stress away and helps you get through the day?
Neither nor really.. I have days where I despise my horse so much and he makes life difficult, but then there are days when I really love him haha

* On a scale of 1(one being easy) to 10(ten being very difficult) How would you rate caring for your own horse?
Probably a 4. My horses eat grass in the Summer, which isn't any work. They are in a 24/7 turnout. And in the Winter we just give them round bale after round bale until the grass is growing really good (April or May) Every time I go over there I give them sweet feed. But I don'y weigh it out or anything. No labor intensive work, but sometimes they worry me.
* Which one do you enjoy more-Owning on your own property,boarding, or leasing?
Owning on my own property. No one to steal stuff from you! I would kind of like to see what a boarding stable is like, but I don't ride so it's kind of pointless...
* Could you not live without your horse?
NO! Especially not Havana :)
* Is your horse your BFF? Lol
Absolutely!
* Does the time of owning and caring for a horse pull you away from awesome opportunities?
No. My horses's pretty much take care of themselves. (Yes, I brush them) I'm just saying they never get out, get caught in a fence, hurt.
* Do you ever regret purchasing your horse?
Havana no. Shelly yes. Shelly has cronic laminites, and I get a lot of crap about it from people who don't even know me. I love her, but when you have animal control watching your every move, it sucks. I don't want to sell her because of her bad hooves, and she is old. She would probably meet a sad end.
* Are they worth everything you have given up?
Yes x10
* Does owning a horse pile on more stress? Or is it the thing that takes stress away and helps you get through the day?
Both. I have to worry about them being safe, and if I can get hay. (Really no reason to, I always do ) But at the end of the day it nice to see them fat and happy. :p

  • On a scale of 1(one being easy) to 10(ten being very difficult) How would you rate caring for your own horse?
5 - It would be MUCH easier for me if I could have my horses in my backyard. I board my horses at my friends barn, which she rents from someone else. So I have to deal with how she likes to do things, and work around some of them.
  • Which one do you enjoy more-Owning on your own property,boarding, or leasing?
I would absolutely LOVE having my horses on my own property.
  • Could you not live without your horse?
TBH, it depends on the horse. Lol I love my mare Athena to death, and when she dies I know I'll take it pretty hard.
  • Is your horse your BFF? Lol
Sure
  • Does the time of owning and caring for a horse pull you away from awesome opportunities?
Nope
  • Do you ever regret purchasing your horse?
NO! It took me over a decade of persuading before my parents finally caved, and bought my first horse.
  • Are they worth everything you have given up?
YES!
  • Does owning a horse pile on more stress? Or is it the thing that takes stress away and helps you get through the day?
It's the one thing that I look forward to every day.

On a scale of 1(one being easy) to 10(ten being very difficult) How would you rate caring for your own horse?

at the moment its way up there around 8 or 9, as there is zero feed in the paddocks and virtually no hay around

Which one do you enjoy more-Owning on your own property,boarding, or leasing?

without a doubt things would be much easier if I had my own property, its irritating having someone else breathing down your neck when you just wanna chill with your horses

Could you not live without your horse?

practically speaking yes, but I would never be the same person after losing them

Is your horse your BFF? Lol

Rexy baby always listens to my whinging about my day so I guess so haha

Does the time of owning and caring for a horse pull you away from awesome opportunities?

I wouldnt say that at all. Pouring all my money in to them definitely gives me far less of a social life.

Do you ever regret purchasing your horse?

Never, none of them. Rex & Hugo are my soul mate horses, Trojan is my partner's soul mate horse, Fanta is mum's soul mate horse, Nippa needed some TLC and is cleaning up in to the best little pony and will be fantastic for kids in the long run and Kody & Phoenix needed out of where they were so I got them out!

Are they worth everything you have given up?

Without a doubt, and they remind me of it everytime I show up at the paddock and they all greet me at the fence

Does owning a horse pile on more stress? Or is it the thing that takes stress away and helps you get through the day?

it really does depend on the day, but the horses don't really stress me out its more where they are, so I guess no they don't pile on the stress and they definitely pull me through when I am having a bad one
