^^That would definitely help you spread out the cost :)

What about trailering over and riding for a day, then taking her back - - do you have a trailer, or is your horse close to your aunt's property?

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.

It'a always great to have control over a horse, but yes as every one has stated it is very stressfull on a horse by moving it back and forth, as you stated the horse is not trained ( not riddable yet?) that it is much better to leave her at the trainers.

Yes it is fun to have a horse in the back yard but it is also a paine in the rear to have one there, my 2 horses are out back behind my house and it is a paine to get some one who knows about horses to come and take care of my 2 when we want to go on a trip.

The sand pits sound great but your going to want to stay away from them!!! Unlike a beach they re not pact down and can bow tendons. Also town's have very strict zoneing laws now . My dad owns land in maine and also have a beach house down the street from the land, I thought of bringing abby to maine for a few weeks and setting up a electric fence on his other's not zoned for that so no beach ridding for us!!!.

If I could I would be boaring my 2 horses, it is cheaper in the long run to have them at a boarding stable where some who know's what there doing can watch on them 24/7. I'm paying $ 40 for a ton of parie hay every month, plus feed is $ 8.90 for a 50 pound bag ( I go through about 5-6 bags amonth..... we trim our horses hooves our selfs so that saves money, when we put up our frncing it cost us about $ 2,500.oo in pannels, wireing and t post and 2 box's that cost us about $ 250 each.

It seems like you saving money by keeping a horse at home but look at the pros and cons


You save gas going to the barn

Your horse is right there


Will a vet farrier be called when need?

What kind of training will the horse lose out by being on your property

Will any one know what to do if the horse is injured or sick?

And no dog's are not good companions for horses......if abby had a chance she would kill any of my 3 dog's.
