Since I started my blog and my friends are watching Maddie grow in showing, they now are asking questions about buying a horse for their children. That is a loaded question which can be very difficult to answer. I never want to crush someone’s dreams but I also want to give them information which can save them and the horse in the long run.
I found a great article on buying your first horse as a beginner. It’s a great resource for anyone looking at getting a horse for the first time. Some of the points which I really appreciated were how the author warned about buying cheap and also getting a rescue horse for your first horse. We lease our Indie and it was great the author included this option. Two other things she pointed out was don’t buy a baby and always take someone who knows what they are doing with you. Horses are not like puppies. Having a pet to grow up with isn’t a good idea with a horse. Children will grow bored quickly and being inexperienced is not best with a young horse.
