    Anxiety. "Will she get sick? Will I be able to handle it? What if she I ruin her and she does crazy and becomes unrideable? What if she breaks a leg? What if she gets caught in a fence? What if she colics and I can't get the vet out in time? What if I come out one day and see her laying dead in the field? What if I don't train her right and her former owners hate me?"

    Agreed. Losing a beloved friend is the hardest part. I think a close second would be some catastrophic injury that didn't kill them but left them permanently unusable. After that, the hardest part of it all is the expense. It takes a lot of money to care for a horse well and unless you are winning shows of using them for actual work (ranch hands, etc), the only payment you get back is the joy they offer.

    Losing them.
    Getting kicked.
    Having to be harsh to them, when training.
    Mucking the out their poop.

    Yeah being harsh to em is tough too, agree with you there, but stuff won't get done if you don't get harsh.
