Buying a Horse

It is every riders dream to own their own horse or pony. Owning a horse is a big commitment and they require daily care, exercise and veterinary treatment, which usually rely on insurance due to the sheer expense of bills.

When you begin to look at buying a horse there are a number of considerations:

  • Type
  • Breed
  • Size
  • Sex
  • Temperament
  • Who will be riding
  • What the horse will be used for
  • Where the horse will be stabled
  • Price

Elms pets recommend buying your horse from a private owner. Horse dealers are best avoided, as these horses can often be unpredictable and their history unknown.
