I will definitely lease a horse first. I was considering that in the first place, but at the barn I ride at the only type of lease available is the one where "leasing" means being able to come up and ride on designated days whenever you want. I don't feel like that would give me an accurate idea on horse ownership and I am more interested in the lease where I'm responsible for most things.
Don't judge a farrier by how much they charge....they are not related in the least. Posted via Mobile Device
