New Horse? Need a Shopping list? Or just Curious?

So you wanna own a horse? Buckle up butter cup, this lifestyle isn’t for the faint of heart or the broken bank account.

It will change you from the person you were to the person you were meant to be!

So are they worth it? Absolutely!


I say this with love and full intention of not detouring people away but instead I would like to give insight on the realities of our industry to help people with budgeting and planning for their new lifestyle with horses.

So I have compiled a shopping list of items and costs from very basic beginner to advanced (“I wanna train professionally or Show”).


I hope this is helpful from the shopping list to the financial investment. Please Enjoy and share if you found this helpful.
