    Well, I'm a mom of 3 and I work full time for the Army National Guard in my state and also drill. I sell items sometimes to pay for new equipment, but mostly I just am careful with my spending and keep a bit in savings. My hubby's aunt and gramps own/lease the land where the horses are.. and she is the legal owner of my horse, though she considers her mine. I don't have to pay for boarding, our family does trade offs for hay in the winter and we all chip in for grain. She pays for shoes and most of the vet care even though I protest when she does LOL. I'm looking for a Quarter or mustang or cross breed for my kids right now... I'll have to fight her to get her to let me pay for all of it's care LOL. I'm very fortunate. My hunny works full time for the Army National Guard as well.

    I had horses as a kid.. I showed Saddlebreds. My parents were wealthy. I am not LOL. I wasn't able to own a horse after I got pregnant with my oldest biological child.. I just this year have been able to start back thanks to my hunny's family. They are wonderful.

    I don't own the horses...my parents do. My mom owns and pays for the five on our property, and my dad owns and pays for the Arabs that are boarded. I pay for tack and equipment for the horses at my mom's, but as they're a family hobby, she works full time to support them. My dad also works full-time as a corporate lawyer and pays for the Arabs.

    The reason I asked, I had my debit card copied(?) while back when I was using it in stores (I never used it to pay over Internet). Not sure where and how it happened, but someone used the number, name, etc. from the card to buy stuff over Internet from my checking account twice. Thankfully the person in 2nd Internet store got too suspicious and reported to my bank that blocked the card and called me. But it wasn't very pleasant to go to the branch trying to get my $500 or so back (because 1st transaction went through).

    Yes, I agree debit card works similar to credit card, however in a case of fraud I much rather prefer to deal with credit one, then my own funds. :)

    I work 2 jobs, 80-90 hrs a week. Go to school part time. Show (travel) 2-3 weekends a month w f/t trainer. I "live" at home, but am lucky to make it home 2 nights a week that I'm not working. My parents assist with the trainer bill sometimes, and do house me (aka let me sleep shower and do laundry if I can make it home lol). I pay for all my personal needs/wants, school, and all horse show costs (show national APHA). I could afford to move out, but wouldnt be able to continue saving for property or feeding my emergency fund if I added rent too. My parents have money, but I have pride knowing I work my butt off to continue enjoying horses. Thank god my job rocks!

    Great question, interesting answers so far! I've wanted a horse all my life, and finally managed to have enough money to afford my ponies <3
    I work 3-4 days a week as a therapeutic riding instructor, and 2 days a week volunteering at a rescue (no pay x.x) but ALL worth it! At first I afforded my horse by keeping her at the rescue and working off her board, only paying for what she used. Now I keep her and my pony at the barn on my property so I only need to pay for what they use :)
    My wonderful Fiance pays for me, so my money just has to take care of my ponies xD and any other toys I find I need :P
