UPDATED FOR 2014: Horses for Beginners: A Horse Handbook of Horse Facts on Looking After and Riding Horses- A Quick Start Guide to Horse Care and Horse Health
Before you go to the great expense of buying a horse, you need to evaluate how good a rider you are, and just how much do you really know about horses and horse care. Make no mistake; you need to really be honest with yourself as this is a huge commitment. Ask yourself what size and age of horse would work best for you as well.
Okay you have just fallen in love with a flashy looking equine and now what? What do you want to achieve and is THIS the horse for you? Are you going to be hunting, driving, barrel racing, trail riding or jumping? Are you going to ride at all? You can get horses just to drive.
What about this horse's temperament? Is he quiet, feisty, pushy, amenable, or grumpy? If you aren't comfortable with horses, don't get a pushy horse, as you will find it ruling you and not the other way around. If you are planning to just trail ride, don't buy an eventing horse.
This guide will educate you on horse care, horse health and many other horse facts you need to know.
