Need A New Pet? How About A Horse?

As you know, I am quite the outdoor lover, which means that I spend as much of my time as I can outside. Whether it is camping or having a BBQ, I enjoy getting out there and having fun. If you are thinking about a new pet that will suit your outdoorsy nature, why not consider a horse? Most people would never dream of getting a horse, but you can do it if you try. Here is why you should get one.

Your kids will love your new pet


If, like me, you are a mother, you will know how much young children love animals. When your kids are young, they are full of life. The truth of the matter is that many kids would love to have a horse. Imagine them learning to ride a horse in a field. There is no better way for them to spend their time. Not only will a horse make an excellent pet – it will also provide you all with a fun activity to learn. Horse riding is loads of fun. Try it now.

You have an excuse to get out

When you want to get out and about, your horse gives you the perfect excuse. After all, your pet needs exercise, which means that you need to get out there and ride it. During the summer, there is nothing better than training your horse to do all types of fun tricks. You could even attend a stable school, where you can learn about the different ways to train and ride your horse. Check out whether there are any places in your area today. That way, if you get a horse, you will know where to go.

Horse care is easier than you think
Most people think that horse care is difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, there are loads of ways you can make the most of your horse. You can even buy horse medicine, such as horse wormers online. That means that you don’t have to worry too much about paying loads for your horse’s health care. You should check out some care tips online now so that you know how to care for your horse. If you start learning the tips right away, you will have no issues when you get your lovely new pet.

Al21You can socialize with horse lovers
Are you a social person? If you need an excuse to meet loads of new people, a horse might just be it. You can meet like-minded people in groups or at the stable. Before you know it, you will have loads of brand new friends. People love bonding over a mutual passion. That is why people who like the same things tend to get on well. When you meet people, you will already have something in common with them. That will make talking to them much easier than it normally is.

It is an investment
Some people will tell you that buying a horse is a waste of money, but it is an investment. There is nothing wasteful about buying an animal of this breed. After all, if you want to make extra money, you can breed or hire out your horse for cash. When you want to sell your animal (if you ever want to sell it), you can still make loads of money back. Many people make profits from horses, and so you should consider this as a new income stream. That way, your pet will pay for itself!


If you have never thought about getting a horse, now might be the best time to do so. Start looking online now and see whether your ideal pet is already there.

    Yes, I would love to get a horse! Since I don’t drive, I could trot around town on my 4-legged friend. Just think, no more having to take the subway into Manhattan. I could just jump on my new pet and gallop through the Queens-Midtown tunnel. Can you keep a horse in an apartment, I wonder? I must check the lease! (And would he fit in the elevator???)

    Living in KY, horse country, I know how beautiful horses are. I would just say one extra thing: BE SURE you are able, financially & physically, to care for the horse. It seems not a day goes by in KY without a news story of horses being removed from some person’s care due to neglect. So, just like when you get a dog or cat, be sure!
