Howdy and welcome! How long has your daughter been taking riding lessons? If it hasn't been long, that is common with young girls, wanting their own horse. But please, before you do, have her take lessons for a year or two, gain experience with horses, how to care for them, have her muck stalls, clean water buckets, move hay, learn to grain, all the things that someone who owns horses does on a daily basis.
Then you factor hay, farrier services, tack, grain, blankets, equipment you may need, basic vet care through the year and any emergencies should they arise, and they do, things of that nature. Buying a horse isn't cheap either, depending on her chosen discipline and what she wants to do with said horse. A good trailer and truck needs to be included.
Just some things to think about.
