Knowing what to do and how to look after the horse and some people get a feeling that they want to spend there life with them. Also knowing the costs of horses and making sure you are READY because horses are a big commitment. When you own a horse it isn’t a hobby it’s a lifestyle.
First, knowing all the basics is important. You need to know what to do if it goes wrong, vet, feet, teeth etc and how to spot it if they are sick, injured etc. And knowing all the ground stuff. You should also have someone experienced to help you xx
