How Much Do Horses Cost?
You’ve heard (likely countless times) horses eat money… but how much?
When it comes to owning a horse, it’s important to be prepared for the financial responsibility that comes with them. (Though, like parenting, you’re never “really” prepared for a horse.) Understanding the typical expenses ahead of time will help make sure you’re set up for success from day one.
That’s why I decided to publish monthly expense reports showing exactly where my horse money goes — and how I feel about it along the way.
What was worth the cost? What do I regret buying? What expense came out of nowhere? I get into all the nitty-gritty details no one talks about.
These reports are also a good way to benchmark your own spending, discover new ways to save money, or find areas where it may be worth investing more.
