If you have ever dreamed of owning your own horse, there is far more to consider than just the cost of the horse. The initial purchase is just the start of this big responsibility. These beautiful animals need considerable ongoing resources to ensure a good experience for both you and the horse.
Before you decide on the horse itself, make sure you properly prepared financially and have considered all the costs associated with horse ownership including:
- Housing / boarding
- Foot Care
- Vet Bills
It’s important not to rush into a decision as large as this. Owning a horse is a very big responsibility. It means hard work and a big time commitment; and it usually also means quite a considerable expense. But after all the considerations, should you decide you can make it work, you will be rewarded with a great partnership. Happy trails.
