How long after being interested in horses should someone buy there own?

How long after being interested in horses should someone buy there own?
i have been riding for 6 years and am fostering a horse and leased last year, you need to make sure you know everything possible, before leasing i trained 2 horses and learned about their behavior and how their brains work, and learned a ton, i would recommend leasing after atleast 5 years to make sure you are ready
You can ride horses for 10 years and never have your own.
It's not about how long you ride it's about having the necessary conditions, time, money and all around knowledge about horses to make sure your horse can live happily.
Best of luck!
