I am working a full-time job now. I work from 9am to 5:30pm and usually leave my house at 8am and don't get home until about 6:15pm. I am looking for other horse owners that work full time and what do they do to get time in with their horses. Do you board so you don't have to do a lot of heavy labor or do you keep your horses at home? I am looking at ways on how you balance your work, home, and horse life. I don't want to give up on my dreams of owning a horse again because of lack of time or high board areas where we have to live.
I am thinking of lease ideas, but I don't have a lot of time to ride and am not too familiar with the benefits of leasing when I could just get a horse of my own. My experience with a lease horse is you really can't do what you want with them or training like a natural horsemanship clinic, etc. unless the owner wants it.
Love to hear some ideas and opinions.
