Hello! I am looking for advice from experienced equestrians. I have been looking into getting a horse for about a year now, and would like to have insight if I am ready or not. I am 23 years old, have a full time job, usually 12 hours a day, sometimes 8. I live on my own land in the country, have plenty of space for a barn, fence, supplies, etc. Also have plenty of space for trail rides. I have grown up with horses and several of my family members and neighbors own horses. I also have a pretty penny squared away for purchasing everything. We have friendly dogs and cats as well for companionship if it is a loner. The only thing I am not sure about is that I usually work nightshift. Sometimes dayshift and afternoon but usually night from 7p to 7a. Would I have adequate time to feed, exercise, pick the field, etc.? I would also not be opposed to purchasing a mini or Shetland. Any insight is very helpful!
