You must be new here. Some people on the forum seem to think that owning a horse is like owning a gold fish... not a whole lot of research goes into the process and it's more of a buy now, worry later type of thing.
I think it's the ignorant horse world in general. For example, a friend of mine works with an OTTB rescue centre and she gets calls every week from parents looking for a horse for their young children who have never, ever been on a horse! When my friend explains that most of these have come right off the track and need a mature confident rider the parents still don't seem to grasp the concept. No worries, it's not like these are large animals that have the potential to kill you if mishandled.
