Buying a horse is an exciting moment in every horse lover’s life. It is a moment in your life where your dream and wish is granted. I have to admit though, buying a horse isn’t just all rainbows and butterflies. Don’t get me wrong, buying a horse is INCREDIBLE, but it also comes with great commitment and huge financial investment. Buying a horse requires a lot of thought, time, and most of all, money. It is definitely worth it though! There are so many decisions involved such as what breed of horse you want, how much you are willing to spend, what is the discipline you will be riding, and many more questions. Today, I am giving you my DO’s and DON’ts of buying a horse so that you can be prepared on how to handle different situations and how to make the final decisions on buying your dream horse. Enjoy!
Owning a horse brings a lot of excitement, but it does take a lot of responsibility and commitment as well. You have to be able to care for the horse and have the money to provide for your horse too. Before buying a horse, it is especially important to set out a plan such as your goals, budget plans, and to make a list of what you will need to help support your horse, not to mention the vet and farrier bills. To make that “planning” a little easier, today I am giving you 5 must-haves for a new horse owner. This is really helpful if you are stuck and don’t know what the first steps are in taking care of your horse. I hope this post helps all of you new horse owners out there and gives you a good idea of what owning a horse is all about. Enjoy!
As you might not know, I live in Canada and it is COLD in the winter time here! I have to really bundle up when I go out to the barn because here in Canada it can get as cold as -40 degrees celsius, which is SUPER cold! Usually, I don’t go out to the barn below -15 celsius, but even that is still cold!
So today, I am going to give you my top 10 winter riding essentials for every rider. Whether you live in Canada or some other place really cold, these essentials apply to you as well. It is so unenjoyable to ride when us riders can’t even feel our toes or our fingers feel like they are going to fall off (trust me, I know from experience). It is much more enjoyable riding when we are warm! So, I am giving you my essentials for riding in the winter! I hope you enjoy this post and most of all find it very helpful!
