Riding a horse can be truly exciting. That wind blowing on your hair as you embark on a journey with your new friend, galloping around the place. That sun shining on your body as you gallop around the place with your new friend, even reconnecting with nature itself.
I know. I know.
Experiencing these and more will not only make you a big fan of horses, but also make you want to have one – a new friend to love, a new friend to care for.
So, remember these when buying your first horse:
You have to learn more about horses first.
It’s not just about what you’ll experience when riding a horse. It’s also not just about what kind of horse you’ll buy. It’s about what your horse will experience with you. It’s also about what kind of horse owner you’ll be. You have to learn more about horses first – their natural behaviors, what it means when they do something, how to train them, how to take care of them, and more.
This also includes what your responsibility is as horse owner, what you should do before riding one, what you should do after riding one, who to ask for help when something happens to one during the ride, and more.
You have to consider adopting a horse instead.
To be a good horse owner is to have compassion – not just for your horse, but also for others in kind. To be a good horse owner is also to have passion – not just to be the best owner for your horse, but also to be the best advocate for others in kind.
Even if others are buying a yard horse, you have to consider adopting a horse instead. Even if you can also buy a yard horse, you still have to consider adopting a horse instead.
