How much would YOU save up?
Okay so just another quick question. I think i'll actually make it into a poll. How much would YOU save up before getting a new horse? My bank account has taken a bit of a punch today since I had to get the transmission fixed =*(. So, I would like to see what everyone else has done, or would do.
If it comes down to a horse I have been watching and wanting, I will pay. This goes the same way for breedings. I think that if you are going to get something, you might as well get what you really want, and if that means having to pay a little more, then so be it, atleast you are more likely to keep it! :)
Are you talking about just the purchase price of the horse, or all other expenses, like board, tack, farrier, etc...?
depends on what you want to do with it and how much training it needs to have. I pay as much as is financially responsible. That can mean a lot of things. :) If I can find a great green broke horse with lots of potential for $1000 I'll pay that over a mediocre but broke trail horse for $2000. But I only buy horses to resell. If I was just wanting a good broke beginner friendly horse to trail around on, I'd save up to buy something that fits that category. I don't buy cheap saddles just to own a saddle. I don't buy cheap horses just to own a horse. It's always better to save up and get what you really want.
3000+ if necessary.
