Is it true that the equestrian activity is a hobby for only rich people?

no
Heck yes. Entry fees in NZ have doubled this year. I mean it’s nearly a weeks wage to take 2 horses to an event once you add gas
no definitely not! it is very expensive but you can work for your lesson or board or anything like that at your barn.
nope not at all!
Hello ! I think that horse riding is an expensive hobby yes, but it doesn't mean that only rich people can ride. As everything in life, it is easier if you are rich, but a lot of riders don't have that much money but sacrifice a lot of their personal comfort to be able to ride.
No. It's not as easy if you're not rich and horse ownership may not be possible, but it is certainly not just for rich people.
No, certainty not
