Honestly its rough sometimes this month alone Ive spent over $500 in emergency vet calls ughhhh. Although difficult nothing is impossible. This is what I have done that has helped me out a lot!
I started separate bank accounts one for my horse, one for saving and one for my other bills. This way I can keep all of my money separate and going towards the right things. When I get paid I take a majority of it and split it down the middle and put half in Jacks account and the other half for my billing account. I then take the leftover and put it in my savings (which I do not touch once it goes in there). Its really hard to save but not impossible...I just work my butt off to do it ....3 jobs :( Once you get a horse try going to tack consignment stores to get a saddle, pads, blankets, etc. Look for a place to board where you can do feedings 3x/week in exchange for cheaper board. I do every spring vaccinations that I can so I can eliminate the cost of having a vet come out. Go on the internet and find ways to make home remedies for stuff like hair detangler or fly spray. Buy in bulk (may be more expensive at first but it will def pay off in the long run). Goodluck!
