Definitely agree with Alex and Prinella! Continue riding, working your skills, and save the money as if you were putting it toward the horse board, and in a years time or less, you'll be ready to fence your property, keep any newly purchased horse at HOME (what a DREAM! Imagine looking outside every day and seeing your baby running up and down your property lines! Ahhhh...) Sorry! Got lost in my own momentary fantasy...Anyway, during the time you are saving and cont.lessons, etc...you can ALSO (if you don't already have this piece of knowledge) , be "prepping" on how to rotate pasture areas to keep everything healthy and green, as well as networking with whichever vet is the best for you, closest to your home/Farriers, etc...so your professional "team" will be in place the day you buy and bring home your new horse!
You are one very blessed person to be contemplating all of this!! Can I move in with you and do it all, too? Haha! That was sarcasm, not freaky stalker-talk, FYI! :0)
Absolute best of luck to you!!!! B2H :0)
