We Asked, You Answered: How Much Do You Spend On Your Horse?

Horses are expensive. Like, more than a monthly mortgage payment, expensive. Like, Caribbean cruise and ski vacation all in the same year, expensive.

But we dish over our hard-earned cash because these giant animals bring us so much joy.

The costs associated with horses – from hay and feed, board costs, farm management, equipment and blankets – can vary greatly. So we asked you, our loyal Heels Down subscribers and listeners, how much you pay for your horse, and you delivered.

All next week, from June 24 to 28, we’ll reveal some of the most interesting answers we got only in the Heels Down Brief, our weekday email newsletter. Five riders from different parts of the world will reveal how much they paid for their horse, what they spend monthly in expenses, how they pay for lessons, horse shows and much more.

To be in the know, sign up for the Heels Down Brief, the daily email news blast that puts horses first, 24/7.
