    I need some Helpful Advice

    Hey Y'all, Well I am hoping to lease a horse and maybe own one soon. I was wondering if anyone could give me some helpful advice on take care of a horse.. I am going to take some lessons on caring for one, but maybe I can get a head start and learn something from experienced horse owners. I know abit, but I want to know more.

    I would really appreciate any advice.

    Definitely suggest that you lease before you buy. There is a lot involved in caring for a horse and it does get costly.

    Here is some info for you:

    Also, when its time to buy, don't be afraid to check out local horse rescues. There are some beautiful horses looking for homes

    My advice

    Leasing is always a good option if you can find a good horse. If your a first time buyer you have to be leary. Be sure you take someone with you that is experience with horses. You'll want a horse with out vices (bad habits) and that has experience. Even though a young horse sounds appealing an older, seasoned horse is a safer bet and you'll be able to enjoy him more.

    Feeding is another thing. All horses are different in how much they need to be fed, but many make the same mistake. This mistake is feeding them too much. It might not sound bad, but it causes a lot of problems for your horse. If you're unsure how much to feed ask your vet or an experienced horseman.
