If you want to save money don't buy a horse
One thing I have noticed is the weight on horse feed. I was buying a good quality pellet feed at a big chain store thinking it was cheaper than my local co-op. I checked the weight on the bag and it was only 40lbs. I stopped at the co-op and their best quality Purina feed was only $1 more but was in a 50lb. Bag. If you think your getting a deal on your feed, check how much your getting. I actually saved money going with the best quality Purina when you figure your getting 10 extra pounds per bag.
