Thought this was too fun not to participate… especially since I’m eating pb&j all Q1 to pay off my credit card and hopefully soon new saddle. From An Eventful Life!
Imagine someone gave you $100,000 free and clear. Assume taxes are already taken care of and you can spend the whole amount. The catch: you have to spend the whole amount on horse-related things. What do you buy?
Much to my husband’s dismay, the game is to do horsey expenses only… so I’m not going to list pay off our debts even though that’s really what I would do with the money.
1. Buy a 3′ Registered AQHA Hunter/Jumper – $40,000
I love my Simon and he’s not going anywhere, but I want a 3′ A quality amateur horse that I can show at our local A shows as well as AQHA breed shows… aka Congress!
2. Buy two custom saddles – $12,000
Both of my horse’s would never have to worry about a sore back again, because I would make sure I never rode in anything that wasn’t custom built for them!
3. Do a little shopping… – $5,000
Custom boots? Check. TS breeches in every color? Check. Whatever tack my ponykins needs? Triple check.
4. Put Simon in full training – $10,000
Simon would have a year of tons of pro rides both at home and at the shows. He would get better and better under their guidance, and I would ride him following the plan and program!
5. Go horse show! – $33,000
With the kind of shows I’d want to do with my new fancy horse, I’d say this will last about 2-3 years… but that would involve actual number crunching. Though I don’t have any desires to do weeks at WEF with this imaginary money, I would love to do the big TX A shows and maybe Colorado!
Any idea about what you would do with $100,000 only for playing pony?
