I live on a budget already, but am earning more money now (I was given more hours, but still work less than 20 hours a week so could spend gobs of time with a horse). With this "extra" money I thought, "Maybe it is finally time to get a horse." I want to emphasize, this horse is an "easy keeper", but I also need to emphasize that I am green and relatively low-income.
Am I out of my mind for even considering horse ownership? I need to brush up my skills and knowledge but I feel prepared to offer some light arena or trail riding to a couple people I trust for a little extra income. This horse is amazing and could even work with kids, and I am smitten.
I know I may read some responses I won't like, but I absolutely appreciate your honesty and advice. If there is ANY way to own a horse on a budget, please let me know how I can do that. I don't want this opportunity to slip away, and I have tons of time to work with this lovely girl.
