She want money for the horses tho.
It doesnt matter what kind of horse just one for trail, and arena rides. Her daughters are begginers to regular riding, but they do vaulting. They arent lookinf for a vaulting horse tho

May I ask - will the be able to afford to feed, house and provide veterinary/farrier care for a horse? Then initial purchase cost of a horse is such a small portion of what it costs to actually have one, my concern would be they would not be able to based on not being able to afford the cost of purchasing one.

The barn owners will pitch in for boarding, shots, worming, farrier work, lessons, etc? Those things are more expensive than the horse itself.

This seems a little odd, horse's are a luxury, not a right. She needs to think real hard about all the time and money this is going to cost her. Are the people at the barn willing to pay for all this stuff for the entire life of this horse?

I was going to say I know a few that are looking for good homes, but this does not sound like a very good situation.

Going to have to agree with all the above. The whole situation just seems, off, for lack of a better word.

I suggest to your friend taking ALOT of lessons, working at the barn (stables, grooming) so she gets the feel of what it is like to own a horse. Then possibly lease, horses take ALOT of work,time and money. I know I've given up my whole social life for bubs.
