    have you ever owned one before?, have you taken ridding lessons in the past?,
    are you well preparded for the vet/ farrier bills, plus boarding bills?.

    OR....volunteer at a stables. Then you can learn all you need to know from various other horse owners and you can be around the horses and see what it takes to keep one up.

    Quote:that's what stopped me, too. Some day I want a horse, but I may have to go "lease" one at a local stable first to learn more about them and how to care for them and all that is involved.

    I almost ended up with a 9 year old Belgium Draft last spring and I have no doubt that I could learn about taking care of him and proper horsemanship, but I think I will start the sane way and lease one instead.
