Another good way to start is to work at a horse barn. You'll learn how to care for them, what they need for food, what an illness or injury looks like and how to care for it, etc. That's where I got most of my experience! If you start taking lessons along with that, you'll be on your way. I'm pretty sure it's IMPOSSIBLE to know everything about horses, you'll always be learning something new! :)
Also, you can browse some of the topics in this forum like the riding, horse care, tack, and health threads to learn more information. Plus you'll get lots of experienced people giving their opinions which will help you be more well-rounded in your knowledge. There's a lot to learn, just have fun and do it as you go!
