How Much Does it Cost to Own a Horse at Home in 2023?

Horses are incredibly expensive, even if you don’t train or compete. If you’ve wondered how much it costs to simply keep horses operating at a bare minimum, you’ve come to the right place. I am going to break down the monthly costs of keeping 3 horses on rented property. At the bottom of this post, I’ll share about our super intense budgeting spreadsheet!

DIY Fly Spray for Horses with Essential Oils

Fly spray is a constant struggle during summer. I hate using chemical sprays, but sometimes that is better than the alternative of your horse getting eaten alive by bugs! Now that I live with my horses, I can spray them multiple times a day with natural products to help them fight the bug battle. But natural products are expensive, too. So I made a “dup” of a natural spray that I liked that works for several hours. It works great to spray during your time with your horse, pre-workout (so you don’t have to wash off the more expensive stuff right after) or if you have the ability to spray throughout the day!

Nanotechnology & Joint Support for Your Horse

I love technology and its applications to improve the lives of our beloved horses. While the natural stuff is powerful and close to my heart, finding something straight from the future is pretty exciting. This joint supplement accomplishes something I believed to be impossible - sending lubrication support straight to the troubled joint. It is called NANOFLEX! (And yes, there is a coupon at the end)

Product Review: EverPillow by InfiniteMoon

After waking up with neck discomfort for awhile, I sought out a new pillow! I'd had my pillow for years, and while it was better than your basic pillow it just wasn't working for me like it use to! I'm a big fan of customization, which is why the EverPillow caught my attention. It is fully adjustable & customizable, so you can have an extra stuffed fluffy pillow one night and a flatter pillow the next if you want! This enables you to find the perfect balance for your body.

Metal Shoes on Horses: The Where, What, How & Why They Disappoint Us

People opt to remove the metal shoes either to improve the health of their horse, or to cut costs. I can quickly tell you that going barefoot will save you money. If your horse needs hoof protection - hoof boots are the obvious choice if you weigh the costs! If you've already decided you want to go barefoot, I will be adding a guide on how to do so. This post explains the need for hoof protection, the downfalls of the metal shoe, and touches on the alternative options available.

Product Review: Total Saddle Fit Shoulder Relief Girth

About a year ago, I spent a large portion of my savings on the perfect saddle for Tucker. This was immediately before the pandemic - great timing on my part! 🤣 I knew I wanted a top quality girth to go with this saddle, so turned to Total Saddle Fit. After about 8 months of using this girth, I can honestly say I am super impressed by the quality and design.
