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.
Hey, thank you for sharing such detailed equestrian expense information! Can I ask how you track your expenses? Software? Spreadsheet?
