    It's been 7 years since I started riding horses and I've just now decided that I will FINALLY be able to give a horse an amazing home. O.O That's a long time. Haha

    Ha Ha I had to chuckle because this is so true. It takes at least that long to figure everything out. I finally got to the point where I could financially own my own horse about 7-8 years ago and I am still learning new things everyday. Leasing and lessons is definitely the way to go for novice families.

    I didn't buy my first horse until I was 36. I leased for a while before buying him and the leasing gave me the perfect opportunity to find out how much things would cost. I love our barnowners because they gave me an incredible boarding fee because they love my horse and I spend a lot of time out there cleaning out not just his stall, but everyone in one of the barns and making sure I keep the barn clean and organized. Right now, my biggest expense was buying him and when the farrier was there 2 days ago, he put two shoes on his front feet and shaved the back and it was $60.00. I have a sports car that I drive in the summer that will be the first thing to go if I need something major for my horse. I know it would kill my husband to see it go but I would rather have paul then my mustang. Good luck in your purchase.
