I'm new here so will start by saying hello! Like all on here I'm an absolute horse lover. I'm looking forward to joining your boards and having a good look through your posts.
I'm 35 and have been riding on and off since I was 8. I have never owned my own horse but it is my dream! Here is what I need some advice on. I'm now in a position financially were I could buy a horse, but I work 4 days a week and have two boys aged 1 and 4. My kids are my priority but I would so love to have my own horse. I do work at home a fair bit so as long as the horse is stabled near me I could spend my lunch time with it. Is it just a pipe dream gettin a horse right now? How do others with kids juggle it? I do have a loan option for 2 days per week but there are restrictions with that. At the moment I'm havin two lessons per week but I really want to progress to little competitions etc. I've still got loads to learn as still bit rusty but was hopin I might be able to do that with my own horse?!
Maybe I'm mad and would be better to wait till kids are a bit older? Would love to hear your views!
