Caring For Your Horse

Owning a horse is great for your health, your nerves, and your mood—it’s also a lot of work. Presumably you will always enjoy the work, which will be both challenging and soothing, but it will also be constant. You cannot decide to skip feeding your horse for a day.

Before you decide to adopt or buy a horse, or even consider accepting one as gift, make sure you know what is required to take proper care of an equine. The average life span of a horse is 25-30 years and there are horses that have on record lived to be 56! Not only are you making a commitment of care for a long period of time, but also a commitment to take care of all of its needs on a daily basis physically, mentally, and financially. Please consult a local veterinarian to establish specific care and feed guidelines for your horse.

The booklet below was put together by Ripley’s Horse Aid Foundation and it addresses all aspects of Equine Care.
