The question of whether to own a horse is a big one. Having your own horse is exciting and fulfilling, but it is also a big responsibility.
As an owner you have not only the financial responsibility of caring for a horse and being prepared for emergencies, but are also solely responsible for their training and making decisions on where and how they live.
When you get your first horse, everything you suddenly need to know can feel overwhelming!
But there is another option to owning a horse that can provide the benefits of the owner experience without necessarily all of the responsibility.
