Thanks! I'm glad I'm smart enough to look at what I would be getting into.
Thanks for all the help! :)
I can't believe some regions cost $1000 for boarding, that's just...crazy. Here I look at around $350. I also hope to get a barefoot horse, and keep it barefoot. We have Healthy Stride around here, which I've seen on a friend's horse that is amazing! I also hear that teeth floating without power tools is cheaper too, and just better (at least to me - I wouldn't want a giant power tool in my mouth). So, the combination of those two will cut costs a little too.
Basically, now I need to find a job (I'm 15 1/2 - don't let age define me! LOL) and save up a couple grand.
