  1. Barn Maintenance
    1. Not sure if this should be going in barn maintenance, off topic, or somewhere else... This is about keeping/caring for a property and the horses so??? Didn't seem quite a perfect fit but oh well. 2. I understand prices for care differ by area. An excellent full care facility in my area costs...

    I have had fancy jumpers who all had shoes. I do not know what a farrier should cost for a trim on my new barefoot project. Thanks
  3. Horse Boarding
    I'm essentially asking if boarders are responsible for paying for repairs if their horse breaks something? I understand if their horse breaks a fence once or twice. That's an easy fix and it's no big deal; but what if a horse breaks something (like a gate) multiple times within a month? Do you...

  7. New to Horses
    I posted a while ago about my parents not letting me own, lease or part lease a horse. However, my instructor has recently brought up the idea with my mother several times and I think I may have the slightest chance. I've worked out all costs and details and have put them into a Powerpoint...
  8. Horse Talk
    Hey guys! This is my first thread. I just wanted to ask y'all a question to see if y'all can help. I want to be able to possibly sell something to make money for a horse. I don't know what to sell. Do y'all have any ideas on what I could sell? I want it to be something easy that can be simply...
  9. Horse Trailers
    I know this may seem an obsurd question...but I am struggling with the decision to buy a truck and trailer. Long story short, we bought a farm last year and have spent a crazy amount of money:shock: building a new fence/addition to the barn,etc. I have always boarded my horse therefore never...
  10. New to Horses
    Hello everyone, My boyfriend and I just bought a 44.5 acre property and I've been starting to do my research to get a horse (my plan is to have one next year/spring 2015). The property is 5 acres residential, 26 acres agricultural (has been harvested for hay for the last 15 years) and the...
  11. Horse Boarding
    I'm not boarding, but I'm still wondering, for future reference how much should it cost? what should it provide? Food and water, field and shelter, blanket and fly mask, bug spray. What else? should you charge them for their horses to use your blankets, halter, lead, etc? In the cost of...
  12. Horse Boarding
    Hi! I am only 14 years old and and trying to save up to board my horse at a place near me, because he currently lives in another state with my grandma. I am looking around for stables to work at and asking around at different places to see if they would lower the board cost in exchange for...

    I. love. this. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! :D "Very often we hear parents at the riding school complain about the cost of horses. While we know they eat a hole in the pocket, a father recently shared why he forks out for the animals. We’ve copied this from Facebook and definitely...
  14. Horse Breeds
    Okay, so I'm looking for a new horse and I've mainly come across TBs. I'm a teenage rider with 8 years of riding experience, now looking to do eventing. I was just wondering, are thoroughbreds more expensive to keep than, say, warmbloods? In terms of feed? I've heard of them being 'poor doers'...
  15. Hoof Care
    I am new to horse ownership in Calgary. I am wondering what your farrier charges in the Calgary area for a new set of shoes compared to refitting the same shoes a second time. I was quite surprised when my farrier told me that he charges the same price regardless of putting on a new set of shoes...
  16. Horse Talk
    I'm really emotional right now, and I'm actually crying over this. I've been riding for 4 years now. My parents refused to let me buy my own riding equipment (helmet, boots e.t.c.) until this year and instead made me use the old, stretched, too big and overused boots and helmets at the place...
  17. Horse Boarding
    Hello all, I'm new here but not to horses. I've been riding from the age of 8 and I'm now 18, so that's a total of 10 wonderful years of experience. =) I've leased several horses and have fallen in love with them all, but none as much as the sweet heart I'm leasing now, a 7 year old hanovarian...

  19. Barn Maintenance
    I was thinking would it be cheaper to buy a house with land and get the fencing, stables and ménage built or buy a house with them already? (in pounds if you can please) thanks!x
