Exclamation Help with pricing please!!!

Okay, so in a few years I think I will be going to buy a horse. I think that as a good convincing statement I could say that I would buy all the equipment, and the horse, and all boarding services for the first year, I bet they will think I am paying too much, but I still need to be prepared for the most! So, I am wondering what I need to buy equipment wise (and I mean EVERYTHING that I will ever need.) And at my barn the boarding service for 1 month is $375. (well for the crappy old freezing barn) or $425 (new nice heated barn) which one do you think would be better? Do you think in the long run the new barn (which is $50 more) would be a better choice? Or does it not matter? And I think I will buy a horse that is around $3500.( ahh that's a lot of money! My walet hurts jusut thinking about it) Or do you think think that I don't need to get one that expensive? And the reason why I am trying to figure it out so early is because I think it will take me a few years to make that amount of money. Haha.

So, long story short, what is EVERYTHING that I need to own a horse, and do you think I need to buy a horse that is $3500 or can I go for cheaper? And do I need to go for the expensive heated barn, or cheaper freezing barn????


So, really hope you can help!!!

Thanks,
Ponycrazy

How about outdoor board instead of inside? If not go for the heated barn, in the long run it will be better then a freezing, not working barn. Depends how the economy is you could probably get a horse for $1000-3000 that's just as good as an expensive one. Also depends on your experiance with them.

You'll need saddle, pads, bridles, halters, leads, grooming stuff{brushes, shampoos, detangler, etc.}, blankets, wraps/boots, buckets, dewormers, farrier money, vet money.

There's probly more I haven't covered. Not all coming to mind rigth now.

Buying dewormer is like buying anything else. It's sold at all tack stores.

I would say do field board if those are your only two barn choices. Dilapidated barns are hazardous, and a heated barn can be a fire hazard, and if it's that well insulated, could cause breathing problems for your horse from not getting fresh air.

I suggest going to Horse Tack, Horse & Equine Supplies - Statelinetack.com and make an account (or maybe you don't have to, I haven't used that website in forever) and start sticking things in your basket or wishlist. That should give you a good idea. Before I could get a horse, I would go through the stateline tack catalog and mark up every single thing I wanted, and then figure out the total cost.
