If you’re thinking about buying or loaning a horse, make sure you take on board as much information about their care as possible before making your final decision. As well as your love and care, your horse will need a lot of your time and dedication. Taking care of a horse is also a significant financial responsibility, so make sure that you understand what all the everyday costs are likely to add up to, and bear in mind that there will occasionally be unexpected costs for things like emergency vet care.
