Hey guys- I'm in a slight dilemma. I'm bringing my horse home in a month, and I have 2 options:
1. Buy a second horse & pay for board myself come winter
2. Find someone to loan me their horse for the summer and return them in the winter
I am a personal fan of option 1 - I am always looking to increase my experience, and taking on a project horse that I can sell in a few years would be a great way to not only learn but give me a taste of what the training world is like.
Option 2 is less appealing, but more practical. I would still opt for a ride-able, sound horse, but there wouldn't be the expense of having to care for a horse over winter.
What are your thoughts?
