    I know it seems like a great idea, but there's a lot that goes into moving horses.
    Couldn't agree more!

    True, this is mostly a maybe im not sure if im going to do it. I just talked to my mom and she thinks its somewhat of a good idea because 1 no board paying so less stress on her part and theres a ton of trails out back and I know people ride horses around there.

    How much is board for 3-4 months?

    What does that include?

    How much would you spend on:
    The run-in shelter
    A buddy for the horse
    Transporting the horse to and from
    Repairing/ putting in fencing

    I would just sit down and write out all of the costs; it might seem like you are getting out cheaper at first, but in reality, it just might cost more

    If it's only going to be for a few months, I could see it being the same or more expensive than boarding her for those months.

    Making a list like Kickshaw said would be a good idea. Atleast you'll have an approximate amount of money it will be.

    Ill figure how much everything is going to cost. I have a month or so to think about it so. Feel free to give me any more advice!

    I personally don't think its cheaper to keep horses at home. Well, a temporary home anyways. You won't be able to offset the cost of the supplies you need there over a longer period of time. Especially since you are talking about from the ground up. Fencing and storage sheds aren't cheap. We put up a very low cost electric fence and that was $250 or so.

    What about asking the neighbors if you could keep the horse there for a small fee over the summer?

    They don't take horses in, there not people friendly really lol id rather stay at my barn that im at now then go to them. I understand the cost for everything. This is a difficult situation :P

    I want to be in control of my horse and theres a ton of trails and 100 acre place to ride in when she's trained

    But then again going from 170+ acres to maybe an acre

    Still thinking lol

    If you are thinking about using panels still then you are way better off to leave her at the barn or another barn.

    Panels cost anywhere from $160-$300 Per ONE panel. They are very very costly.

    Also think about all of the other equipment you will need to purchase:

    Manure fork
    Feed scoop
    Feed tub
    Buckets for feed and water
    Ointments and such
    Water hose

    (of course, you may already have some or all of these)

    And, I probably missed this, but where do you have to ride at your aunt's house (besides the backyard)?
