hmm...lets see...with 1 mil....
1st. Put some money into the bank/invest it
2nd. Build a simple arena & add a few stalls
3rd. Buy essentials
4th. Build a small x country course in our back field & create paths through the other 60 acres of land.
If I won the jack pot ( 50 mil. +)
1st. Invest / save in bank
2nd. Build a stone stables, very old English looking, with European style 15 x 15 stalls. The arena would be 200ft x 200ft ( if that's even possible lol). I would have a vet station, and an equine swimming pool & rehabilitation center.there would be an outdoor dressage ring + a grass jumping ring, along with a fully developed cross country course, complete with ditches, water jumps, and sunken roads.
3rd. Fill that stables with beautiful, top quality, antique storage, saddle racks, etc.
4th. Hire a full time ' teach me everything' trainer, who will teach lessons & give me advice on how to care for my horse.
5th. Build a beautiful mansion, matching the stables, and looking very old English & castle like.
*sigh* oh the dreams....
