You could also consider making your horse work for a living. For example, at my barn I pay reduced board for my horse in exchange for letting the advanced students use him in lessons. If your horse is quiet and sane enough to be used in lessons or take folks out on a trail ride, you may be able to trade his services for free or reduced board.
As long as he’s not a hot-head, overweight or unfit, it doesn’t matter whether or not your horse has a natural talent for jumping. Virtually every horse can clear a 3 foot fence, and you are starting with a few inches. So if you have a large Shire horse or little pony, your equine friend will have no problem clearing small fences.
Honestly I considered not writing about this gem because I want it all to myself. But that’s just not the right spirit of things is it? So now you know my secret. Stop in and check them out. You’ll be glad you did! Tell them the San Diego Horse Examiner sent you!

The Scottish Equestrian Hotel is another great place to stay. It is directly across from the Auction market and is a nice Bed and Breakfast where you can get a comfortable night’s sleep. There is a Bistro on sight where you can eat. You can choose from single, twin, double and family rooms. This Bed and Breakfast is part of an equestrian farm and you can go horse riding if you desire.
This particular trip on the way home I was praying in the spirit. I felt a peace when I finished, and leaned my head against the wall next to the window shutting my eyes. I didn’t go to sleep for I have never been able to really sleep aboard an airplane. I just rest my eyes.
Further, when you walk your dog, you can wear whatever you want, however, this is not the case with riding or working a horse. You will have to have certain types of equestrian appreal to ride your horse. This includes boots, jods, gloves and protective helmets. All of these items are strictly for the protection of you and your horse. Again, there are other types of equipment that are necessary such as lunge lines, bitting rigs, bridles, carts etc. All of these things can get very costly.
The average middle class family has an annual income of roughly ,000 per year. With long-term care, including home care, assisted living or skilled nursing averaging close to ,000 a year per person, the question looms larger than ever; how do I protect my quality of life? Even though one in four adults cares for someone who is chronically ill, when asked about the possibility of it happening to them, the answer is often the same.
