NewYorkeR trying to get into horses
this is my first post here on this forum.if this is not the right place to post this mod. please move it .
i came to here trying to gather info and people opinion on owning a horse.i have been lurking here for a while now i have learned a lot.
well i live in NYC i have owned a horse back in the childhood it was arabian horse(it was in KSA), so i am planning to get,lease or rent a horse in 3 years time.i am trying to see how other Newyorkers have done it,living in NYC is different,boarding is quite expensive.unless you live out of the city i believe it is different.
here is the plan,i am gonna take classes in the horse academy by the beltparkway it is 85 dollars an hour for lessons. and if you think this is not a lot, me and you are in different tax brackets lol...i will be able to afford a class per week.in this pace i think i will not go any where.have any one been in this situation before?
any sport/hobby costs money i know.but i would love to learn about horses riding training stable upkeep and the horse's upkeep.
what will an average person do to start his/her pursue for this ?is it too far to say i could make a career out of this?i would love to work with horses maybe a helper on a stable so i could immerse my self in all the aspects before owning a horse.most of employers would want a person with experience but how to gather this experience in the first place when every one wants an experienced employees.
thank you for reading my lengthy post.any constructive advise will help.
