I have two sons. The older son has been at a boarding school and has grown to love horses while he was there. The younger loves anything that his big brother does. My older son wants to continue caring for and riding horses once he comes home, and I think that it would be a great thing for him. On the other hand his schooling has placed a big dent in the family budget.
Horse lessons are the cheapest option that I can think of that would allow the kids to continue riding. Around here that works out to about $160 per person per month for one hour lessons. That’s pushing the limit of what we can afford, ande I’d personally like to have the family be more involved in the care and maintenance of the horses and stables.
So does anyone have any suggestions for how we can do this, or should I take a hint?
