    I owned horses for many years. Yes there's an initial investment, but the horsy folk are supportive and it certainly is wonderful for teenagers. I found the on going cost not too hard once over the bump.

    SiB you must have had a clothes horse. Owning horses is like digging a big hole in the ground to throw money in to burn. In my experience it does not matter what you pay for a horse ($500.00 or $50,000.00), that will be the cheapest end of the deal. If I had spent as much on rifles as my missus has spent on horses and associated paraphernalia then I would need a separate building to store them in.

    Munsey, riding a horse is a skill that everyone should have and learning to be comfortable around big animals is something that will benefit your daughter throughout her lifetime but don't ever buy her one. By all means encourage her to hook up with some other rich smuck that will buy her one (when she is old enough).
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Even better, have a little land and let horsey people graze their horses there. Charge them $60 a week and your kids get to ride their horses as well to exercise them
