Before You Ride or Buy

Before enrolling in lessons or buying a horse, we suggest you read our free e-booklet,

The Hobby You Can Hug! 

  We horse owners will attest that having a horse of your own is truly rewarding. But, when first-timers open their wallets before they open their eyes and ears, the result can be disappointing. When someone says, "Owning a horse wasn't what I thought it would be," chances are, they just got started with the wrong information. This easy-read booklet explains how the U.S. horse industry is 'organized.' It will help you know how to find the right starting point for you; and will explain where you can go from there. All before you spend a penny on lessons, and surely before you spend a few thousand dollars on a horse.

     Here is an earnest comment from the president of the American Association of Riding Schools:

    "No matter what any horse breeder, trainer or seller tells you - no matter how logical or heart-rending the story may sound - horses are just like cats and dogs. There will always be more good horses for sale than there are potential owners. Don't purchase a horse just because you think you need to save it from a bad situation; or because you think it's a deal you can't pass by.
   Take the time it takes to find the horse that is a perfect match for you. Because, the bad news is ... if the horse you purchase turns out to be the wrong one - or if life changes after you buy -  you cannot hang the horse on a hook in the garage ... and now the law of supply and demand will not be on your side."
