Default Horsey people in the US?

Are there any horsey people on here living in the US? If so can you tell me the differences? e.g full livery, DIY how do the prices/services differ from here.
Also is it easy to Loan/share?
Basically how does it all differ from here? what do I need to be aware of.

Many Thanks

You can lease horses in the US for pretty much the boarding costs. For boarding, you can either get your own land, stall, and DIY it, or you can board a horse for anywhere from 300 to 1500 a month, depending on the boarding location.

The way our clients lease their horses is that the leaser covers some or all of the boarding and a % of the medical fees, and in return they get preferential use of the horse whenever they require it.

You would need to locate barns in the region you are moving in to, in order to get quotes and prices. Also, western and pleasure horses are far cheaper to purchase than racing and English saddle horses. You can pick up a decent pleasure ride horse for a couple thousand, if you are willing to train the horse yourself.

Thank you!! think I might get bored doing western all the time, but it's been 20 yrs since I trained a horse so not so sure I'm up to it!!

Our local shelter has a few trail horses up for adoption around 10yrs old. The adoption fees range from $200 to $500 at present.

Sounds great....I'm not there yet though! probably be 6mths to a year, can I ask you then?

I currently have a rescue that I would probably bring with me if only they'd let me as I adore her

One of the other things to put on your to-do list is to check into DEFRA requirements regarding pets being brought back to the UK, as you mentioned bringing other animals and said that if things didn't work out for you, you would just return. While it is pretty straightforward to bring dogs/cats into the US, as long as you ensure they are vaccinated for rabies, there are stringent requirements for taking them back to the UK.

I will, thanks. I'm trying to go with the attitude that it will work out though! at least until the animals have snuffed it

Just checked out the DEFRA website and don't think it would be any harder to bring them back than to take them, in fact from January 2012 it will be even easier

Yes, it is indeed going to get easier and quicker! The blood test period will be very rapid now.

What he said.

Basically he's covered most of it.

There are small differences between barns, but overall its the same thing. You can own/lease/part-lease etc, etc, and boarding costs can differ depending on how much you want them to do.

I've very new to the horsey world, only been riding for 18 months, and never rode in the UK, so can't can't make any comparisons between the two. But it seems that the places I've ridden are pretty flexible and accommodating.
