Glad to shed some light. Some people think horses are a rich person's hobby. If you are one of those new age people who call the vet all the time and have an acupuncturist and massage therapist on speed dial for your horse, then yes, they are. If you show a lot, yes, they are. Tack and show clothes are not cheap. Truck and trailer are not cheap, neither is the gas to ge them to the show. Show entries are not cheap. Tail extensions, trainers and other special grooming supplies are not cheap.... To just have a friend in the back field to hop on and got for a ride, that isn't that bad. I spend more on my birds in a month.
'friend in the back field to hop on and go for a ride' lol.... love it
