Is is feasible to keep your own horse through college? Should you?
I’m starting college in the fall and I keep going back and forth about what I should do with my horse. Do I keep her (she would stay behind for the first semester) since I’ve had horses for the majority of my life and I have no idea what I would do without them? Or do I sell her to someone who has time for her?
I’ve had my 8 y/o mare for 3 years and she’s been a good support through all the high school stress (my high school is very fast paced and there’s a lot of pressure to take AP classes, I ended up taking 10, although not without sacrificing a lot of sleep and having some issues w/anxiety). That being said, my horse definitely needs to get out and have a job and I’m worried that I won’t have the time to take care of her and that she will end up sitting while I’m in college, which is not at all fair to her.
